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.

Newark is a small town in Licking County, Ohio, 40 miles east of Columbus, right on the Licking River. In 1802, its first residents built log cabins, and over a few generations, the town grew into a small community with local businesses. Newark has a lot of interesting sites to explore, and they’re all unique. As the home of the largest basket in the world and the biggest geometric earthwork complex in the state, a visit to Newark could never be dull.

For History Lovers

Earthworks

Green
An Archeological Beauty

Between 100 B.C. and 500 A.D., the Hopewell Native Americans constructed this network of hills and enclosed roadways that spreads across over four square miles. As Newark has grown, a lot of the site has been destroyed, but the Great Circle, the Eagle Mound, the Octagon Earthworks, and the Wright Earthworks still remain today and continue to amaze archeologists with their history.

For Nature Lovers

Dawes Arboretum

Dawes Arboretum
Naturally beautiful scenery

This park has tons of beautiful landscapes. The Garden Gateway is a common favorite because of its beauty. It includes several gardens, including a Japanese garden that’s artistically designed with rocks, gravel, a pond, flowing water, trees, shrubs, and a stone path over a reflecting pool. In the Woodlands, you can hike along a trail of native plants such as buttonbush, foamflower, wild geranium, large-flower trillium, and Jack-In-The-Pulpit. And, on the Arboretum’s annual Maple Sugar Days, maple trees line the trail and provide sap that’s made into maple syrup. The Red Barn Area includes meadows, a pond, a boardwalk, wetland, wooded areas, and a rustic barn. It provides a learning experience about a variety of natural landscapes, and it has a picnic area where you can stop for lunch. And there’s much more. It’s a great place to go for a scenic walk or take photos.

You can also take boats or kayaks out on the river, or even hike through nature trails.
