  1. To make the oldest blog post show up first, you need to change the published dates. The date itself doesn't have to be displayed if you don't want it to. This is what I have done with many of my posts, especially if they are part one, part two etc. You edit the original post to change the date published. I posted a link to display a group of posts where I changed the date to get them in the order I wanted. https://myrandomviews.com/stories/lessons
  2. Tucows also does url fowarding so if they host your domain it can be pointed to a specific url such as a blog page.
  3. I believe you have to target the summary block but so far I have found no tutorial on how to do this for a summary block. Will keep looking, would like to do this myself for my site to see how it looks.
  4. Ussing CSS is is really the best way, if you want it to look close as possible to a 7.0 landing page
  5. Do you want to sort posts for visitors by category? I do that with my blog using the archive function as well as drop down menus and summary blocks with the posts grouped by category. This took a bit of time, I used a second blog page with each post being a category of posts from blog one. Take a look and you shoul be able to see what I mean. https://myrandomviews.com/storyarchive
  6. What would visitors be searching for? A particular bottle of wine? A cetain type? I ask becasue you could consider using an archive block and categorizing your posts. Similiar to what I have done with my posts here: https://myrandomviews.com/storyarchive
  7. I have not had issues with my images looking soft or dark or other unattractive things. The questions are what image file type do you upload? What is the average size of the file? My originals are .jpg and at least 2mg in size.
  8. Site URL: https://www.myrandomviews.com/ There seems to be an issue with my mobile view, not the simulation on laptop but on the actual android phone. When viewing a blog post and scrolling down, the bottom of the page overlaps the top of the next one or vice versa, just puts this strange string of text or part of an image at the bottom of the page. If I turn the phone to horizontal view and back it sometimes goes away.
  9. Spark_plugin thanks for the look and critique I have a unique logo, a couple actually, one the camera moves across the text. that I made using Squarespaces logo maker. They don't agree with my active page underline code. if I use the logo the line shifts down to the bottom of the header. I may be able to fix that however. I reduced the images drop shadow a bit from 8px to 5px. I also got rid of the blog text justify code, and just went back to left justify for all my blog posts. I didn't like the way the text spaced itself.
  10. The original post is over ten months old. My dashboard is fine. Older expired sites may still have something present in a dashboard if any part of it such as a domain or email service is still active.
  11. Not really, best you can do is watermark them. I am not a fan of that.
  12. Site URL: https://www.myrandomviews.com/ I have made an extensive redesign, now using two blog pages, one with the actual blog stories/posts the other is a summary of the first. I decided to put a summary block in a blog post and use multiple posts instead of stringing summary blocks on a single page. This was to fix some strange technical problems that popped up, thumbnail images would not load, items would not show up in programming mode, due to a high number of posts per block. I reduced that number per block by half. This fixed those issues (mostly). I also decided to group all my posts by subject, and made use of the archive drop down. What was to be a fix actually improved the look and navigation over the original design. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks. Derrick my random views
  13. NIce use of a York Family template. Simple, friendly, easy to get around and engaging site.
  14. You might not have the proper block id, I can't say for sure.
  15. The op's link is to a site using Native which is a 7.0 template. MarkDuplock, which page is your blog page? We can inspect it and see if there is a problem.
  16. I prefer to host my own images with my own easy to manage image software, not host them on squarespace. If I delete one from a websit blog post or out of a gallery it will eventually be deleted off their servers. I can upload as many as I want as long as an individual image is 20mg or less in size. I don't have to delete one out of a "library" in order to post another one like with some other website hosting services I have used, and the picture will size itself depending on the device it is being viewed on. It has worked well for me for six years now.
  17. You need to put in exactly this: <style> all those characters, when you type the first one a second one will make itself and you paste the code between them. Here is an example <style> .view-item .meta { display: none; } </style>
  18. When code is placed in the advanced header of a page, it needs this tag <style> at both ends.
  19. Open config, then pages, then choose the blog page, then you need to scroll down until you see the small menu block that says manage posts pop up, then click the pencil icon next to it that says edit section.
  20. Getting my first nice comment posted on a blog, my personal site, and some nice form submission. comments as well. Hitting 80,000 yearly page views for the site I built for the community which I live in the summer.
  21. Choose a gallery page, then go to design, site styes, scroll down to gallery options.
  22. There is a huge misconception of how squarespace hosts image files, it is not like hosting them on dropbox or google drive or any image hosting service, I suggest you read this to learn more as to why you cannot manage them yourself the typical way: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205812748-Image-and-file-URLs-in-Squarespace
  23. I am having similiar issues with my site, strange carry-over on the bottom of a page, but not all of them.
  24. Your drop down boxes might look better with a bit of drop shadow. I have that on mine, its made with avenue, a 7.0 template. Here is the code I used in custom CSS, color and shadow can be easily adjusted. #topNav nav .folder-collection .subnav { background: #fff !important;box-shadow: 5px 5px 15px rgba(0,0,0,0.25) } The hex color code #fff is white and you can change the color if you want changing the code. Here is the Hex code finder I use: https://htmlcolorcodes.com/ Derrick https://www.myrandomviews.com/
