What’s a Rich Text element?

FGHFG

DDFGHDFGH

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.

Whether you’re new to the area or just looking for a bite to eat while visiting this side of Columbus, we’ve put together a few spots we think you’ll love!

Local Cantina

Overview

The Local Cantina has several locations around Columbus including one in the Hilliard area! They’re a Mexican restaurant that loves adding their own touch to classic Tex-Mex dishes.

Local Cantina also loves to serve craft beers. They bring them in from all over the world, and several from right here in Ohio. They are mostly served in cans, and there is a philosophy behind this practice: Cans use less energy than glass, they’re easier to recycle, and the unique flavor of these beers is preserved better behind a can than they would be behind glass. The beer list varies by location so you’ll have to check it out when you go! One last important thing: Happy hour is 3 to 6 pm Monday through Friday!
