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.

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.

Sundry & Vice

This creative cocktail bar’s website opens with a quote from William Shakespeare’s King Lear. “Give me an ounce of civet, good apothecary, to sweeten my imagination.” This bar has got the apothecary part covered! As their name suggests, they have a variety of colorful cocktails named mysteriously after precious gems like the Ruby, Opal, and Diamond. The latter is corn whiskey, lillet rose, Ceylon tea, and vanilla, described as boozy, balanced, and light. This is the perfect place for a group happy hour. The bar itself is beautiful and will accommodate groups of up to 60 people. Sundry & Vice also has a rotating draft beer list and a Boilermaker Menu. Beer and a shot anyone?

This large and luxurious piece of Cincinnati’s night life was established in 2012 in a Civil War era building. It underwent a difficult restoration project to create the rustic and sensual ambience you will see at Igby’s. To accompany their craft cocktail menu, a limited item food menu was created to include bites like Chicken Bruschetta Focaccia Pizza. Onto the most important thing - the extensive beer menu includes all of your faves in addition to new local Cincinnati brews. Whiskey lovers will be drawn to sip their favorite style next to Igby’s oversized fireplace. Pick from Kentucky Bourbons, Whiskeys and Scotches. Igby’s also offers bottle service and bookings for private parties.

Blind Pig

The Blind Pig dubs themselves Cincy’s “modern-day speakeasy,” just a quick walk from the Red’s Stadium. There’s a large rooftop area (pictured below) with plenty of seating underneath heat lamps and a view of the Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds. Visit their website to book an event. Look up from your beer to a unique decor including a Jameson bottle chandelier and maybe a Jameson bottle Christmas tree if it’s the right time of year! The exposed brick walls behind the bar are lined with flat screens to enjoy your favorite sport. The Blind Pig has a tasty, classic American menu with wing by the dozen, loaded nachos and loaded fries. Burgers and sandwiches are the Blind Pig’s speciality, the signature “Blind Pig” sounds particularly delectable: ham and swiss topped with Guinness onions and mustard.

Arnold’s Bar & Grill

Arnold’s is Cincinnati’s oldest operating tavern, serving people drinks since 1861. It’s history goes back at least 20 years prior however, when it was operated as a bit more of a seedier joint. It stayed open in the 1920s to operate as a speakeasy, and remained in the same founding family until the 1950s. Today, Arnold’s is one of the best places in Cincinnati to see live music, with acts 3 or 4 times a week. The vibe in Arnold’s is made up by its dark wood and antique decor. Arnold’s food menu includes whatever you crave, including signature entrees and vegetarian options: like Rhonda’s Vegetarian Cincy Chilli, the alternative to classic Cincinnati Chilli. Drink a barrel aged speciality cocktail, choose from one of the best Bourbon lists in the city, or sample a variety of local beers. Arnold’s never fails to disappoint!
