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’s One Thing You Wish You Knew Before Starting College?

Dylan - I think I wish I knew how much hard work it really is. Coming from high school, you have an impression of how hard it is or how long it takes to complete an assignment, but in college you’re given assignments that require you to put in a lot of hard work.

Ella - Your professors aren’t going to email you and say, “Hey I saw you missed an assignment, are you okay?” It’s your job to stay on top of your work and make sure you are turning everything in on time. On the flipside, I think trying to grow a relationship with your professors if possible is important. If you do need help or a little bit of leniency, having a relationship with professors is really helpful.

Aiyana - Cherish your time off. It’s really rare that you get leisure time, and it’s easy to indulge yourself in all of the work you have to do, all of your clubs and student organizations and activities, it can be exhausting. Don’t spread yourself too thin, and really cherish your time off.  

Alec - Once classes start, you’re kind of just thrown in. Your teachers don’t skip a beat, they don’t treat you like a baby. You’re there to get a degree and take their class. You have due dates and you’re expected to have your work done. It’s not like a high school teacher who checks in everyday - if you don’t get your work done, you don’t and it reflects in your grades.  

Rebecca - That it’s short lived, I can’t believe i'm graduating next year. Make the most of it!

Bailey - Definitely that the first people you meet may be your friends all four years, but they also might not be. Once you get into your major you might start seeing them less, people transfer schools, people move rooms. Know that everyone is still kinda going their own way.

Michelle - Be more open to meeting new people, don’t just stick with your same two friends. Be open to meeting others and having a good time.

Cheyenne - Don’t stress so much, everything you do is not as hard as they say. Your teachers are there for you if you reach out, and there are a ton of resources on campus that are willing to help you.

Erika - It probably goes without saying. but college is harder than high school. I didn’t have to try super hard in high school, so I didn’t develop great time management habits and things that have caused extra challenges in college that I likely wouldn't have run into if i had developed those habits in high school. Even if you took a lot of hard classes in high school, college is different.
