What’s a Rich Text element?

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.

Ohio wasn’t one of the first thirteen colonies, but that doesn’t stop Findlay from stealing the title “Flag City.” The story started with John Cooke, one of the Sons of the American Revolution, who asked door-to-door if neighbors and businesses would raise flags on Flag Day. His project lasted until 1974, when the Women’s Division of the Chamber of Commerce asked residents to raise their flags again and campaigned for Findlay to be officially named as Flag City.

When entering Findlay from highway route I-75, you could still see the welcome bridge that reads “Welcome to Findlay” on one side and “Flag City USA” on the other. However, Findlay entertains its citizens with more than an American history lesson. The city offers many other interesting museums, parks, restaurants and other places where you can entertain yourself. Here are some of the top sites to see to get acquainted with Findlay.
