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, link test for rtb, 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.

How to Install a Large Format Tile?

We break it all down for you from the prep to the setting.


Properly preparing for your large format install is imperative to ensure your job goes to plan.

What does this involve? Properly preparing the substrate. Any dips or humps in your substrate can lead to lippage, ruining your install and that large tile.


Thin-set is used to bond the tile to the substrate. The best to use? Medium-bed mortar accounts for irregularities

 Mortar Mixing

Troweling Thinset

Full and complete mortar coverage is imperative. A proper setting bed will aid in eliminating voids.


Back Buttering 

The last step to assist in eliminating voids: back buttering your titles. Apply a thin layer of thine-set on the back of your tile before setting. This helps fill any voids.
