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.

Two bold voices come together for a provocative National Sawdust+ conversation: Rachel Eliza Griffiths, whose brave, sobering, and lyrical work spans poetry, photography, and mixed media, and pioneering editor Chris Jackson, whose category-defying books have re-shaped the literary narrative at large. The intimate talk will span subjects such as beauty and resistance, and transforming politics and conflict into art.

Each is fueled by a passionate, courageous sensibility that has yielded narratives that challenge and move us, reflecting the world in which we live today – Griffiths’s current Poets House photography exhibition (American Stanzas: 2006-2016) that “marries lyrical and visual cartographies in which race, gender, sexuality, imagination, history, and language orbit each other.” The New York Times Magazine has credited Jackson with “building a black literary movement.” Now, at the helm of the newly-revived One World *imprint, he intends to “explore ideas that help to re-imagine our politics, culture, and interior lives, without the filter of dominant culture… captur[ing] the world in its fullness for this moment.”
