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.

“The privilege of absurdity is reserved for the only human creature,” - Thomas Hobbes.
If an iconic phrase could describe Gopal Dagnogo's work, it would undoubtedly be the one above. Taken from the book Leviathan written by the famous philosopher Thomas Hobbes, it perfectly sums up the artist's thought and his vision of human societies.
Gopal Dagnogo is a Franco-Ivorian artist. He mainly produces works on canvas and drawings, through the use of mixed media. But above all, his work is about revealing, from everyday details, what society can offer in contradictions and sometimes ubiquitous behaviour.
A virtuoso of black humour, he claims to follow the opportunities that arise in his artistic career, letting himself be carried away by the winds.
“Whatever the case, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference,” - Gopal Dagnogo.
A tinged modesty and a scathing laugh that characterises a painter, but above all a man: professions have never had the power to replace souls. Behind the name of Gopal Dagnogo also exists a history, origins, imbued with passions like a marked interest in Japanese culture.
