Multi line heading

Hi,

I working on a heading component that could have two lines. I would like to make it possible for the content manager to specify the breaking point of the line so that the output would look like this:

<h1 class="heading heading-large">
      The fastest way to <br>build the fastest sites.
</h1>

I wonder how should I structure the content in Prismic. So far I have come up with two solutions, yet they seem not ideal …

Solution 1

Title: title_line_one -> line 1
Title: title_line_two -> line 2

<h1 class="heading heading-large">
  {page.title_line_one} <br>{page.title_line_two}
</h1>

Solution 2

Rich Text: Title -> line 1 </br> line 2

<h1 class="heading heading-large">
  {page.title}
</h1>

In the first one, you have to define an extra field. In the second one the output of the {page.title} wraps

around the text node.

I wonder if there is a better solution to tackle this?

I don’t understand what the issue is with the second one ?
Using shift+enter (cmd+enter on mac) you can insert a
in the richtext field (or in the header field) so the output would be exactly what you showed in your initial example…

<h1 class="heading heading-large">
      The fastest way to <br>build the fastest sites.
</h1>

Sorry, I had to explain it a bit better. The output that I get from the RichText is:

<h1 class="heading heading-large">
     <p>The fastest way to <br>build the fastest sites.</p>
</h1>

The RichText adds a <p> inside the <h1> which is not valid HTML. If render as text then I loose <br /> tag.

You can probably make a custom HTML serialiser, but if Prismic is returning invalid HTML, they should know! @phil?

You should just use a rich text field in this case rather than a title field. Just make sure to disable everything that's not a 'heading' and enable 'multi line paragraphs'. This should give you the functionality that you need.

And you can restrict the rich text to only include heading tags.

I’m curious, can you query the document using the api explorer and paste the json for the title field ?

also can you tell us what are you using to render that json to html ?
