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.

Most people don’t realize the state ranks 9th in the nation for wineries. Ohio’s temperate climate and rich soil makes it a hotspot for vineyards and they intend to maintain the growth - of both the grapes and the industry.

Whether or not you live in Ohio, you definitely need to take a couple road trips and visit their top 10 wineries and vineyards.

Even if you’re not a wine connoisseur, you’ll surely be able to appreciate the breathtaking estates and hard work put into creating each bottle.
