The rich text field is fully extensible. Give editors access to elements like headings, links and uploads or configure the editor to embed complex relationships. By building custom components within the field itself, anything is possible. Content is stored as JSON—not HTML, so you can use it anywhere.Learn about the rich text editor
Manage content for every language needed and deliver it to multiple domains or a single website with language translations. Choose which fields are localized, even within nested structures or relationships.
Payload has an easy way to show and hide fields based on the value of other fields. For example, you might have an “Enable Link” checkbox, that, when checked, a few more fields should be rendered.
