  1. Hey @cbolger the plugin is available and works with your existing background videos unlike other plugins being offered. I'll send you a private message now, thanks. Andrew
  2. Hi @DOMINIK TARABANSKI I'll send you a message now. My plugin works exactly the same as how you'd normally use Squarespace to add a background video - you just paste your Vimeo video link in the section background edit menu. The actual plugin is just a one-time copy and paste. You don't need to fiddle around with anything or edit code yourself. And once added, it works with every Vimeo background video you add on your site automatically.
  3. Hi @QAAM yes of course. I'll send you a private message to give you all the details. Andrew
  4. Hey @adameus, yes I did. It works with Brine family templates and is £40. If your template is not part of the Brine family, let me know what template you're using and I'll give you quote for adapting the plugin to work with your template. I've got your email address as you bought the 7.1 version (thank you) so I'll send you an email now. Andrew
  5. Hi @Margiada56 you're talking about the category and tag filters you can apply to summary blocks. Previously it was an open text field so you could comma separate multiple tags/categories, but now it's a dropdown so you can only select one. I agree that this is a severe limitation in the latest update and hope that Squarespace see sense that it is really useful to be able to filter by multiple categories/tags. Andrew
  6. Hey, I thought I'd follow up with some more findings. I think Squarespace might have fixed this issue I described because I don't notice the blank space when scrolling back up a website after a page refresh. On a side not, it turns out you can use the Squarespace imageLoader function in 7.1, so you can control when Squarespace fetches an image file. This has been very useful for a client's website that has a huge gallery with lots of images. As you scroll down, Squarespace loads the image file as you get to it. So it momentarily displays a blank space followed by a glitchy (not-smooth) image reveal. I've overwritten this to lazy-load the images 500px before they appear on screen, meaning the image has already loaded by the time you scroll to it, and the fade-in animation is nice and smooth. I am going to develop this as a plugin because I think it's a really useful feature. Let me know if you'd be interested, thanks. Andrew
  7. For the benefit of anyone else reading this, a quick update since my last post announcing the plugin... I've had quite a lot of interest through the forum here, Youtube video and my existing clients, so I've written instructions and packaged up the plugin for sale at £40, which I think is good value. Customers who've already purchased the plugin, like Adam who posted above, have been super happy. I am offering support to anyone having issues. The only issue so far has been with a Vimeo video that wasn't set to allow embedding. I'm currently in the process of setting up a Squarespace store to sell the plugin as a digital product, but until then I'm communicating with people via email, sending an invoice for payment via Paypal or bank transfer, then sending the instructions and plugin file. So if you'd like to purchase the plugin you can send me a private message on the forum here or submit a contact enquiry via my website - https://www.digitalfreelancer.co.uk/ Any questions, let me know, thanks. Andrew
  8. Hi @joelygoe, if you would like the plugin, you can either send me a private message here on the forum or go to my website https://www.digitalfreelancer.co.uk/ and submit an enquiry. We can then finalise the details by email. Thanks, Andrew
  9. Hey guys, I've developed a fix for this issue. There is indeed a Squarespace issue that stops background videos from playing on mobile. My fix for this issue doesn't require you to do anything differently, you still paste your video URL into the background video field as normal. Here's a demo - I think this fix will provide real value to Squarespace website owners, so I'm going to start offering it as a plugin for £40, but before I start writing instructions and setting up the product I just wanted to gauge interest. I will also be offering it to my existing Squarespace clients. The plugin has some stipulations: You must be using Squarespace 7.1 (but if there's enough interest I'll adapt it to work on 7.0 as well) You must have the business plan or higher to be able to paste the custom code for this fix You must be using a paid Vimeo account, not Youtube. Most people should be doing this anyway because Youtube videos have youtube stuff all over them resulting in a poor user experience, and a paid Vimeo account is required for background videos On iOS there's a feature that stops autoplay videos if the device is in low-power mode. Please let me know if you're interested, thanks! Andrew Moore Digital Freelancer & Squarespace Expert of 6+ years
  10. Hi, I've developed a fix for this issue. There is indeed a Squarespace issue that stops background videos from playing on mobile. It's nothing to do with connection speed etc - I'm at home with good wifi and only Squarespace websites are not showing autoplaying background videos.

  12. Hi folks, in Squarespace 7.1 they've added a feature which loads the background image of a section only once you've scrolled to it. Generally, I really praise this move from Squarespace in order to make sites faster, but it is annoying when you reload a page you've already scrolled half-way down, and when you scroll up the images don't appear until the top of the screen is about 20% from the top of the image, so you're left with a blank area for the majority of the time scrolling through that section. I used to be able to manipulate the imagesLoaded function in 7.0, but I don't know how to trigger Squarespace getting the image src in 7.1. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks, Andrew
  13. Folks, this is the answer that currently works for me, as provided by @Octopus. <script> document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', init); window.addEventListener('mercury:load', init); function init(){ // javscript goes here } </script> Andrew -Digital Freelancer
  14. Hi, the only way I can see (I'd love it if someone can suggest a better way) is to disable the ajax loading. A massive thank you to Jason Barone for pointing this out on Twitter: Add this to code injection footer. <script>window.Template.Constants.AJAXLOADER = false;</script> Hope that helps. It helped me! Although I do miss the quick, smooth page loading Andrew Squarespace Expert
  15. Hi Vinko, you cannot use a standard text block, it must be markdown or a code block. The synatx is < del > and < / del >. Please remove the spaces inside the chevrons, I added these so that the synatx would show in this comment.
