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.

A comedy podcast series made by Eric Simon of The Broke Agent, Caravan Confessions brings in stories of the best (and the worst) times in real estate agents’ daily lives on the job. Eric Simon states on his website that he began his Broke Agent brand and podcast to fill a void he perceived in media about real estate, which he believed “lacked edge, authenticity, and most importantly humor.” On Caravan Confessions he interviews friends and colleagues, collecting their favorite memories of goofy clients and absurd situations over their years of work.
Simon is a classically charismatic real estate agent who forms an easy, natural chemistry with his guests. Unfortunately, the most recent episode was posted over two years ago, so we likely won’t be seeing much more of Confessions any time soon. Still, Soundcloud has an archive of the podcast’s 12 hour-long episodes that are sure to brighten your day and make you think, “that has totally happened to me.” You can learn more about Eric and his brand over on The Broke Agent website where he posts even more humorous real estate-based content or click here to stream his podcast over Soundcloud.
