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.

Violinist Miranda Cuckson and composer Rand Steiger collaborate on three works for violin and spatialized electronics, exploring the dazzling, immersive sonic potential of National Sawdust’s 102-loudspeaker Meyer Sound Constellation system. The program will feature the world premiere of Steiger’s “Longing,” written for Miranda Cuckson, and a re-imagining of his work “Nimbus Violin,” originally created in 2016 as part of an installation at Disney Hall for the LA Philharmonic. These will be heard alongside Kaija Saariaho’s four-movement Frises (2011), which layers repeating and reverberating shimmering gestures, and her delicate acoustic violin piece Nocturne (1994).

Called a “visionary and tremendously talented artist” (Sequenza21), violinist and violist Miranda Cuckson delights audiences internationally with her talents playing a remarkably wide range of music, from older eras to the most current creations. She has in recent years become one of the most acclaimed performers of contemporary music, playing innumerable new works and moving new creations more into the center of musical life. Kaija Saariaho is among the most important Finnish composers of her time and one of the leading composers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The New Yorker says "Saariaho’s work ... moves between extremes of pure tone and noise, often finding a cryptic beauty in the middle zone." Rand Steiger is a leading figure among composers who integrate digital signal processing and spatialization in their music. The New York Times says “few composers blend classical instrumentation and digital technology as organically and eloquently,” and called his music "by turns thrilling, gorgeous, threatening and funny.”
