Whatโ€™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 sat down with
to ask
a few questions...
If you could switch your job with anyone else within Hubly, whose job would you want & why?

My role involves back to back meetings with customers, stakeholders, investors and co-workers as well as context switching. I love the excitement of it but on the days where I'm being pulled in a hundred different directions I dream of being a software developer so that I can focus on one mission at a time and just get lost in the code.


How have you grown since starting at Hubly?

I co-founded Hubly as fresh graduate out of university with a passion for solving problems in an industry that I liked. I am now the CEO of a growing team, customer base, and product. I donโ€™t think I could have ever imagined being in this position a couple of years ago and it still sometimes feels like a dream. I have grown both personally and professionally through this times, becomes very self-aware of my role as a leader in the context of Hubly.ย 

Where are we most likely to find you outside of work?

Definitely doing some sort of activity, probably one of the following: Crossfit, Hiking, Skiing, Squash, Running, Camping.ย ย
