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.

Turn Up the Heat

Homes for Sale In Ohio

1. The Market is Hot in the Summer

Number’s don’t lie. The summer months account for around 40% of all home sales in the average year. While this means there are more people competing for their dream home, don’t be discouraged by the common statement that spring and summer is a “seller’s market.” While it is true that prices may be higher in the warmer seasons, the increased number of houses for sale balances out the higher demand. Plus, if other buyers become discouraged by the price increases, this just makes it easier for you!

2. School's Out for Summer

If you have kids, moving during the school year can make the transition difficult for them. It makes more sense for them to get settled in the area, meet some new friends in the neighborhood, then start the new school year off with ease. However, moving in the summer is only one way to make the move easier for your kids. Check out these tips to help make the transition even easier.


3. Get a Sense of the Community

The weather is beautiful. People are outside swimming, doing yard work, and going for walks around the neighborhood. The increased activity level helps you get a feel of what the neighborhood is like and meet some of the neighbors. Make new friends, learn about community events going on, and even host a housewarming summer cookout.


4. Easier to Sell Your Current Home

Remember earlier when I said the summer is a “seller’s market”? There’s a positive side to this statement if you’re looking to buy a new home. The selling season is heating up, meaning you can get more now for your current home than if you wait. You’re going to have to sell your current house if you’re looking to move, so why not get the most you can for it?

5. More Supply Means More Options

Buying a new home is a huge decision, and you want it to be perfect. Whether you need an open concept living room, a large inground pool with a diving board, or a cozy den, your chances of finding that ideal home are much higher during the summer. If your heart is set on a specific area, now is the time to increase your chances of getting exactly what you want exactly where you want.
