How to write a "rich text" in database so it displays to users?

How do I write a rich text in database? There’s a ‘text’ field but no ‘rich text’ field, which will be more suitable in my situation right now. Anyway to go about this?

First, you need a rich text editor input. There are plenty of plug-ins that give you RTE entry functions.

The data itself just gets stored in a “text” datatype field. Rich text is just text with more text in it to define your bolding, centering, etc.

I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m incorrect on any of this.

I have the RTE plug-in installed, works good if a user wants to write on it, but then I wish it could have the same “flexibility” like adding links and uploading photos through it’s field in database.
