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.

Rush Creek Village
A interesting way to get a taste of Worthington would be to take a tour through the Rush Creek Village. Each home is designed for the lifestyle of every homeowner, but never compromising the architectural integrity of the designer. Frank Lloyd Wright was the main inspiration to this community. The construction of the first house started in 1956 by designer Theodore van Fossen, who was the mastermind behind all of Rush Creek Village.
All of the design falls under “organic architecture,” which means all houses take shape from the natural land around them. This makes it look like the house was part of the landscape.
