  2. Dear Squarespace team, Full-width sliding images with the ability to place the same or different text and buttons on each image is absolutely a feature we need. I get this request on literally almost every site I build. I believe it is a feature that would get used millions of times over. I love what you have built and the more I get used to 7.1, I can see it's advantages. Adding this feature would make 7.1 an absolute no-brainer. Please acknowledge our collective desire to have this implemented as soon as possible. Thank you for all you do!

  3. HERE'S THE SOLUTION: In Google Analytics create a new property. In the new property setup panel there's a link "Show Advanced Options" at the bottom. In Advanced Options there's an option "Create a Universal Analytics property". Using this option will give you the option to either create both a GA4 and a UA id in which case it creates 2 properties and links them or you can just create a single UA id.

  5. With regards to your question about not showing up in search results, here are my thoughts. It is normal practice for Google to index a new site in approx. 3-4 weeks after launching. So yes it is still early days. That said, every site owner wants their site to show up on page 1 results. Google ranks/rates all websites on approximately 200 signals to determine where the site will be placed in search results. The reason for all these signals is because Google continually fine-tunes its search results. Google has the reputation as a search engine that gives fast relevant results. I

  6. I contacted support and they advised that at this stage they have no update when their system will accept the new Google Analytics 4 (GA4) measurement ID. It is disappointing because clients who don't have a business or eCommerce plan don't have any option to add the GA4 tag in. Support suggest clients add a UA tag in but this disregards the fact GA4 is based on a global tag and even Google recommends during setup not to use the UA tag. Understand Google has made the change, but at the very least Squarespace should allow code injection until they have a fix for this as GA4 is n

    Social Sharing on 7.1

    I can't believe you need to use code to create share buttons and also the fact that it's not included in the basic package. Is there a way to submit a request to squarespace for them to change this?? it's 2020, absolutely crazy for this to be considered "extra" and for it to have to be done through code....

  8. (Updated: SS 7.1) Some custom code (CSS) to change color Navigation Link Navigation Hover Link Navigation Active Link >> 92 Templates Navigation Custom Font Notes Add code to Home > Design > Custom CSS The code is based on demo at squarespace.com/templates, so they may not work for some websites or navigation with dropdown If the code doesn't work, try adding !important to after, eg: color: #f1f2f3 !important; If you have any questions/found issues, just comment below or send me a private message. Thanks. Avenue Template

  9. Definitely following this thread. I feel this is my biggest frustration with Squarespace. Especially seeing there is a lot of trial and error with image sizing so could result in multiple uploads. I've been looking to see if they have "vote this feature" in anywhere like other platforms do. Because I would press is a million times!

  10. Same here! Working on a client website and decided to try Squarespace versus my Wordpress resource. Uploaded a ton of FPOS and went to clean out the image library and learned that you can't delete imported images. WTF? Who in the world thought this was a good idea? HUGE FAIL! Without that function I will never use SquareSpace for another client website again. This client now has a TON of images that will never be used.

  11. Wow! Come on Squarespace! I've been a big supporter, but it REALLY sucks to commit to the 7.1 platform and then find out that some of these basics are not supported. Please don't be such a growing disappointment.

  12. I don't know if this has been a recent fix but I was able to get the UK date format by going to Settings > Language & Region and choosing "English (United Kingdom)" as my language. Now in the overview they display as dd/mm/yy and when you click through it shows as number then month e.g. 6 May. It's still annoying that the formats are different in the overview to in the post (and both of those are different to summary blocks).

  14. Hey! I'm working on a site and I played around the options (newest version of Squarespace) a lot. This uploaded the "dummy-images" on the site every time and now when browsing uploaded images it is hard to find the relevant pics. How do I manage the images uploaded to the site? I'd really like to remove all of the unused images. Screenshot from the media browser below.

  15. you would think with all the people asking for it they would implement item specific shipping. It's probably one of the most common requests I see in these forums and they're losing a lot of business because of it. I know several people who have left squarespace because of that and I'm looking at different options myself. Disappointing to say the least

  17. Why are normal and basic e-commerce store features missing? (The elephant in the room?) Here's a list of complaints I have. My basic question is why isn't Squarespace trying to offer features to seriously compete with Shopify and others to expand their business? Why are the following missing? There's no option to sort/filter products by tags, availabilty, sales, color, or anything else. There's no built in option for product reviews. You can't expect everyone to figure out coding and troubleshooting every single time they want a basic, ubiquitous store feature. The

  18. What's even more confounding, is that the controls are there. They simply don't work as yet. Social sharing is such an integral part of marketing for most of us, and it would seem to me that implementing this function should have been at the top of the list of things-to-do for the Squarespace team.

  19. I can see that the image search option seems to have changed a bit since yesterday, looks new and I was super excited to see if you can simply delete images but it still appears to not have that feature, seems super odd to have provided that area a design refresh and leave out a widely requested item such as deleting image?......I feel like when you click on the 3 dots to the right, instead of image info, it would be great to be able to rename, duplicate and/or delete an image.

  20. Why oh why is there no way to delete uploaded images and why is there no way to organise them into folders? It seems like such a basic necessity for managing a website. Does anyone know if there is a (simple) file manger in the works? This is by far my biggest request for Squarespace as a user.

  21. Same thing with me building templates! I've started to play around.. and god I do not want the play around images in there! They'd think "geez, what is this" I had contacted them before my comment and they said they get lots of requests but they're adding it to the list and passing it on. Makes you question how they've gone this long without that feature.. mind boggling! Hopefully it's our Christmas treat!

  22. Yes. This is super important. I just built a website for a client which I started by duplicating a site I did for another client. I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT hand it off with the first client's custom photography saved in the imported images. So I have to build the whole site over from scratch??? OMG. Hours and hours of redundant work are ahead. This is not ok. #featurerequest

  23. Just adding to this thread. I'm in the same position - selling very different items of size and weight. Would love if Squarespace could help out with selecting product-specific shipping. To give the developers an example of how this is difficult for vendors, particularly at this time: Australia Post became rather unreliable during lockdown in Melbourne. So it was important to me to be able to arrange a free click and collect option for those who were able to (within the 5km lockdown zone). during a print sale. I also think that if it's possible, this is a more environmentally-friendl

  26. Agree- this is definity something that needs attention. I sell product (taxable in my state) as well as a non taxable service (such as a workshop) that does not get taxed. My only option is to refund the sales tax to those who purchase a non taxable workshop-not ideal! Please add a feature to make this possible! Thank you!

  27. Previously, you had the option of using an ugly, visible reCAPTCHA on your Newsletter Block, or you could simply not have one. However, Squarespace have now taken the unilateral decision to add an invisible reCAPTCHA to every Newsletter Block - whether you want one or not. This means that if you use a Newsletter Block you'll now see this ugly disclaimer message, in addition to the disclaimer message that you may have added yourself. The message is that required by Google as part of the terms & conditions, and explains to users that Google cookies will now be used. I don’t like t

  29. I've run into a bit of an issue with hiding individual collection pages in Squarespace 7.1. Normally, by clicking on the settings for a page, you are able to enable or disable that page. However with the new system of "Portfolio Collections" that page disable option does not exist for individual portfolio project pages. I may be mistaken, but as far as I can tell, there is no way to hide these pages (screenshots attached for reference). This is incredibly troubling as you cannot create drafts of projects, nor if you are duplicating other projects, they will be live with duplicate content

    Social Sharing on 7.1

    I'm really super disappointed in Squarespace for not including share buttons. I'm a big fan of Squarespace, but seeing that the platform lacks such a basic need, make me doubtful.

  35. Here's how I did it: 1. Name and enter your link: ex: #about 2. Add your anchor: code block: <p id="about"></p> 3. Smooth our scroll: Open custom css and add: html { scroll-behavior: smooth; } Site is still private for a client but I can link to it as proof once it's live.

  36. Yes. It's a bit arbitrary why portfolio's in 7.1 can't be password protected yet pages can. A entirely plausible usage-case is you have a body of work, not just a single project, that requires it be hidden. This ought to be addressed.

    Adding anchor links in 7.1

    Another way to set anchor links: Set a code block above the point on the site you want to jump at (e.g. above a Headline, …). Fill the code block with an empty div: <div id="your-anchor-name"></div> Then set the link to jump to the anchor like this: /pagename/#your-anchor-link Hope that helps

  38. Hi there, Having fun with Squarespace 7.1 for the first time. Is there a way to generate a number of unique discount codes in batch? It is important for us to generate unique discount codes for our members. Creating them one by one is looooooooooong. So we're looking for a way to generate them in batches, and ideally export them from Squarespace for easier distribution. Alternatively, we're open to import coupons if this is also possible. Patrick

  39. Site URL: https://www.survivaltechniques.co.uk/shop Hello! I am moving my shop over to Squarespace from BigCartel and can't find a way to register the correct shipping for my products. I sell a range of paintings, prints and canvas bags which have a big range of shipping prices, ie a painting is going to cost a lot more to send than an A3 print. I can only find an option to set shipping rates by weight or flat rate, neither of which work as customers often buy a combination of products, which each need to be packaged separately. Is there a way I can set a shipping rate per product

Most of my goods require a box for shipping, but I recently started selling stickers. Stickers are flat, and don't need to be shipped in a box.

  43. Has anyone who has previously used Squarespace and was familiar with the design process tried making a new, from scratch site using 7.1? All of the Design customization is GONE! There's a super convoluted way to go in and customize in settings, but you still have way less control than before — not to mention the templated font combinations are TERRIBLE. Is there any way to go back and use the old Squarespace??! Is any one else as angry about this as I am? It's like Squarespace decided they wanted to make the design process baby boomer-friendly, since... yanno, that is who is designi

  45. Lack of this basic feature is becoming a deal breaker for me. I will have hundreds of images and variations of them as my site grows. I need to be able to sift through them quickly and cull the ones no longer needed. As things stand, that is becoming more and more cumbersome because a simple delete feature does not exist. I have just sent a message to their "Help" team. I suggest others do the same. Squeaky wheel gets the grease. Go here to do so: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=64337

    Food Items and Sales Tax

    Just spoke with someone on chat (very good experience, by the way) and this is still not possible. The whole point of providing the ability to capture taxes separately is to make my job easier when filing with my state's taxation department. If I have to figure out which items were incorrectly priced due to non-taxability, I've lost that convenience and I might as well *not* separate taxes from my product prices. Please, developers, add this feature. Wix + Weebly handles this properly! A simple checkbox on each product would suffice. I have to admit that I'm amazed this site/product/

Is there any other reason for the inability to delete content that is uploaded? Just for my situation, I'm an artist, I just need one site which I have, but there is plenty of uploading and removing, as work gets older and/or you make newer better work. So there will be plenty of iterations. There are a couple ways to think about this. - I have uploaded content that is created by me, and I'm not saying anything will happen to it probably, but I therefore have no c
