  1. You get a refund if you cancel a site within two weeks of paying to activate it. That's it. So a refund might not happen if you switch before November's renewal. 

    Website refund policy

    Standard plans

    We automatically issue a full refund when you cancel an annual website subscription within the subscription’s first 14 days. Otherwise, your website is set to auto-renew, and we follow these refund policies:

    • We don't offer refunds for annual plans after 14 days following the first payment.
    • We don't offer refunds for monthly plans.
    • We don't offer refunds for renewal payments. Fifteen days before an annual subscription renews, we'll send an email letting you know you're scheduled for a payment. If you don’t want your site to renew automatically, you can disable auto-renew.

    My Custom CSS  skills are coming up short. I have tried to write code to give image thumbnails in an Avenue index page a nice drop shadow, but I have had no sucess so far. I did mange to make them disappear once, but I didn't really care much for that effect. Any of my coding expert friends here that can help me out?  Thanks in advance. The page is titled pictures. 


  3. 7.1 may seem like a death move only if you believe you have no choice but to use it. But that is not the case.  I still use 7.0 because I like it better than 7.1, simple as that. I don't judge 7.1, which is one template, as good or bad. It is just that 7.0 with its multiple template families including Brine, which in the opinion of many is the best group of template designs anywhere, offers more to me than 7.1. So I stick with it. I have played with 7.1 so that I can be of assistance to those who want to use it, particularly new first time builders, which 7.1 seems to be easier for them to build on. That is the way I look at it. Squarespace like many other compaines that sell a product, including car makers, or operating system makers introduce new things that are not necessarily improvements over the older things.  Was Windows 8 an improvement over XP?  Was Windows 8 an insult to what Wndows was before, with XP? Some thought so but it has worked out in the long run. It will with Squarespace too and they offer support for both 7.0 and 7.1, let us not overlook that. 

  4. Yes it is possible:

    Point a subdomain to a different Squarespace site

    When you point a subdomain from one Squarespace site to another, Squarespace handles it like a third-party domain. This means you’ll use DNS records to connect it to the second site.

    Tip: Instead of pointing a subdomain within Squarespace, you may want to move the root domain and then create a unique subdomain on the second site.
    1. Start with the site you’re pointing from. Open Advanced DNS settings for the root domain that you’ll add the subdomain to.
    2. From the Add Presets menu, select Subdomain. Enter the new subdomain name, such as blog or store, then click Add.
    3. Go to the second site where the subdomain will point. In the Domains panel, click Use a Domain I Own.
    4. Enter the full subdomain. For example, blog.yourdomain.com.
    5. Click Connect From Provider.
    6. Select Other as the domain provider, then click Connect Domain.
    7. From the DNS Settings panel that appears, copy the unique code from the Host column.
    8. Return to the first site’s Advanced Settings. Scroll down to Custom Records to create a new record. 
    9. From the Record drop-down menu, select CNAME
    10. In the Host field, paste the unique code.
    11. In the Data field, enter verify.squarespace.com
    12. Click Add, then click Save at the top of the page to add the record.
    13. Return to the second site. In the Domains panel, disable the WWW prefix for the subdomain.
    14. Test the connection by entering the subdomain in an incognito window.


  5. As a blogger my site has a title, author's name, "table" of contents. My about page is the back page of my website like the back page of a book  jacket cover. It gives my viewers more personal information about me. Knowing me might compel them to read more of my stories. 

     I think the about pages I have built for others do the same thing, they add to the story the site is telling, with words images or both. 

  6. Every new SS site build comes with a two week trial. No upfront credit card needed. After two weeks you would need to make a payment but the site would still not be live until you move your domain. Nothing takes place to the original site at all, it still operates until the domain is repointed or transferred to Squarespace.

  7. You can add a section to a portfolio page which is also the home page, add a content link block inside that section,  choose your blog as the content. The blog title will be in the box.  You will need to adjust the text in that block with site styles to make the font bigger. This also makes it take  one click to access  the blog not two. I think this much simpler than my post above using a summary block, which you may still like to use.
