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.

Smerz invites you on a journey from Rome to Oslo; from the baroque through modernism; and from the early 2000s and into the future. Smerz will present material from their debut album, Believer, released on XL Recordings, alongside unreleased work in process.

Smerz are the Norwegian duo of Henriette Motzfeldt and Catharina Stoltenberg. Known for the “carefully shaped, deconstructed pop” (Boomkat) of their debut EP’s Okey (2017) and Have Fun (2018), Smerz seamlessly weave together techniques and sounds pulled from a dizzying array of genres, with the end product always resulting in something altogether uncanny. Smerz released their critically acclaimed debut album Believer in 2021.

Ouri grew up in France, in a family of mixed french and afro-carribean descent. On her debut album Frame of a Fauna, she shatters the oftentimes submissive and distant approach to ambient sound to finally take up space and connect to her own experience.

Ouri takes her knowledge of big orchestral sound, and creates her own fusion, puncturing the classical with industrial abrasions and electronic nuance. Sound fills to the brim, cello meets synth, becomes lush and ethereal, only for her feather light voice to slither in with ferocity. You weed through the sound to meet her in her sincerity. In this way we are listening twice-for what she wants to say, and what she wants to feel- which are not always the same.
