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.

A Song of Speed and Uptime: Announcing the Nile-8VC Partnership

Enterprise networking is the offensive line of IT. It’s not flashy. Few understand its inner workings. It tends to get taken for granted. Yet it is a key determinant of forward progress, and when something goes down, or you need to replace a key piece (or worse, start from scratch), people instantly panic. ‍
