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.

The concert features the world premiere of Golnaz Shariatzadeh's work fabric of sorrow for saxophone, electronics and animation, commissioned by MATA Presents 2023.

Embodying an array of emotions and reflections - grief, loss, stasis, nostalgia, dream states, and hope - These solo works speak together: each a solemnly sovereign single voice saying what it must.
