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!

With only a little less than a month left before the start of the fall semester (is it just me, or has this been the quickest summer yet?!), it's textbook-buying season again. And while it may not seem like there's much to it, a lot must go into consideration when buying textbooks for the upcoming semester.So that being said, take note of the tips below before buying your textbooks this summer!

1.) Opt for earlier rather than later.

Depending on where you order/buy your textbooks, you never know how long it might take for certain books to ship and arrive. That said, err on the side of caution and minimize the risk of not receiving a book on time -- get it done on the earlier side. Ordering about a month before the semester starts should give you plenty of time.

2.) Ask around...

Before buying a book for a class you know friends or roommates may have already taken, be sure to ask around. If they have the book, they may sell it to you for a much more reasonable price, or they may even let you have it for free. It doesn't hurt to ask!

3.) Pay attention to detail...

If your school or professor provides an ISBN number with their list of required texts, that most likely means that they want you to have a specific version or edition for the class. That being said, pay attention to ISBN numbers before getting your books. If you use sites like Amazon (like I do), make it even easier on yourself and copy and paste the ISBN right into the search bar. You'll be taken directly to the exact version of the book you need.

4.) Know where to shop.

Chances are your school will send out emails and flyers from the campus bookstore, all likely urging you to buy your required texts there. However, while that may seem like a convenient option, your books will probably be full price there, and you'll only be able to return them at the end of the semester for a handful of change. You will find books for a much more reasonable price elsewhere, and you might even be able to return them when you're done. For example, buying used books on Amazon has always worked great for me. I find my required texts quickly, get them for a great deal, and I'm usually able to return them directly to Amazon when I'm done using them in exchange for store credit.Good luck, happy shopping, and be sure to enjoy these last few weeks of summer!What are your tried and true textbook-buying strategies?
