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.

Since 1946, the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) has been a godsend for millions of food insecure families. Unfortunately, thanks to the policy's antiquated definition of "school", approximately 347,000* virtual public school students are not receiving free lunch benefits, even if they would have qualified based on their family's income. Food insecure families are being penalized because they chose an innovative educational option for their child, as the 1946 law requires meals to be served only at physical school buildings. As a result, full-time virtual students are not receiving the same nutrition benefits as their brick and mortar peers.

The provision was changed during the pandemic through waivers for brick and mortar students learning online, and we believe it should be changed permanently to extend the benefit to full-time virtual public school students. Congress and the U.S. Department of Agriculture must act to ensure no child that qualifies for NSLP goes without a proper lunch.
