In this post, I share two methods for changing the color (or any style) of top navigation items in Squarespace. One is a quick solution if you are targeting the first or last item. The other method is for targeting any item in your top navigation (third, fourth, etc.).
Using Primary and Secondary navigation in Brine family Squarespace templates allows you to center your logo for a balanced header design, but causes an awkward gap on mobile view. Here’s how to remove that space.
The Newsletter Block continues to be the bane of my existence. Here’s another way to make it look even better and elevate the design of your site. Simply add a bit of Custom CSS so the Newsletter Button font matches the other buttons on your website.
Most websites I create include a Newsletter Block on at least one page. One tweak that Squarespace needs is the ability to change the size of the post-submit message. I’d like the Thank You text to be readable, instead of tiny. Here’s the workaround…
The Announcement Bar in Squarespace is super handy. I’ve used it in the past for special offers, to highlight products, or to share news. But what if you want the announcement bar to persist instead of giving site visitors the option to close it?
The Squarespace Pacific template has a large Gallery slideshow on the homepage, inserted as a Gallery Collection into the Index page. It’s beautiful on desktop, but on mobile view the photos can look cramped. Here’s how to stack those images on mobile.
I remember the first website I created in Squarespace. It was for a company who wanted their mailing address on the contact page. Easy, right? Except that I couldn’t get the spacing between lines to look right! Every time I pressed return, I got a paragraph break with extra space between the lines…
The Squarespace Galapagos theme is a great theme for quickly getting an online store up and running. What it misses in styling options, it makes up for with its minimalist simplicity. However, sometimes it’s nice to change a thing or two to make a template your own.
I found a Cover Page layout that worked, but in its Style Panel it looked like I was stuck with a logo that was much too small. Fortunately, there is a workaround and the Cover Page turned out beautifully with a nice, large logo. Here’s how…
I tried out Linktree for my Instagram account and it was so ugly. You can upgrade to the paid account and make styling changes, but I’m frugal. I can’t justify shelling out $6 a month for something I could do myself. So I figured out how to make my own alternative to Linktree and I’ll share those steps with you here.
The Grid Gallery Block is one of four Squarespace Gallery Block options. It adds a gallery of images and videos to a page or blog post in a symmetrical grid. On mobile, the gallery displays as a grid two columns wide. But what if you want the images to stack…
In some Squarespace templates (like the Brine family), it’s super easy to add your Social Media icons to the header navigation since it’s a built-in function of the template. But in other template families like York, Avenue, Bedford, and Pacific, it requires a bit of a workaround.
I've been intrigued with the debate over using WordPress vs. Squarespace for blogs and decided to look into it myself. I've built and maintained blogs in WordPress in the past, so I decided to play around with a blog site in Squarespace.
My site uses the Bedford Squarespace template which is a great fit for my style and content. But there are a few features that don't work for me. Chief among these is the banner image on individual blog posts. For Bedford, and a few other themes, when you view a blog post at its direct URL, its post thumbnail image displays as a banner.
I recently added a Membership option for my clients, to allow me to stay on retainer for small updates to their Squarespace websites. I wanted to set a recurring payment, but unfortunately Squarespace doesn't offer a built-in option. Their suggestion is to use MoonClerk which looks like a lovely solution, except that their lowest price point is $15/month. Which seems much too high for my small volume. UPDATE: Squarespace now offers subscriptions, but you have to pay for their more expensive Commerce plan.
