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.

You might love your house, but you’re going to go outside at some point and you’ll be even happier if there are activities in the area you enjoy.

Galena, Ohio

Galena, Ohio is located about thirty minutes north of downtown Columbus, located on the tip of the Hoover Reservoir its small village with under 1,000 residents to its name. The smallest place to live on this list by far, but that doesn’t discount its charm and isolation from those looking for a slower life in the suburbs.

The neighboring communities surrounding Galena can provide some more activity if this is something you are looking for, and once you’re finished with the more lively day and nightlife you can return to the quiet streets of this village. 

The Arrowhead Lakes Golf Course is a public course servicing the Galena area and all the golf players in it. Constructed in 1989, it’s an easily accessible course but not too far out of the way for anyone who goes looking.

A nine-hole course with a driving range, lessons available by appointment, as well as a pro shop, this golf course provides simplicity with a small local feel to it. Not everyone wants to live life in the big city and prefers a town where everyone will know you by name.

Galena is the best town on this list for those who prefer that option, so everyone looking for a sleepy Central Ohio village to call home should visit Galena.

Plain City, Ohio

It’s no surprise that another Columbus suburb like Plain City, Ohio is rich in not only its history but its dedication to the preservation of its natural landscape, with plenty of emphasis on local foods and farmers at locally sourced bakeries and markets.
