    I love the new Summary Block. And I would like to use it to let a visitor browse through excerpts of my blogposts before they dive into the posts themselves - especially the carousel option is extremely suitable for that. Bummer: when you try to implement this feature the number of blogposts that you can show is limited to 30. Would anyone now if the 30-items-limit is overridable with some piece of code that could be injected somewhere? I know that if you use blog excerpts in the regular way, the number of posts to be displayed is unlimited. But the way in which you can display them is not. And with the new Summary Block you have so many nice options for customisation... I also understand that I could implement different Summary Blocks, one after the other, each set up to cover a different time period of a blog. But it would be so much better to a have one nice, clean carousel (for instance) to cover all the posts. And since the Summary Block is especially set up to deal with blogs (among others), one would expect to have an 'unlimited option' in the first place, no :-)...? Anyway: I don't know anything about code except how to copy and paste it, so if somebody would have a solution: a step by step guide for implementing it would be extremely welcome :-) :-)... Thanks a bunch in advance!

    Update: I posted a new tutorial on hiding links in navbar here, in case you are interested I see that a lot of people have the same kind of problem and the root of it is that there isn't any effective way to have a bilingual SS6 site. So if you want to make a bilingual site what are your options? the Google Translator, which is no option for me this method by SS, no an option either After a lot of research and brainstorming I came up with the conclusion that you can: Create a blog/page in your primary language of choice (X- for me that's GREEK VERSION) Duplicate each page/blog(for blogs must be done manually), modify its language (to Y- eg ENGLISH VERSION) and move them to the unlinked pages section, so their links won't be in the nav-bar In "Top Navigation" add the pages' links that you want to appear in the navigation bar eg About page, Contact etc in both languages Then with a simple CSS code you can hide the X language's pages from the Y language's blog and vice versa. So your in your English blog will appear only English pages, info in the nav bar, in Greek only Greek etc. You got it! You can put on your sidebar 2 flags or something like this and you can switch between your X-Y language blogs/pages So, all you need is that damn code. So, the code is below and it's the kind answer by: @rwilson and is given here !

    I have a gallery grid and am wanting to find a way of being able to hover over each thumbnail and it shows an id number for each picture. It shows the ID number on the rollover when I click and the lightbox enlarges the image, but ideally would like it to show on the gallery thumbnails also using hover. I'm not looking for anything fancy, just two words of text to show over each picture when hovering. I have NO experience with CSS (but am happy to give it a try!) so if anyone can help, please make it as simple as you can :) Could you also please let me know if the code would ALL go into the Style section of CSS. It would have been great if there was somewhere we could give a title to the images and it would show up perhaps under each photo in the grid, but unfortunately I've been told this isn't possible at the moment.I've been trying to work this out for 3 days now and would be very grateful for any help at all.Thanks for your time.

    Can each Block in the layout engine have its own background colour? This would be a big way to customize the look of the templates. This has been discussed various times on here but I don’t think I’ve seen a definitive simple answer – in particular there’s been a lot of discussion across various threads that block IDs YUI seem to change so targeting a block ID with color doesn’t seem to work permanently. Colored blocks are pretty standard now on major websites as a way of structuring different types of content. See the examples below:

    Bedford: Changing the banner height?

    I’ve been trying to change the banner/header height in the Bedford template by inserting this in the CSS editor but it’s not yielding any results. #collection-xxxxx #banner-thumbnail-wrapper { height: 50px; } Does anyone have any suggestions on what else can be done? I would also like to be able to edit the height of the banner when it’s a slideshow. Thanks!

    I want my website to be bilingual, in French and English. I am currently using the Devlin template. What are my options to make make this bilingual? I am aware that there is a Google translator option but I cannot see what the end result will be like. I can’t find examples. I can translate all my pages on my own but I need a button in the navigation bar that allows me to switch between both English and French on every page. Is this possible to add within a template? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Specifically, I'm using Aviator and on my services page I have a lot of entries that are service name with explanations underneath. I'd like the explanations to be hidden initially so visitors only see the list of services. Then they would have the option to expand the explanations under the services they want to read more about. For example Service Name (visitor would click name to open text underneath)[explanatory text here would remain hidden until user clicks service name, then expand to be read] Is there any way to do this?

    I am using the Five template and have set up a folder style navigation. Is it possible to get the top level navigation (the folder) to go to the first sub-page when clicked? Currently there is no way to get it to go anywhere. In Squarespace 5 you could set a page to be the default page of the folder when the folder was clicked. When you rollover the folder it behaves like a link so from a usability stand point it should link to something. If I can’t get it to link, can I remove the “looks like a link” behaviors (e.g. rollover color change, mouse pointer change) just on the folders? I am also having trouble with the drop-downs disappearing when I rollover them to click. This is another reason I want to be able to click the folders – when I am testing I can’t get to my subfolders!

    I'm want to use Google Analytics to track conversions from my Squarespace 6 site - those conversions being a completed form on the site - but cannot find a way to include the code in the submission button or the form submitted page. Does anyone know of a workaround to allow me to track completed forms?

    I am trying to achieve a full width background color behind a code block on my website. The code block has two divs - one for the background color, and one for the content.The CSS I am using at the moment is as follows: #Bio { background-color: #e5e5e5; margin-left: -600px; margin-right: -600px; } #BioWrapper { margin: 0 auto; padding: 40px 600px; } So basically I am playing around with margins and padding to get the effect, but it then creates extra space to the right, causing unwanted scrolling. This is the page I am working on: http://blussh.com.au/about/The grey area with the heading 'heids' is where I am trying to achieve this full width background color. I am hoping there is an easy fix to my CSS - can anyone help?Thank you!

    As brought up here: http://answers.squarespace.com/questions/8532/folder-navigation-top-folder-doesnt-link-to-anything-can-i-get-it-to-or-remove-link-behavior Folders should have a click through link so that it can be clicked to go to another page. It should work the same as a regular folder in that it should still have an active colour if that has been set so that if you are on a page that is held within that folder or the page the folder link is connected to the "active color" works. Please vote up if you agree. Another possible option is to make a special kind of page that works like a folder in that anything placed under it shows up in navigation as a drop down but it is also a normal page and can have content on it. That would save having to create a special no linked page that works with the pass through. Maybe have a check box or such for people that want it to just act like a normal Folder.

    Adding a video background?

    I am trying to make a landing page in a similar style to this one:http://gravitymovie.warnerbros.com/ I am wondering if there are any methods y’all have found for creating compelling looping video backgrounds with Squarespace. I am currently using the Frontrow template and would love to loop video in the background. Any help would be hugely appreciated! -Jimmy

    I love the new Summary Block carousel. I'm curious if it's possible to "autoplay" the carousel much like galleries can do. I know this is possible using Developer Platform galleries, but would love to be able to use with Block Carousels.

    Is it possible to create a gallery slideshow that fades between the images, rather than just changing to the next image? It looks a bit jerky how it is currently working.

    Hi there, does anyone know how to customize the speed of the slideshow (that is how many seconds each image will be shown) which is running when I upload more than one image in the "imagery" section ? thanks.
