    derricksrandomviews reacted to paul2009 in can I merge two templates in squarespace?   
    If you are using Squarespace 7.0, each template family is unique. You cannot "merge" features.
    If you are using Squarespace 7.1, there's just one template, with many different "starting points" to show off the different features - but they are all the same.
    To understand which version you are using, check this guide: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005308187-What-s-my-site-s-version-and-template-

    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from strat in They did not just removed parallax scrolling in 7.1 did they?   
    Future new sites and rebuilds , I will certainly look at 7.1 but right now my customers like 7.0 for a number of features that they are used to to and appreciate. Parallax scrolling is one of them.

    Simple to the point, style of the site doesn't overwhelm the images. I noticed parallax scrolling is off. Having that on could add a little something "shiny" to your site .

    A business plan will have unlimited page count and custom page coding. You can also start a new personal plan as well, that will make the page count unlimited, but it does not allow custom page coding, which yours and my older personal plan allows. It is a trade off in  other words.

    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from smokycourtz in Code for removing image crop on Mobile View (goal: maintaining Desktop View) in Mojave Template   
    If you want both to look like desktop then you need to encourage your viewers to use landscape view in mobile, turn the phone. Put a note like best viewed  horizontally, I viewed it that way and there is no image cropping. You can also go into settings and disable mobile view completely. But if you do that and your viewers look at it vertically on a phone then the content is going to be quite small.

    Add to Home > Design > Custom CSS
    body:not(.homepage) img.Header-branding-logo { filter: invert(1); -webkit-filter: invert(1); } body:not(.homepage) img.Mobile-bar-branding-logo { filter: invert(1); -webkit-filter: invert(1); } I see mobile header logo is white on homepage. Do you want to fix?

    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from logorado in Feedback on a portfolio site for a freelance logo designer   
    I think the design is clean, and simple, and that is good, it forces your logos to take center stage. Exactly what the site should do. I also like the nav underline effect. I use it as well on my Avenue site.

    @derricksrandomviews I got rid of the Read More button. And added an animated scroll down gif instead. So much better, and makes sense. Now the visitor will scroll down right away and find the variety of content. Thank you!
  15. Thanks
    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from TheUnapologeticTraveler in Feedback on Visual Design and Experience   
    The Read More button, with a super scroll template, like Brine or any 7.1 site, that button in the first section, tends to take people away from rest of the "first" page of your site. I think you need something that tells folks to scroll down. Your site has a lot of good stuff down there that folks may miss when they first visit. I know they can get back there but its best to make the first page just that, the first page.

    Nice looking site!
    One thing I found. I prefer that a website doesn't open a new window/tab when I click on a link. The VIEW button on the home page does this.

    This is a forum for Squarespace users. Both sites linked above are build on  Wordpress, so unless you are building one on Squarespace we will not be much help here due to the fact they are two different platforms.

    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from ebhutch in Summary block increase from 10   
    If you are asking how you can get more than 30 summary items on a single page you do it using filters. You simply add a second summary block on the same page as the first, and use the filter feature to add any items beyond the first 30 using categories. You can give each item in the first block  the category 1-30 and the second group the category 31-60 or whatever name you want. You can hide the categories so they do not show on the page. You can layout the blocks as a wall or grid, as well as other options. It works out very well. I have over 80 summary items on one page. This requires no code.

    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from djm in They did not just removed parallax scrolling in 7.1 did they?   
    Still, 7.0 is very good. The Brine Template is good, one of the best. Nothing says you have to use 7.1. Me, I was in Telecom software development for years, a beta tester for EA and .1 was never my favorite thing to use no matter if it was software or Firmware. I don't think 7.1 is really 8.0 if you know what I mean. That will come at some point I am sure.

    derricksrandomviews got a reaction from Margiada56 in Is there a way to transfer blog posts from 7.0 to 7.1?   
    Copy and paste, that is what I did when I moved from a community blogger's site to my own website. That being said, 7.1 is one template built to look very much like the very successful Brine Family of templates with a streamed  down configuration platform.

    Thank you very much!
    I just played with your suggestion and tried to add something I've seen previously and came up with this code
     
    /* Summary font customization */
    .summary-title-link {
        font-family: myriad-pro;
        font-size: 23px;
        font-style: italic;
        color: #EB5C92;
    }
     
    ...and this came out - exactly as I wanted - perfect 🙂

    Change the font name to what you want to use and the size, it can't be a custom font however, not with this particular piece of  code. This goes into custom CSS.
    .summary-title-link {
        font-family: proxima-nova, serif;
       font-size: 16px;
    }
