How do I add a recommendation?

To add a new restaurant recommendation, click on the “Add recommendation” button at the top right-hand corner in the feed. Enter the name of the restaurant and select from the drop-down menu. You are now ready to write your recommendation.

I can't find a restaurant I want to recommend from the Search. What to do?

Try to add the location (city) in the search after the name of the restaurant. If the restaurant still doesn't appear, it is because the restaurant search is provided by a third operator and is limited to businesses registered on Google. We are working on this in order to get all the hidden spots on the World of Mouth map too.

How do I reset my password?

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.
