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.

There are three main entrances to the trail. The first and most popular is the Hipp Station Entrance. It is located behind Fox’s Pizza and has a view of the old train station. The second is the Walmart entrance which is beside the Walmart Superstore in Millersburg (a perfect place to grab some supplies before your trip). The third is on Route 83 in Holmesville which has a cool bridge/tunnel to travel through.

The trail is in two separate sections. The southern one is 7.3 miles, stretching between Brinkhaven/Gann and Glenmont. Towards the western end, the trail connects to Mohican Valley Trail if you wish to continue your activity.

While traveling along this trail you will come across Millersburg’s historical train depot.

Along the trail you may also come across many forms of wildlife. Some sightings may include turtles, birds, and snakes. There are swampy areas and a creek to enjoy as well. 

Continuing along the trail, you will enter a small town called Holmesville where you can walk for about a mile before the trail takes you back to nature. This time, the views include farmland and streams before it ends at the Fredericksburg trailhead.
