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.

The Cleveland Holiday Markets

Cleveland’s weekend markets are generally fantastic-- full of friends, food, and all sorts of interesting vendors-- but you haven’t seen anything yet! The holiday market takes everything up a notch with hands-on workshops, evening holiday parties, choir performances, and limited edition holiday items. That’s what we’d call extra festive.
