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.

Perhaps you aren’t into the power of dancing. That’s okay! Maybe a laugh-out-loud or suspenseful, on-the-edge-of-your-seat play is more your thing. At Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park, entertaining stage shows are what you’ll get. Single tickets go on sale July 16th and they can buy you a seat to watch Stephen King’s “Misery,” a comedy called “The Roommate,” or the holiday favorite “A Christmas Carol”, among many others. The Playhouse is a wonderful venue where amazing stories come to life!

3. Shows at the Cincinnati Theater

Award winning musicals, plays, and Broadway shows tour at the Cincinnati Theater, so you’ll definitely want to do some research on their website because there’s a LOT to look into. In addition to stage shows, the theater also has a variety of musical concerts, and comedy and stand-up performances.

We recommend buying tickets for the musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Why? Since its 2013 premiere in London, it’s been a massive hit with audiences. It won 2 Olivier Awards for its colorful, detailed costumes and creative lighting design. Besides, who wouldn’t want to step into a candy wonderland alongside the eccentric Willy Wonka? You can buy your golden ticket for a magical journey straight into the factory, and you don’t even have to open a hundred chocolate bars first!

4. Gallery shows at the Cincinnati Art Museum

Not all brilliant shows have to include performances. Every week, Gallery Experiences at the Cincinnati Art Museum stimulate your mind and allow you to become engaged with the works of art.

One particular Sunday, you can sign up for a guided tour that is focused on ugliness in art and how we perceive what exactly makes “bad” art bad. The museum also offers shows designed specially for infants to develop their minds, and “touch tours” for visitors who are blind or suffer from vision problems. They along with their families can explore the museum through touch. How cool is that?

Most of the shows are free, but reservations are recommended! There are so many different programs, and so many different ways to look at art!

5. Operas and Orchestras at the Cincinnati Music Hall
