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.

We are delighted to announce that Edinburgh-based technology specialist Liftango has appointed Jason McGibbon as its Chair following a search process led by Carlyle Associates. Jason brings more than 20 years’ of investment experience, having spent most of his career as a Partner at global private equity firm Bridgepoint, where he led their private equity consumer investment team across multiple geographies in Europe and North America. 

Since leaving Bridgepoint, Jason now holds a portfolio of NED and Chair positions with a focus on high-growth scale-up businesses in the consumer and technology sectors. 

His significant expertise in business strategy, scale-up, and international expansion, means Liftango is well-positioned to achieve its next phase of growth as it deploys its demand-responsive technology solution in new markets and increases its presence in established locations. 

Liftango powers some of the most successful on-demand shared transport systems across the world, operating in 21 countries to date. They work with many Fortune 500 companies, large global bus operators, and many government transport agencies.

Liftango’s platform helps provide vital access for citizens to more public transport services and further promote more sustainable transport options, while also helping organisations to achieve their scope 3 CO2 reduction goals.
