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.

My mentor and I had such great chemistry that I can honestly say that I felt like the match was perfect. My mentor was outstanding for several reasons. For one, her expertise in and enthusiasm for her field stood out. This made the mentorship feel not only seamless and productive, but it also added to the depth of learning and fun throughout.....

My mentor was extremely knowledgeable, to a point of awe. Yet even with all of that knowledge he still was approachable and friendly. I felt I both learned fundamental computer science and data analysis principles but also how to gain more knowledge on my own. My mentor was incredible!

The most meaningful aspect of the mentoring experience for me was the relationship I created with (my mentor). It was an amazing experience because not only was I lucky enough to work with such a smart and determined person, but I was also able to discover something that I loved working through so much."
