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.

Accelerator Training
Program

Does your work in a municipal office include communications? If so, you might be thinking:

I want to protect my team from risk if something goes wrong.
I’m tired of being in react mode when another story hits the news.
I just don’t have the resources or the time to get on top of communications.
I really care about the residents here. I wish there was a way to show it better.

Communicating with residents can be messy, complicated and risky, especially when resources and budgets are tight.

We've got you covered.

Be proactive and plan ahead
Avoid pitfalls and misinformation
Choose the right tactics to engage citizens
Make sure your messages are well-timed, clear and effective

Who should attend
the Accelerator

Training Program?

Accelerator is designed to help people at the front lines of communication, whether you have a full-time communications coordinator or communications is one item on a long list shared between 1 or 2 people juggling multiple priorities. 

MMAA members can earn 10 PD credits at every workshop.

We are thrilled to be partnering with the Manitoba Municipal Administrators' Association. They are offering PD credits for each session that you attend.
