  1. It is unnecessary for 99.99% of people. Unless you want to do something complex then you shouldn't really touch it. In addition you will only receive system wide updates and not template specific updates, you will also be responsible for maintaining your template. If something goes wrong or you need help then Squarespace won't be able to provide support. Changing the some links and font isn't something you need developer mode for. I would take a look at the below support document on making style changes to your website. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815788-Making-style-changes Even if you find yourself needing to make changes with CSS or Javascript you can do so without entering developer mode. You can use your sites global CSS and code injector areas. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815928-Adding-custom-HTML-CSS-and-JavaScript
  2. Hi there, you won’t be able to view your websites code, that’s not really how Squarespace works. You can really only access your websites code if you use Developer mode which I wouldn’t recommend doing. I have linked to a support document which should help you identify your template. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005308187-What-s-my-site-s-template-and-version-
  3. Hi there, I think in general your website has a very good flow and is clearly presented. The only feedback that I really have is: You homepage doesn't say what you do, with the first image you showed I thought that maybe you were an electoral advisor of some sort or worked in politics. Maybe something simple like a tag line under your logo or even just some text under or over the images. Have you considered putting your demo reel on your homepage instead and have it auto play? I feel like that would say what you do more then the current images do. That leads me onto my next one, I would also consider putting Reel within the Work folder. It would just help clean up the navigation menu and create a more concise feel to your website as it seems almost out of place. Now I don't fully know your background or what is most important for your line of work so having your Reel separate may be beneficial to you, but again I would consider setting it up on your homepage. In your Photography and Fine Art pages there are no captions or descriptions to go along with the images which is present with the example on the Motion page. The images speak for themselves but it would be nice to know a little bit more about them. But great work!
  4. Which template are you using, also are you able to share a link to your website so we can take a look for you?
  5. Try entering the below into your websites CSS, just remember to adjust the font size to your desired size. .main-nav .folder li a {font-size:9px!important}
  6. Are you using a template with AJAX enabled? If so try disabling it and seeing if it works. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000253288-Ajax-loading
  7. Also consider with the current set-up you have at the moment will redirect anyone who presses the add to cart button. This means that if someone clicks the add to cart button and a product is out of stock that they will still be redirected to the cart page.
  8. Drip campaigns are definitely possible, you just need to create an automation, select the trigger and then when you would like it to send. The only real limit is that you can only send them up to 60 days after the trigger is activated. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002077567#toc-connect-and-schedule-automations
  9. The maximum file size that you may upload to Squarespace is 20MB. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205813928-Uploading-and-managing-files For more general limitations, every platform has them. Wix for example doesn't really provide responsive templates which can hurt your SEO as Google factors mobile usability of your website into its ranking. A good place to start is to look at the pricing page on the Squarespace website which broadly lists out what Squarespace can do. https://www.squarespace.com/pricing Please let me know if you have more specific requirements that you are looking for in a website platform and I can tell you if Squarespace is the right choice or not.
  10. Okay, you are referring to the summary block limit and not the gallery page limit. They gallery page itself can hold 250 images but summary blocks can only display 30 images at a time. There's no reason you couldn't just put two summary block one after another. You would just need to tag the images accordingly and pull in the relevant tags to their respective summary blocks so you don't have images repeating.
  11. Are you referring to the limit with the Summary Block as Gallery pages should be able to hold 250 photos? If it is the Summary Block limitation that you are referring to then I would recommend looking at the plugin by @michaeleparkour which will help you get over this limitation. https://www.squarewebsites.org/products/lazy-summaries
  12. It looks like they're using the Wells template not the Supply template. https://wells-demo.squarespace.com
  13. You will need to be on the Advance Commerce plan and have Abandoned Cart Recovery enabled. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/207294117-Abandoned-Cart-Recovery
  14. Looking at it from a pure commerce stand point and what I consider to be one of the most flexible template on Squarespace I would choose Brine. https://www.squarespace.com/templates/brine You're probably looking at the Brine template thinking that you pickled vegetables don't really fit in with photography but there are many different templates within the Brine family. I have linked to a support document explaining the Brine template family and a list of the different templates within the Brine family. Hopefully they can give you some inspiration and an idea of what can be achieved on the Brine template. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/212512738-Brine-template-family#toc-templates-in-the-brine-family Do you have a current website or vision of how you would like to your website to look/flow?
  15. So from the screenshot it looks like you're using version 7.1 of Squarespace and unfortunately you can't switch templates with version 7.1. If you would like to switch to a version 7.0 template then you will need to start a new trail. I have linked to a support document below which should help explain which template is in which version of Squarespace. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005308187
  16. If you want a line after H1 text then you will need something more along the lines of the below CSS. h1:after { content: ""; display: inline-block; border-top: 1px solid black; width: 40px; margin: 0 20px; transform: translateY(-15px); }
  17. I wouldn't count or wait for Squarespace to add it. That being said you can upload custom fonts relatively straight forward, below is a blog post that will walk your through the process. https://www.pareto-design.com/the-blog/2017/2/6/adding-custom-fonts-to-squarespace
  18. Not by default, but @michaeleparkour created a plugin that you can use to create a file uploader for the built-in forms. https://www.squarewebsites.org/blog/squarespace-websites-uploader
  19. I don't have a work around but it would be nice to have Business Name as an optional field that we can enable; like what we can do with phone numbers on the checkout page. My use case is more centred around the checkout experience but It's not just businesses that the lack of business name field excludes, it also excludes normal customers who want their orders delivered to work. I see either one of two things happen with the system how it currently is when people need to enter a business name. They don't and the address is incomplete They force it in which messes with the formatting and Stripes fraud check
  20. I’m assuming that you are referring to the plugins that display a little pop-up when you hover over a specific word. If so I have linked to a plugin for Squarespace below, its not automatic like the Wordpress ones so there will be a bit of manual work. https://noughtsandones.com/plugins/text-tool-tip
  21. @paul2009 sells a plugin that would do exactly what you want and will save you a lot of manual work. Just remember to read the limitations regarding which templates it is compatible with before you purchase it. https://sf.digital/squarespace-product-enquiry-form
  22. So depending on the template you're using you should be able to remove it in the style editor. Failing that place the below in you websites CSS. .sqs-add-to-cart-button-wrapper {display:none!important}
  23. Not built in, you will need some third party software. An example of such is MemberSpace (linked below) but use it with caution and make sure that everything behind the login wall is secure. In addition, the content that your users will be saving is another issue in itself. https://www.memberspace.com But personally I would ask yourself if Squarespace is really the best fit or if there is another platform that will do what you need out of the box.
  24. This is the social image in the page settings. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205812778-Adding-social-sharing-images#toc-add-an-alternate-social-sharing-image--computer-only-
  25. SQSPThemes / @RasOmari sell a plugin that will do exactly what you want (linked below). https://www.sqspthemes.com/plugins/gallery-random-order
