This attribute is placed on the code that you want to highlight. *Make sure you follow the important and required steps below.*

There are several options for applying this attribute on the page. There may be a workflow benefit in one of these options based on your setup.

Option 1 - Apply to the Webflow HTML Embed element (CMS or static):

This will apply Code Highlight to this embed instance. Useful for applying one or a few Code Highlight instances.

Option 2 - Apply to any parent element wrapping the HTML Embed block(s):

This can be a Rich Text element, a div block, or even the <body> of the page. Any <code> tags that are found inside this parent element will have Code Highlight applied.

* Important and required steps for your code

  1. The code must be wrapped between <pre><code>YOUR_CODE</code></pre> tags.
  2. All < symbols inside the code must be escaped. These are found in the opening and closing <script> or <style> tags. You can replace the < character with &lt; or &#60;

This is what your HTML Embed Code should look like

Use the theme name of the theme as the value of the attribute.

If there are multiple code snippets on the page, this attribute only needs to be applied once. It is not required to add this to each instance.

There can only be one theme applied to per page. It is not possible to apply multiple themes to a page.

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.

<script>
  /**
   * Writes the current year to all elements that match the selector.
   */
  function setCurrentYear() {
    const YEAR_ELEMENTS_SELECTOR = '[fs-hacks-element="year"]';

    const yearElements = document.querySelectorAll(YEAR_ELEMENTS_SELECTOR);
    const currentYear = new Date().getFullYear().toString();

    yearElements.forEach((yearElement) => {
      yearElement.textContent = currentYear;
    });
  }
  
  document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', setCurrentYear);
</script>

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.
