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.

What is Realtor Care Day?

Realtor Care Day, on June 6th, is your way to give back to the community. Every year during the month of June, also known as National Homeownership Month, Columbus REALTORS® hold a day of service in order to give back to the communities in which they live and work.

Beginning in 2005, REALTOR® Care Day is responsible for over $443,000 worth of community improvements and hundreds of hours of volunteering to communities in the central Ohio region. The main project of 2018 REALTOR® Care Day will be focused in the Milo-Grogan neighborhood near Downtown Columbus. Additionally, area realty associations are planning projects all over the larger region.

How did Realtor Care Day begin?

The annual day of community service began in 2005 with just one service project. Since then, the project continues to multiply. Last year 604 members of the community worked on 45 separate community service projects. Together, these projects contributed $75,000 worth of improvements. It is truly noteworthy how much can be accomplished in a single day with the hard work of REALTORS®, their associates, friends, family and other community members.

The primary project is in Milo-Grogan this year, but past projects improved areas all over the city such as the neighborhoods of South Linden, University District, Joyce & Woodward Avenues, the King Lincoln District, Framingham Village on Innis Road on Columbus’s North Side; as well as the Children’s Hospital residential community, the Hilltop area, Franklinton, Reeb-Hosack, and Hungarian Village on Columbus’s South Side.

REALTOR® Care Day is funded by the Columbus REALTORS® Foundation. Other industry trade or area realty associations can apply for matching funds up to $500 each in order to help fund their service projects for the annual event.

These significant financial contributions make the annual REALTOR® Care Day event possible, along with the donations of supplies, tools, services, and food from REALTORS®,  associates and local businesses.

In 2014, the REALTOR® Care Day Weiler Grant was created to recognize Area Realty Association projects exemplary of the principles of REALTOR® Care Day. Every year, one or two of these associations are rewarded with an additional $500 of funding that may be used toward their REALTOR® Care Day project during the following annual event.
