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.

College can be a very exciting time—a new place, new friends, more work, maybe a few parties—but it can also be lonely, especially for freshmen or transfer students. Even if it’s their second, third, fourth, or even fifth year back at school, they’ll probably still find themselves feeling a little homesick throughout the school year. 

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or friend, chances are that you know someone in college whom you miss and want to let know that you’re thinking about them. Sending a care package is a great way to surprise your favorite undergrad and brighten their week (even during finals season!). 

Want to send something to their dorm but don’t know what? Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered with a list of care-package ideas that are perfect for college students. 

A Break From the Dining Hall: Your Guide to Food-Filled Care Packages

Everyone jokes about the freshman-fifteenfreshmen-fifteen, but here’s what we should really be warning incoming college students about—getting sick of the dining hall. Even at colleges where there’s a wide variety of dining options, it’s only a matter of time before students get tired of eating the same things all of the time. Give your college student the chance to switch things up with a care package featuring different types of food.

While some students might love starting the day with waffles, pancakes, french toast, bacon, and eggs, others just aren’t up for that many carbs first thing in the morning. Alternatively, they might not have time before class to have a sit-down breakfast.
