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.

While pride of ownership is one aspect of homeownership, its effect on your wallet is often a critical factor in deciding to take the plunge. If you're considering buying property for the first time, there are a few things you should consider to make sure you're making the right choice. The points below can help guide you.

Reasons to Buy

First, think about why you want to buy property in the first place. Do you want to own a home you can live in and call your own or is investing your primary object? What about a combination of the two? Some people purchase a house knowing that while they plan to live in it initially, they will rent it out or sell it shortly. Real estate can be a brilliant place to park your money for investment, giving you a steady stream of passive income. It can be hard to know where to find rental properties because your priorities will differ from a house you buy for you and your family, but you can review online to choose the right place for this purpose. Thinking about your reason for making the purchase can help guide you to an appropriate one.

Your Budget

To some extent, you are limited by the size of your budget, but there are still ways that you can be more flexible. If you can get more money together for a down payment, more options may be open to you. If you live in an area with high housing costs, is a nearby community where they are lower? You could even consider moving to another state or buying property in another state, particularly if you are looking for investment real estate.

Your Renovation Willingness

One thing that can either keep costs down or rocket them into the stratosphere, depending on precisely what kind of work you're looking at, is how willing you are to do renovations. House flipping exists because people can make a profit on it, but if you don't know much about home renovation, you could be getting in over your head if you aren't careful. If you've fallen in love with a house that you want to live in, but some things about it aren’t quite right, think about whether you are willing to put in the money and possibly the time to make it right or if you'd instead move into a place that needs very little work.

Your Priorities

Make a list of your priorities and what you will and won't compromise on. This is particularly important if you're buying a place you want to live in. What kind of space do you need? What about the layout? Do you have children, or do you plan to have children while living in the house? Is the perfect home or the perfect neighborhood more critical to you? What kind of tenants do you want to attract if you're looking for an investment property? For example, the type of housing students look for can vary significantly from what a family is after.
