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.

Reliable for our programmable SMS needs!

I like how Twilio drives our user authentication process through a single API that does the job of an otp ( one-time password ), while also guarding our verification process against artificially inflated traffic attacks by continuously monitoring our current and previous sms traffic behaviour. Twilio has consistently not only met but often surpasses the requirements and expectations.

Go to for your Authentication!

Very easy to use, with a ton of information available on how certain functions work and why. The help center is very comprehensive such that a beginner could navigate the platform with just research. Navigation through different parts of the platform can prove to be difficult due to some of the placements of things not being as intuitive as others. this makes brand management a bit more difficult.

An absolute pleasure to work with for SMS needs!

Everyone at Sinch that I've worked with has been extremely responsive, whether it is questions about adding additional features, or supporting our end users, to even handling billing issues; this level of responsiveness really establishes a strong business parnership. The biggest downside in our experience has been cost, where we have seen some other vendors be a little more competitive in the market

Unreliable Business Partner!

We were attempting to address gaps in our other providers' coverage, but we have realized it was better to work with those partners to address delivery issues rather than rely on Sinch. Our other partners make it much easier to pull real-time data via API, and we also have a much better business relationship with them. On balance, the negatives outweigh the positives in our relationship with Sinch.

Brilliant Unified Platform!

Being able to interact with our clients via their preferred platforms, using a single API is incredibly efficient, and saves us a lot of work and headaches. It's helpful also for sending through notifications for updates on their services or orders with us. Our only issue with MessageBird is that there is no monthly billing invoice/statement.

If you need to integrate SMS services, this is the one!

Message bird has an impressive yet simple user interface, which allows you to configure all the necessary aspects to integrate Whatsapp, social network messaging and text messages. However, I think that an opportunity for improvement is to be able to quickly make the user who logs in for the first time understand where to click to go to the inbox.
