Insert tweets or code samples into content
Embedding content inside rich text is a matter of defining the structure for your content and then providing specific content based on that structure. See how it all works on the example of tweets inside articles.
Create a content type for the tweet
The first step is to create a content type that will define the basic elements of the tweet.
(Optional) Add another Multiple choice element for selecting a theme.
Add two options named Dark and Light.
Set the element to show as Radio buttons.
Click Save changes.
The finished Tweet content type can look similar to what you see below.
Insert a tweet
Once you have the tweet defined, you can insert it as a component in a rich text element of an article, for example.
Go toContent & assets.
Using the filters on the left, select the Article content type to view only articles.
Open an article for editing.
In a rich text element, place the cursor where you want to add the tweet.
In the editor toolbar, click and then.
Choose Tweet from the list of types.
Fill in the elements.
You now have a tweet that exists only within the article as a component.After you finish, you can continue editing the article. Changes made to the tweet are saved automatically.This is what the final result can look like in your app:
Other use casesThe principle is the same for other types of content. If you were to embed code samples, for instance, you would add a text element for the code itself and an option to select a programming language to enable proper language-specific syntax highlighting.
From single-use to re-useIf you later find another use for the content in your component, you can always convert it to a content item by clicking .This conversion cannot be undone. If done by accident, archive the new item and create your component again.
