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.

Technical SEO Checklist

1. Make sure Google can crawl your website

Google can only index content that is crawlable. If your site is not crawlable, it means it won't have any chance to rank. Inspect Coverage reports in Google Search Console forany warnings or exclusions relating to robots.txt

2. Make sure Google can index your website

Google must first index your page to be able to rank in Google. If it can’t fully access your page, it won’t rank no matter how good the page is or how much traffic it gets.Google Search Console enables you to inspect URLs and see whether your page has been indexed. If not, you can request indexing with only one click.

3. Make sure your site is accessible on only 1 domain

Using more than one domain for your website can lead to indexing, crawling, and security issues. Your website should be accessible only from one domain. When using more than one domain at the same time, you should set up a permanent 301 redirect.

4. Secure your site with HTTPS

HTTPS is one of the most important ranking signals for Google. If you haven’t launched your site yet, set it up with HTTPS on day 1. If your site is live and not yet on HTTPS, move it as soon as possible.

5. Optimize your page speed

40% of your visitors will leave your website off them if it takes more than three seconds to load.
