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.

Taking over the P72 rooftop First Floor Gallery Harare is spotlighting a sculptor working with repurposed reworked and reimagined for the 21st century tyre rubber.
As much as rain or shine speaks to the defiant robustness of the material chosen by the artist, it also asserts the adamance that is demanded by one’s art practice to carry one in any environment. The demand to persevere for sculptors is one that call on physical and emotional endurance. The outcomes are then physical victories as well as intellectual and emotional ones.
Like many of his peers on the continent from Igshaan Adams to Ibrahim Mahama and fellow Zimbabweans Troy Makaza and Wallen Mapondera, Magasa is a narrative abstractionist. Each of his tyre-based complications retains its intrinsic literal journey, as well as an associative history we all respond to, when we see any element of a tyre. However Magasa adds an element of magic, play and conjecture, through carving, spray paint and the sheer contortion of shapes, which elevates and enables the physical properties of the material to merge with their story-telling ones effortlessly. The works becoming an embodiment of life being a journey not a destination, for each of us to be carried away by, rain or shine.
