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.

  • Hello bullet points

Hi Team,

I was asked by PDT to send some deployment emails for the more technical and invisible features that got deployed over the past few days. Here's the first one:

## What? ##

Up until now, EGT has been using a 2-year-old (that is super old in tech terms) version of NodeJS (our runtime engine for our backend code). We have successfully bumped it to version 12 and tested that there were no breaking changes.

## So what? ##

This enables us to use the latest features and it has boosted our server speed quite a bit.

## Shoutouts ##

Thanks to Leo for bumping one of the CircleCI jobs that I missed. Thanks to Gunar for the graphs in #egt-performance and thanks to all of EGT and PDT for testing on staging before we deployed to production.

## What's Next? ##

This is just the beginning. Tim is investigating better workflow for our hosted infrastructure and EGT as a whole will be making time to get some much-needed love to our codebase.
