What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Narrated by

The one called loneliness

Has found new names

The TV crackles, the leaves cackle, the car horns bark

The voice of a man that had not spoken to her in months

He was soaking his pillow with water and salt

The hallway heaves, the Cathedral Sighs

He was running from the rhythms of his soul

Claiming that music left him in the middle of his hope

Women divorce their husbands

Boys grow hearts between their legs

She uncoiled her hand from the grasp of his lies

Breaking slowly until she found God

Mansions bow down, butters flood bodies

Holding the lantern to the truth

She opened her mouth to silence the war

Fingers clasp, chords rise in proportionate rings

He lines his heart with the sounds of the universe

Pauses his heartbeat until he hears her

In the quietness of the noon day heat.
