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.

Responsible for “changing the face of opera” (The Wall Street Journal), BMP: NEXT GEN returns for the final round of its second ever cycle as Beth Morrison Projects’ leaders set out to discover the next generation of boundary-pushing composers.

Chosen from a group of ten finalists during Cycle 1 in 2021 for their “haunting” and “stunningly beautiful” work, composers Elizabeth Gartman and Niloufar Nourbakhsh return with two 30 minute pieces, It is a Comfort to Know and Threshold of Brightness respectively. Following the concert, one of the composers will receive a commission for the development and world premiere of a full-length opera.

Don’t miss this strictly limited engagement! Experience the creative genius of these two incredibly brilliant and budding composers on June 23 and 24th at National Sawdust, with the winner being announced on June 24.
