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.

Summer is coming to an end and back to school season is starting soon. But on a positive note - fall is coming! Almost everyone loves fall. Whether it’s because of the changing leaves, the chai tea lattes, or the weather - there are plenty of things to look forward to.

Since many of us love to get into the fall season, there’s no better way than feeling like it’s truly fall than visiting a farm or pumpkin patch. But in case you don’t know of any, there’s no need to worry because we’ve compiled a list of the eight best farms and pumpkin patches to visit near Cleveland.

Since Cleveland is a pretty big city and there’s not much land for farming, these pumpkin patches are just under 42 miles away - meaning it's not too long of a drive. If you're looking for something fun to do on a fall day, load up the family and see what these farms have to offer!

At each of these farms, you'll find a large selection of pumpkins to pick from, beautiful backgrounds for Christmas cards, and plenty of family fun activities. So because fall always comes with a busy schedule, we’ll introduce the places so you can start penciling them in!

Red Wagon Farm

16081 East River Road (Route 252) | Columbia Station | 440-236-3007 | redwagonfarm.com

Red Wagon Farm is only 22.2 miles from Cleveland and is conveniently located off of Route 252. They are currently entering their 55th year of growing some of Ohio's best produce. Red Wagon is best known for its U-Pick Strawberries and Pumpkin Festival.

In addition to the plenty of well-known events offered, their website is loaded with helpful information. There is a tab dedicated to their produce. It provides information on what produce is ready to be bought and what needs more time to ripen. Also, be sure to check out their blog, it is full of great recipes!

A great place for the family! They have a pumpkin patch, hayrides, a corn maze, a children's play area, hot food, cider, and a pumpkin lifting challenge in the fall. They also have strawberry picking in the summer which is a lot funner than it sounds. - Yelp Review
