  1. The simplest way is you add the text to the image in photoshop or some other program, save the whole thing as an image and then when it is on your site, replacing the original image, the whole thing becomes clickable without the need for any code.
  2. I have that on my site, not on the homepage but it would be easy to do. Use a blog summary block and also use the category filter. Give your latest post the category "latest" and the summary block will display it. Put the actual blog in the unlinked section of your site, and your summary block will in effect become the blog. https://myrandomviews.com/storysummary
  3. Those are anchor links and how they work depends on your site and template.
  4. You set the design of the block for list, and if you have an image enlarge it. You can set the text for large as well. This will make each excerpt wider than a blog page post in a list. If you want a post in a summary block to be full bleed, set the block for carousel with only one item per row, aspect ratio 3:2 standard. Number of items per block still can be at 30 with blocks chained together on the same page which allows as many posts as you want on that page with a bit of category filtering per block.
  5. That doesn't require a plug in, it is one of the choices you have with a summary block layout, list the posts as opposed to displaying them as a wall or grid. . Its a very simple change to make in design settings of the block. I can adjust the image size, make it bigger or smaller as well as the aspect ratio. I have far more control over a summary block than I do the actual blog page display. https://myrandomviews.com/stories/lessons
  6. Unfortunately there is not, no code solution either. The summary block method, and there are styling plugins for those as well, is the only workaround available at the moment.
  7. If you use an actual summary block instead of the blog listing page, which is not really a summary, you can have 40 entries and then chain blocks together on the same page using category filters. I have a blog summary page with 80 posts on it. Summary blocks can be designed all kinds of ways with code unlike an actual blog listing page. When you use blog summary blocks the actual blog goes into the unlinked section of your site. To use create a new blank page add a section then click insert point and add a block. I use 7.0 but my page should give you a look at what they can do for you: h
  8. For me personally, I would prefer to have the apartment photos the first thing I see when I click learn more on the home page. For example when I click Penthouse and Terrace, the banner image is fine, but under that I would put just the line of text The Perfect Couples Getaway in bold larger type, the slideshow immeadiately below those words and the description of the apartment below the slideshow. Let the images sell the place first, the old saying is sell the sizzle then the steak and the images have sizzle.
  9. With most website hosting companies going to super scrolling (one page like) mobile driven tempate designs, the menu in a menu function is going to go by the wayside. Squarespace simply is ahead of the soon to happen trend. One major website company puts it this way to their clients: Unfortunately, mega menus don't work this way. They display too many irrelevant items at once, which creates a lot of visual distractions. I can't say I totally agree due to the fact i have a number ofnav folders with drop down list of links on my own site, but like others here I will have to deal with
  10. In order to guide you to the proper template and platform 7.0 or 7.1, and the proper billing plan, what is prompting this change? An update in design? Easier changes you want t make yourself? Etc?
  11. By default yes, but you can change the published date in the 7.1 blog post settings. I did that when I moved from a shared public blog site to my own personal site. I had some sixty posts that I moved/copied using cut and paste.
  12. I was under the assumption that the question was how to have a button that leads to the latest blog post not to a summary block. I happen to have four or five ways to get to my blog posts both direcly or in a list. If the question is to have a button that goes directly to the latest post without being part of a list or without changing the url, then one way to do that is always give the latest post the category "latest", and filter the button link to that category. No url changing is required but the cat would have to be added to the latest post and removed from any others. So if I put the
  13. This help article explains it: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206537197-Changing-site-ownership
  14. FYI the best way to do this depends on what template they were using, if it is a 7.0 you can effectively build a new one using the same account log in and config log in, and then switch templates. If it is the 7.1 template (and there really is only one) then you would have to redesign the site as is, because there is no change template option with 7.1. Starting from scratch and transferring ownership would have domain and billing changes to be made as well. I would be glad to offer more information if needed.
  15. I found that it helps the search engines to find a site if you help it to do so. Get your friends and family to go to it, the more hits you make yourself the more you get from organic searches. It isn't just about alt text and wordy titles. It is about content, images, having an about page, things that make your site interesting to humans also make it "interesting" to search engines. I built two sites full of images, and it helped push them to the top of the search engine pages really fast when I asked my co-members of a 12,000 member Facebook photography group (Sony Digital Photography) to v
