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.

As founders of The Collective St. Pete, we are beyond impressed with our experience with Barkett Realty! EJ was fantastic to work with and always responsive to our plethora of questions we had along the way. Opening up a physical space, and starting a commercial lease was new territory for us, EJ and his team were incredibly patient and supportive along the way. The Barkett Realty team made sure we stayed on track and demonstrated poise and care during challenging negotiations. They showed us how much they truly care about their clients’ needs and made our peace of mind a priority. We hope to work with them in the future and would highly recommend them to manage any type of commercial lease or real estate asset.

Our experiences with Barkett Realty in the commercial and residential areas have been excellent. The appraisal the firm did for my orthodontic office building led to a sale. Later Barkett Realty assigned Ashley Frazier to appraise a home we were renting and considering buying. The insights from the appraisal alerted us to deficiencies in the home's infrastructure helping us avoid a purchase. Barkett Realty then had Ms. Frazier guide us through the purchase of land for a new home, a construction contract, and permanent financing. The firm's services through their realtor, Ashley, helped us stay on budget while guiding us through change orders and logistical issues. The result was a "custom home" that saved us several hundred thousand dollars if we had purchased the rental property. Throughout our relationships with Barkett Realty, we experienced the personal care, creativity, and professional experience of their staff as they made our interests their priority. We recommend them highly for your commercial and residential needs.
