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.

The Texas Chapter of the National Coalition for Public School Options released the following statement at the conclusion of the 88th legislative session:

While the Texas legislative session may have ended without a virtual learning bill, schools operating under Senate Bill 15 (which is sunsets this year) can continue to operate thanks to a waiver made by Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath.

This waiver allows the schools to continue to enroll and serve grades k-12 for two more years. Thanks to the advocacy of Texas families during this session and over the years, policymakers understood the importance of protecting virtual public school options and made this waiver a priority. But, the waiver does not allow these schools to operate permanently; we still need the legislature to pass legislation creating a statutory, regulatory and fiscal framework for virtual schools.

PSO sent a letter to Governor Abbott thanking him for the waiver and to ask him to continue prioritizing a long-term solution for virtual learning in the Lone Star State.
