I've dug around a bit...and it appears that Cover Pages are not available in Squarespace 7.1.
☹️ Kinda wishing I would have discovered this before putting in a ton of work on a new site. Does anyone know of any workaround or replacement option?
My client is not ready to make his website live yet...but would like a nice looking cover (splash) page that serves as a "coming soon" announcement. I really, really hope Cover Pages eventually make a come-back into SS 7.1 so we can create a page without navigation menus and footer content.
