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!

As a follow up to our last post on whether you should buy or rent your textbooks, we've decided to write an updated blog post on how you can effectively bargain for books as you start your new back-to-school semester. As you're getting settled into your new dorms, it's natural to feel a little overwhelmed and apprehensive. This may be your first time managing finances and learning to budget so that your money lasts you a while. You'll start noticing how quickly money goes; $2.00 for a Redbull here and $5.00 for a quick Subway lunch there. You'll want to run out with your new roommate to grab those last minute dorm decorations and stock your mini-fridge with your favorite Chobani and soda. It may not seem like you're spending a lot on these things at first but they quickly add up. Then there's your textbooks.If you're like me, you may be the type of student to wait until the ultimate last minute to buy your textbooks. Maybe it's because you're caught up with all of your other school preparations, or maybe you just really don't want to part with that extra $200 (or more) smackeroos you could be spending on a new clothes or activities. If you think you don't need to buy your textbooks, you're wrong. Even if you've agreed to share a textbook with a friend for one class (which makes you depend on them to do your assignments) you still are left without textbooks for the rest of your classes, and no, you can't "just wing it". Bite the bullet and buy your books at the beginning of the semester so you don't fall behind. You'll be more engaged in class lectures and understand more of the assignments. If you're worried about shelling out the bones to get your books, fear not. We've found a few places you can snag your books for cheap.

‍Campusbooks.com- At Campusbooks.com, you can get the best prices for both new and used textbooks to buy or rent. You can even sell back your textbooks through the site as well. The site also has apps for your smartphones that allow you to find and snag the best textbook deals near you! Purchase through your phone and pick them up at your local bookstore for ease and convenience. And, if you want to do something good, you can donate your textbooks to a good cause! The site is organized by classes and subjects so you can easily and quickly search for your book's edition and name. Sign up for price alerts and be notified when the lowest rates of your book are available. You can even track your order right through the site.

‍Chegg.com- This is one of the most popular used websites and I've even benefited from it myself. What I like about Chegg is that you can rent your textbooks from them and they ship within a few days... for half the price! Sometimes you even get a "cereal box treasure" along with your books such as orange play dough, a pen and even a bracelet! One student reported buying three books for a total of $76; a price that would nearly triple in an on-campus bookstore. Once you're done with them you can easily ship them back in the same packaging they came in (save it!) with ease. If you need extra time with your book, you can request an extension and send it back when you're through. Chegg has resources to help you schedule and plan your day, seek help for certain subjects, rent textbooks and e-books, as well as sell your books back for money. They follow a 21 day guarantee for hard copy textbooks and a 14 day guarantee for e-textbooks. Chegg has a great cheap rate for books and almost always has everything you're looking for. They also work for a good cause, planting a tree for every book purchased and rented! They also have a "Chegg For Good" blog where they travel around the world for great causes! If you're really into going green and helping out your environment, Chegg is an excellent source to check out.

‍Slugbooks.com-I've never used this site myself, but I do like the look and feel of their website. Immediately upon arriving, I noticed that the bottom allows you to navigate for books depending on your state or providence. This is a really helpful way to find books that are being used at universities near you. They also have really handy apps for college campus living such as College Cooking Guide and College Checklists for both PC and mobile devices. They allow you to easily compare prices of their offered books and the other online and in-store book stores conveniently. The site promises to save you a hefty deal on your book bundles and offers you a competitive rate for all other book stores.

‍Amazon.com- As someone who's borderline obsessed with Amazon (I bought the two day free shipping deal and have been addicted since) I can't help but to recommend buying or renting textbooks from this site. Firstly, you can search and buy your textbook in a hard copy at the lowest price being offered. Amazon will show your price options in red, showing how much it is to buy it and how much it would be to rent it. If you have two day free shipping, you can buy your books on a Monday and have them by Tuesday or Wednesday, at the latest. Even if you don't have free two day shipping, your books can still arrive in a two day time frame, as Amazon is great about only offering products from certified sellers. If you're not into lugging around textbooks you can also purchase an e-book from the kindle store. As someone who's just recently experienced the marvelous matters that is "The Kindle", this would definitely be my choice to buy books. My campus bookstore didn't sell the books on-site, making students drive upwards of 45 minutes away to purchase or order offline. With e-books, I can show up to class, realize I forgot my textbook, and purchase it right there on my Kindle. Crisis adverted! Kindle books are also usually a bit cheaper than normal textbooks, as there's no printing or shipping involved. The Kindle is small and light and easy to carry around. As long as it's charged, you're good to go! (Also see, Nook).If you need your books FAST- If you need your textbooks that very day, you're kind of up the creek without a paddle. The best option in this case is either to borrow the course materials from a friend for that class, or head to your college bookstore. The problem with this is that your college bookstore is most likely going to cost you a pretty penny, due to convenience and accessibility. The good news it that you'll have your books (if they're still in stock) that day and can head to class prepared.There's tons of other sites where you can buy and bargain for textbooks without breaking the bank. If you're interested in finding some more, you can look at BookByte, BookRenter, ValoreBooks, AbeBooks, and more.
