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.

Gahanna’s History and Future
Gahanna Has a Bright Outlook
Gahanna was founded along Big Walnut Creek in 1849 by John Clark, who took the name from the Algonquian word for “three into one” as an homage to the three creeks that join into one just outside of the city borders.
Gahanna’s 12.6 square miles boast 750 acres of parkland, including Friendship, Hannah, and Woodside Green Parks. With a population in excess of 36,000, Gahanna is experiencing a period of economic rejuvenation characterized by its revitalization of the “Olde Gahanna” downtown sector.
Rob Matney states that “Gahanna offers the small town atmosphere, where everyone is friendly and you feel as one big happy family.” Events occurring throughout the year contribute to the welcoming atmosphere of Gahanna and are celebrations of the strong community values prized by residents.
Opportunities to experience Gahanna’s culture and interact with the local community are everywhere. The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival, Taste of Gahanna, Arts in the Alley, the Creepside Halloween celebration, frequent farmers’ markets, and many more events reflect the high quality lifestyle and vibrant culture of Gahanna. And, as the Herb Capital of Ohio, expect to hear about Gahanna’s annual Herb Day, a time for local vendors and artists to bring together their community in order to celebrate all things herbal.
“It’s so good to be a part of a community, not just by living here, but by being a contributing member, a business owner, and a servant to the local area. I love the northeast area, my family loves Gahanna and we are always asking ourselves how we may better the community”, says Rob Matney. Matney is eager for the opportunity to continue Gahanna’s legacy of excellence through his work with HER, REALTORS®.
Louise Potter, Regional Vice President of the Northeast Regional Office and Broker of Record for HER, REALTORS® says, “With the tools, technology, and support services HER offers, Rob, is well-positioned to assist consumers with their housing needs throughout Franklin County and the surrounding communities in Ohio.”
Potter considers Matney’s “dedication, experience, and enthusiasm a tremendous asset in helping clients with their home buying and selling needs." His background in banking, wealth management, and sales have helped sculpt his abilities in the real estate market, making Matney the expert he is today.

What Makes Gahanna Such a Great Community?
Gahanna is a great place to open a business, raise a family, or spend the day. In addition to the new HER, REALTORS® office, there are a number of businesses and shops in Gahanna worth stopping by--not to mention the parks and other attractions.
Gahanna’s LEGOland Discovery Center has a cinema, workshop, play area, and more to help children create and discover through Legos. Encouraging families to play and interact with the various rooms and play areas together, LEGOland fosters an atmosphere of fun and is engaging for the whole family.
While LEGOland is a zone primarily for children, they do host an Adult Night once a month where adults who love legos can come together and explore the space.
As the oldest winery in central Ohio, a trip to Wyandotte Winery is a must for wine-lovers in Gahanna. Featuring a range of flavors, the winery has something for everyone to enjoy, including their famous wine cakes, available for online purchase.

A collaboration between Gahanna Parks & Recreation, the Columbus Metropolitan Library, Gahanna students, and the Gahanna Rotary led to the development of the Gahanna Story Trail. The Story Trail helps visitors learn about environmental stewardship through an interactive storytelling environment.
Located in Friendship Park, the Story Trail encourages outdoor recreation and highlights literacy. A part of the Gahanna Library’s Summer Reading Program, the Story Trail is a great community feature that children and adults can benefit from.
As the Herb Capital of Ohio, Gahanna naturally has a big focus on herbs. From herb businesses to herb cocktails at restaurants, the Herb Trail will take you through the world of herbs as represented by Gahanna.
The Herb Trail showcases culinary and shopping venues, gardens and eco-learning opportunities, and health and wellness centered around herbs and herbal medicine. With visits to the Herb Center and Goosefoot Garden, classes at Shepherd’s Corner, meals at 101 Beer Kitchen and Arepazo Tapas & Wine, and plenty of cookies at Mrs. Turbo's Cookies, the Herb Trail is a complete sensory experience.
Commemorate your experience with herb infused soaps and bath products, herbal teas, books on herbs, or bundles of dried herbs from the Ohio Herb Center’s gift shop!
Volunteering plays a big role in Gahanna, where there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer throughout the community. Volunteer on the golf course as a greeter or ranger, at the library or education center, with the rotary, or one of the many other places Gahanna residents build up their community.
