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.

Challenge

Crux Publishing founder, Peter Newport came to us looking for help in re-designing some aspects of their website. With the launch of a new “Crux Community Bulletin” section, it was important to showcase this while ensuring it was easily distinguishable from the regular news. Other fresh design aspects included the addition of a ‘Photo of the day’ section and integrating an Ad Manager for the site's shift to commercial advertising.
