APANO is posting candidate responses to inform our members in advance of the May 17th primary election. Ballots are already in the mail, and if you have not received yours, please click here.

APANO reached out and gave equal opportunity to candidates in several races that we identified as important for Asian and Pacific Islanders. A list of candidates who submitted responses by our deadline are listed below. The candidate responses are posted as-is, within our word count. APANO makes no endorsements and this information is educational only.

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.
