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.

Highbanks Metro Parks

Highbanks Metro Park was originally named after its 100-foot-high shale bluff, creating numerous revines around the park. Across the 1,200 acres, there are ten different trails ranging in difficulty. Trails range from grass and gravel to pavement and all cover a different part of the park. There is also access to the Olentangy River, where you can canoe or kayak. This is a great place to get your work out in, have a picnic, plan out a day camp or to take some time to sight see.
