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.
In Champaign County, Ohio, Urbana entertains locals and visitors with museums, outdoor activities, stores, and other sites. In 1805, the town’s founder named it after the word “Urbanity.” While it might sound like he named the town for being an urban area, it was actually a small town until around 1880 when three railroads were built nearby. In fact, the word “Urbanity” has more than one definition. It could refer either to a suave, courteous, and refined attitude, or it could refer to urban life. Given that the town wasn’t always an urban area, the founder’s true thoughts about the name “Urbana” remain a mystery.
