  1. derricksrandomviews's post in Adding navigation breadcrumbs on Blog pages was marked as the answer   
  2. derricksrandomviews's post in How to Locate a Deleted Page was marked as the answer   
    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. 
  3. derricksrandomviews's post in Changing the navigation menu position in the header? was marked as the answer   
    This code will put a hamburger up in the right hand corner, when opened the menu will be vertical. 
    @media screen and (max-width: 5000px) {
      /* Display burger icon at all widths and align right
      .header .header-burger {
        display: flex;
        order: 2 !important;
      /* Make burger menu visible at all widths */  
      .header--menu-open .header-menu {
        opacity: 1;
        visibility: visible;
      /* Center logo in mobile device */
      .header-title {
        text-align: left !important;
      /* Hide primary navigation menu */ 
      .header .header-title-nav-wrapper .header-nav {
        display: none;
  4. derricksrandomviews's post in Display portfolio sub pages in navigation menu dropdown was marked as the answer   
    Any page you don't want to show up on the Nav bar, move to the unlinked section of your site. It is still active but can't been seen unless a link takes the viewer there. My blog page is in the unlinked section of my site and links in a folder on my Nav bar are how viewers get to many posts there.  In your case your drop down menu, which is created in the linked section so it is on the nav bar and contains the links,  will take viewers to any page or sub page you make a link to. 
  5. derricksrandomviews's post in Is there a blog post limit? was marked as the answer   
    There is not one for the actual blog page. Blog summary blocks have a limit of 30 but they can be chained together.
  6. derricksrandomviews's post in How to insert custom code to a specific Post (like you can with Pages) was marked as the answer   
    Use a code block or markdown block depending on the code. You put one in the post itself. Add the block just like you would an image or text block. 
  7. derricksrandomviews's post in Refund please! No template option or actions available after purchasing a year plan was marked as the answer   
    You are welcome. If you stick with Squarespace, and need help on deciding what template to build on, design tweaking or coding, we are here. This forum is a great service, one you can't buy at any price. 
  8. derricksrandomviews's post in Momentum template is still completely broken on mobile was marked as the answer   
    I went through your site and experienced what you posted. It didn't happen in inspect mobile view on my desktop, I had to be viewing it from my phone. If I scrolled an image, pushed it left or right it would jerk around for the lack of a better term, but if I simply tapped it,  the image would smoothly scroll to the next one, could not get to the previous one by tapping and if I  scrolled back it would do it but not smoothy at all. 
    Have you changed the gallery pages transition from slide to fade In? I think this would change both desktop and mobile.
    I know it would be a bit of work but you could use pages with gallery blocks instead of gallery pages, and create a different layout, but this once again changes both mobile and desktop. 
    There is this code. It changes a summary block carousel to stack on mobile,   https://schwartz-edmisten.com/blog/better-carousel-summary-block-layout-on-mobile
    Momentum is a very unique template, and you have made good use of it with a tough subject to photograph. I can understand why you don't want to move away from it. Let's hope some help is coming soon.

  10. derricksrandomviews's post in Removing "Preview" button from comment box was marked as the answer   
    you can post this is custom css:

    display: none;
  11. derricksrandomviews's post in Feedback on my new counselling website, please. was marked as the answer   
    I think it is a good site. People looking for help don't need to be hit over the head. Your site is calm, very effective for what you do and the message. I have two simple suggestions. One is a back to top link in your footer. Just put this in a code block in the footer : 
    <p><a href="#" class="btt"> Back to Top </a></p>
    Second make your buttons the same color as your logo. I like that color, pastels have a certain power that primes do not. That is what my study of photography has taught me anyway. 
  12. derricksrandomviews's post in Adding spacer 0 pixel to CSS code was marked as the answer   
    Anytime CSS causes a problem, just remove it. I have not seen code break a site where you couldn't fix it and I know from experience. The code you posted looks interesting for sizing spacer blocks. 
  13. derricksrandomviews's post in Customising two different blogs on one website was marked as the answer   
    Best way to do that is to put your blog in the unlinked section of your site, and use summary blocks on two pages, you may not need to create two seperate blogs to do that but you could. The reason to use summary blocks is you can easily customize the look of each "blog" where blog pages, any changes you make for one are going to change the other. I am doing these on my site, I have a stories blog and photography lessons which are also blog posts, but they look like two separate things:

    If you like this idea, I can provide you with more specific instructions as to how to go about doing this.

  15. derricksrandomviews's post in Logo in header in centre when viewing on mobile was marked as the answer   
    This is something that might work. You have an uploaded logo so the top piece of code is what you want to us. 
    For an upload logo, use Center Header Logo and for site title text use Center Site Title.
    // Center Header Logo // @media only screen and (max-width: 640px) { .header-title-logo { width: 120%; text-align: center; } } // Center Site Title // @media only screen and (max-width: 640px) { .header-title-text { width: 120% !important; text-align: center !important; } }

  17. derricksrandomviews's post in Force Summary Carousel to Show More Than 5 Items was marked as the answer   
    Can't give you sepcific code because it takes some customization just for your site, like block ids etc. However I can link you to a way to do it:
  18. derricksrandomviews's post in How to get blog titles to show up as a caption overlay was marked as the answer   
    Using Avenue in 7.0 I discovered quite by accident that if I add a spacer block at the top of any blog post above the image, in the body, not in the header, that when viewing the post the title goes above the image not below it. This will remove the image from a blog list of promoted blocks, featured posts,  but does not effect a blog summary page which I prefer to use anyway. I have custom CSS code loaded that allows me to make a spacer bar half the default minimum height (anywhere I use one).  I suspect this will work for most templates, not hard to find out if it works for you. I will provide the code if wanted. I don't have any posts with the spacer bar in place at the moment but I assure you it works.

  19. derricksrandomviews's post in Wondering if this was possible? was marked as the answer   
    You can upload images and give them click thru urls to other pages, don't have to put a button over them, you can put text or a button underneath, or just make the image a button itself. The icon thing will work as well with a bit of sizing manipulation. Nav bar icons can be done with code so a business plan will be necessary to have a lot of control over the sites look and design.

  20. derricksrandomviews's post in Edit the Colours of my Links was marked as the answer   
    As long as it doesn't appear when visiting the live site, and not logged in,  I would not worry about that, it means the code is loading. 
  21. derricksrandomviews's post in How to remove visible tags and dates on blog posts was marked as the answer

       display: none;

  22. derricksrandomviews's post in How can I add a background image to a code block? was marked as the answer   
    SQSP has two general help articles on this:
    (1) Uploading and Managing Files, and
    (2) Creating a Text Link.
    In each case the tactic is to upload the file, images only in method (1), capture the SQSP generated URL to the file and then use that URL in the code
  23. derricksrandomviews's post in Add Spotify Icon to Top Navigation was marked as the answer   
    I went into  settings and social links, selected add a link and pasted the address for spotify, https://www.spotify.com/us/ This worked on my site, the link placed a Spotify social icon right next to all my other ones. I don't have an account so clicking it went to the main Spotify page.
