Rich Embeds

Rich Editor supports embedding of external content within posts. Use the embed menu to transform a link into a rich content embed.

_Alternatively, pressing enter at the of a line containing only a link also attempt to create an embed from that link._

While we fetch the data for the embedded content, the link appears as a link with a loading indicator.

Once the embed is ready it will display in it’s final form directly in the editor.

Text Formatting

![The bold, italic, strikethrough, code, and link buttons](https://images.v-cdn.net/docs/richeditor_inlineformats.PNG

This first set of buttons allows you to add bold, italic, strike, code, or link formatting to selected text. This menu is dynamic and contextual, appearing wherever the user makes a selection. The following standard keyboard shortcuts also work when you have begun typing inside the editor.

·     ctrl+b or ⌘+b for bold.

·     ctrl+i or ⌘+i for italic.

·     ctrl+k or ⌘+k for link.


List are created by inputting - or 1., causing either numbers or bullet-points to mark each item in the list. After starting one of these two options, Rich Editor will jump you to the first point in your list. After writing the first point, hitting enter will bring you to the next point. Once you’re done with your list, just hit enter twice, and it will let you work on other aspects of your post.

Headings and Special Text Formatting

The block formatting menu provides a range of formatting options that take up 1 or multiple lines. Current formats include:

·     Text

·     Headings (level 1 and 2)

·     Quotes/Blockquotes

·     Code Blocks

·     Spoilers

Once a spoiler is posted it’s contents will be hidden until their content is toggled. The spoiler format is always visible while editing a post, and can be interacted with once the post is published.


This button contains a list of emoji that can be used within a post. Rich Editor provides 1000s of emojis for all of users sorted into 8 different categories.

Uploading Images

Users with permission to upload images can add images to their post using the image upload button next to the emoji picker. Alternatively images can be dragged into Rich Editor.
