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.


Successful exit from gastropub investments

Investment manager Downing LLP  announced the successful exit from two freehold gastropub investments managed by Upham Group.

Both gastropubs – The Navigator in Swanwick and The Winning Post in Winkfield - have been acquired by Upham Group.

Downing first partnered with Upham Group in October 2015 and subsequently refurbished the gastropub locations, both of which also have letting rooms. Upham Group itself has 15 pubs located across Hampshire, Berkshire, Sussex and Wiltshire. Additionally, all of Upham’s pubs and inns feature a range of fine real ales brewed by Upham’s own brewery, also based in Hampshire.  

Downing has developed deep sector knowledge of the licensed sector, with over £100 million currently invested in pub assets. It’s this track record that helped secure the exit deal with Upham, which also delivered a great outcome for Downing investors.

Steven Kenee, Investment Director at Downing, commented: “It has been excellent working with Upham over the past four years. The deep experience of the management team has helped drive the business to become the fastest growing pub company in the South of England.

“Despite the headwinds facing the high street, a strong operator such as Upham still presents an exciting opportunity for investors and I’m confident their unique pub locations will continue to thrive.”

David Butcher, Upham Group, added: “Working with Downing allowed us to release value in our estate and acquire further sites to aid our growth programme. They were quick to the mark and have been easy to deal with since.”
