Using custom classes inside CMS Rich Text Field?

Hiya! Just saw that Webflow released an update to the Rich Text Field and I was wondering what the best way to go about building this blog within CMS? image-78 hosted at ImgBB — ImgBB

I am converting our blogs to CMS items and the biggest hurdle is building the blog body in the rich text field natively. I have already simplified the blog to a point where I think it should be possible with custom classes but as far as I am aware, you can’t really add custom classes to rich text inside a CMS item natively (I may be wrong).

For some context, we’re writing our blog posts in Google Docs and the way I am thinking is to wrap the text inside and then put it inside a rich text field inside Webflow CMS. Use the Finsweet Powerful Rich Text library and then it should work?

Also, I was wondering if Google Docs is the best tool to use if I am going to go with this method since there seems to be some incompatibility between the two (formatting while copying-pasting).

Anyway, I am looking forward to what you guys think!

Thank you.

Finsweet PRT is more for embedding HTML chunks in your rich text, like forms and CTAs.
Check out Refokus rich text enhancer instead because it’s designed to allow classes e.g.

[.red]Red text[.red]

I haven’t tried but this should work decently well with Webflow’s new rich text element styling feature. Otherwise there doesn’t seem to be a way to do it natively in the designer yet.

Let us know what you find.

Thank you, I decided to go with Refokus for now and was able to get everything but I am wondering if Powerful Rich Text will be the better option in the long-term, especially since I am using Finsweet’s other Attributes on my website already.


Finsweet’s PRT and Refokus’ RTE are very different feature sets with different goals. PRT doesn’t do what you’re wanting here.

If you’re wanting to use both on same rich text element, be prepared for conflicts. In general I’d advise against it.
