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.

Event information

In celebration of Matariki ki te Manawa, Viaduct Harbour presents ‘WHAEA’ – a campaign that shines light on the extraordinary wāhine in the Viaduct Harbour community, developed by London-based Māori Creative Director Tuhirangi Blair (Ngāti Whātua, Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Awa).

Captured on 35mm film by photographer Leilani Heather and video by Rob Byrne, WHAEA (Aunty) celebrates the inspiring leaders who are carrying forward Viaduct Harbour’s legacy and shaping the future of the precinct, featuring Tarati Blair-Hunt (Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei), Olivia Carter (Soul Bar & Bistro) and Emma Rogan (Hello Beasty).

Blair explains his inspiration behind the campaign:

“As someone who's been blessed with amazing Aunties who deeply influence my creative journey, this campaign is a personal homage to them and all the phenomenal women who inspire us every day.” 

Blair continues, “The campaign focuses on the star Hiwa-i-te-Rangi which embodies hope and aspiration. Her name translates to "vigorous of growth in the sky." During Matariki, the Māori New Year, Hiwa-i-te-Rangi signifies a time for setting intentions and planning for a prosperous future.  She also connects us to our ancestors, as honouring them is key to achieving future success.”

Drawing reference to Hiwa-i-te-Rangi, the campaign touches on the following themes: ‘Hope & Aspiration’, ‘New Beginnings’ and ‘Brighter Future’.
