  1. Usually you will get quicker response here if you post the url of your site.
  2. It seems to be Clarkson. https://www.typewolf.com/clarkson
  3. Sounds like you could use an archive block with categories. I use one of those. You can see it here. I also use drop down menus on the Nav block as well. https://myrandomviews.com/storysummary
  4. Charlotte is using the Squarespace 7.0 Wexley template. I have two sites built on the same one. I choose them due to the fact they are optimized, so to speak, for photographers without the use of custom css. What template are you using? This information is necessary to help answer your request because 7.0 templates are very different from each other and from 7.1, with different cropping/gallery options. Here is one of my Wexley Sites: https://christinegregoryphotography.com/
  5. Are the thumbnails in a gallery/portfolio page? Project page? If a project you edit the page then click the image icon to open the gallery panel then the edit image is on the right. Technically you edit the image, not the thumbnail of the image.
  6. First thing is to see if you can find help here. Second is to verify the built in domain of your site and see if it takes you to the home page. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205810488-Reactivating-a-site
  7. Cut and paste blog content from one site to the other. That is the really the only way. Some, have tried a wordpress export-import option but I can't tell you how sucessful that has been. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205814028?platform=v6&websiteId=5d1263f4c6594f00012aea2d
  8. Well, considering you have approximately four seconds to grab a viewer's attention, then yes above the fold is important, and so is the cover over the fold, something that will make them turn the page. my random views
  9. 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.
  10. That worked terrifically well. Thank you Dan! I did modify it just a bit.
  11. Site URL: https://www.myrandomviews.com/ 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. https://myrandomviews.com/views-images
  12. If using chrome, try going to the site from an incognito window, this is most likly related to being logged into your account while viewing your site.
  13. I think it must be linked in your browser cache, I can't make the build in domain show up no matter what I do to try to make it happen.
  14. Is there a particular page where this happens? It always had your custom domain in the address bar everywhere I looked.
  15. 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.
  16. Custom fonts don' work using site styles. You have to use CSS code to set H1, H2, and paragraphs either the same font or individualy and there are other tweaks you can do as well. https://www.kayleighnoele.com/blog/how-to-upload-a-custom-font-to-squarespace
  17. Only if the second domain is handled by a third party such as Tucows , then you set that domain for url forwarding to the page you want , you would not point it to the Squarespace site or transfer it.
  18. This information may be helpful to you, there is a section on selling fonts thru your own website: https://ivetriedthat.com/how-to-sell-your-font/
  19. Change link color? Font and size? Remove underline? Some are done thru design site styles others need code. The best thing to do is just post how you want to change things on your site.
  20. The jobs page is not in your index page like the other pages. You simply need to drag it into the index/home page. Make sure it connects to the vertical line on the left like the other pages. Once the page is in the righ place a # sign will show up in the address bar when viewing that page.
  21. 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. Start with the site you’re pointing from. Open Advanced DNS settings for the root domain that you’ll add the subdomain to. From the Add Presets menu, select Subdomain. Enter the new subdomain name, such as blog or store, then click Add. Go to the second site where the subdomain will point. In the Domains panel, click Use a Domain I Own. Enter the full subdomain. For example, blog.yourdomain.com. Click Connect From Provider. Select Other as the domain provider, then click Connect Domain. From the DNS Settings panel that appears, copy the unique code from the Host column. Return to the first site’s Advanced Settings. Scroll down to Custom Records to create a new record. From the Record drop-down menu, select CNAME. In the Host field, paste the unique code. In the Data field, enter verify.squarespace.com Click Add, then click Save at the top of the page to add the record. Return to the second site. In the Domains panel, disable the WWW prefix for the subdomain. Test the connection by entering the subdomain in an incognito window.
  22. It takes time for deleted content to drop off search engines. You could consider redirecting it to your home page, or any other active page on your site, in settings. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815308-URL-redirects
  23. 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.
