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.

BIG IDEA | “Everyone with a clear mind won't self-regulate, you just pretend that you do. Who will pay for the loss if you lost your competitive advantage because you self-regulated and others didn't?”
Some in the Chinese press have characterized the government's record fine on Alibaba as 杀鸡儆猴: 'Kill the Chicken to Scare the Monkey.'
As the reporting below suggests however the chicken only got a nick on its throat, and the monkeys, unimpressed, may just keep going, business as usual.

‘China’s technology giants are expecting increased scrutiny and penalties after Alibaba’s record $2.8bn fine on Saturday for antitrust violations.’

  • ‘Employees at Tencent Music and Meituan are concerned they could be targeted next by Beijing’s emboldened competition regulators.'

‘A Meituan employee working in the grocery group-buying unit, which had received the Rmb1.5m fine in March, said he believed Meituan is now just waiting to be fined again.’

  • ‘ “I don’t think [a new fine] will have a big impact.” ’
  • ‘ “We all got fined [in March]. Then we continued . . . There is no change in our product operation and strategies.” ’

‘It is certain in China that tech companies will at least act apologetic in public, as Alibaba did on Saturday.’

  • But “everyone with a clear mind won't self-regulate, you just pretend that you do.” ’
  • ‘ “Who will pay for the loss if you lost your competitive advantage because you self-regulated and others didn't?” said the Meituan employee.’
