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.

Gahanna is one of the best hometowns in Ohio (I swear I’m not biased), along with the added perk of being the herb capital of the state. This town is a suburb of Columbus so there is no shortage of adventures to take if you live in this area. If you are looking for a home for sale in Gahanna, keep these town highlights in mind.

More about Herbs

Believe it or not, being the herb capital of Ohio is a pretty huge deal. There is a gorgeous garden, education center, and local shops all about herbs!

First, let’s focus on the Geroux Herb Garden (as pictured above). So within the garden, there are little sections specifically focusing on different types of herbs. For example, there is medicinal, culinary, scented and more!

For everyone 21 and over, this is something to definitely take into consideration. It is called the Gahanna Herbal Cocktail Trail. So this is how it works: you pick up a “passport” at Gahanna Visitor Center. Then you visit places on the trail; it is a mix of breweries, restaurants, and things of that nature and gets a drink. Once you get your drink, get your passport stamped! After your six stamps, go back to the visitor center and you’ll receive a free branded cocktail glass.

The education center is right at the beginning of the cocktail trail. It gives the true history of how Gahanna became the herb capital. The admission is low cost and it allows everyone to get a true feel for the city.

Wyandotte Winery

If you’re ever looking to take a break from the madness of life, this is the place to go. This is the oldest winery in Central Ohio and they are owned by the Coolidge family. All wines and foods are made on site. They offer a variety event (not just wine tasting, I promise). Wyandotte offers tours and dinners. We can’t forget to mention that they sell a variety of pastries!

If you’re not sure what type of wines you’re into, the staff there is more than welcome to help you find your palette, and maybe get you out of your comfort zone. This is a place to definitely check out, and by the way, it is on the Herbal Cocktail Trail!  

Swisher Creek Alpaca Farm

Swisher Creek is an amazing place to see on a nice afternoon. They offer free tours by appointment or if by chance they are open. There is a gift shop filled with handmade items and things imported from Peru. This is a great place for all ages to enjoy, and who wouldn’t want to enjoy petting adorable animals?

There is a reason Gahanna won “best hometown in Ohio”. There are a lot of really cool things to do and explore. Be sure to check it out and when you’re visiting, contact a HER, REALTORS® today!
