  1. Yo Kathy-o, what's the goal of the Shop? Does it related to you or the Kathy-o brand in any way? I generally think about it in terms of overall brand. If KickinAss relates to Kathy-o, then I would keep them on the same website. If it's a completely separate brand, then keep them separate. I would remove the fact about it being an ecommerce site and focus more on brand.
  2. I agree, it's kind of concerning that Squarespace hasn't shared more information about this. Developer mode is a very large part of the ecosystem.
  3. This is indeed possible on any template regardless of what some users below are saying. Please clarify whether you need a Gallery Block full-bleed, or a Gallery Collection, and I'll provide the code. Gallery Block is my recommended choice and all that's required to make that full bleed is a few lines of CSS, and selecting a few options in the block.
  4. That's not accurate. Pure CSS will indeed do it. All you have to do is span the Gallery Block to browser width. The CSS required is no more than 5 lines.
  5. Yea, try this: http://squarefront.com/template-info You can drag it to your bookmark bar and use it as a bookmarklet
  6. Here's a bookmarklet I adapted from someone else awhile ago. Head over to http://squarefront.com/template-info and drag and drop the link to your bookmark bar to create a bookmarklet.
  7. Hey Greg, I edited the desc slightly. Basically it's a behavior of and Index page with a Gallery as the topmost page, and only one item in the Gallery. I think Bedford style templates also support similar behavior too.
  8. YouTube DOES work though, you just need to set the video parameters manually. I did a write up about this awhile ago: http://squarefront.com/addons/youtube-video-parameters Wistia is still my recommended platform if you're planning on doing lots of video.
  9. Hello everyone, I do not work for Wistia but use that with most commercial projects. Vimeo will work with this method, however they are adamant about NOT given developers access to hide the play button, which makes them not usable for this idea. That's not to say Vimeo wouldn't work with other methods though. Wistia's team also built this responsive, cropping video plugin: http://wistia.com/labs/crop-fill/ which makes it perfect for many great ideas, with little to no coding. The reason I did not suggest Youtube is because it requires playing with all kinds of video parameters.
  10. I noticed this thread surfaced again so I wanted to throw a simple, less technical idea for anyone who's not comfortable with coding. Here's a way to install background video into templates that have "Index" collections (Hudson, Pacific, etc). Index pages normally support Galleries, and if you only use one image/video in a gallery, it will normally span the entire width of the website. Also, Index pages will normally have a feature built-in that lets the navigation stay visible on top of the image/video if the Gallery happens to be the top position. This tutorial plays into that behavior. Step 1: Pick a template with an Index I picked Hudson. The Index is already there. Step 2: Add a Gallery Step 3: Add a Video Step 4: Use Wistia.com or YouTube I uploaded my video, chose the following settings, and copied my embed code into the video in Step 3. I recommend Wistia.com because the built-in player has all the options you need, available with simple checkboxes. Vimeo could also be used, but if you use Vimeo's video player, they are firm about the inability to hide various items that appear on the video player. Wistia on the other hand, offers full control. YouTube also offers full control, but the process to get the correct code can be confusing because it requires using "video parameter" settings. This is the best article I have to explain: http://squarefront.com/addons/youtube-video-parameters, although it probably needs to be updated. And here it is, working on a completely default template. I do realize that many people want an editable content area to appear on top of the video. That is possible, with coding. I'll try to find a simple way to do that to extend the tutorial further.
  11. I'm sure it's not exactly the answer you want to hear but this stuff is very easy to do with Javascript, once you learn it. Javascript libraries like jQuery, and even various scrolling plugins (which are just a collection of pre-packaged custom javascript), allow you to do all sorts of interactions based on what's called the "viewport" position. The plain-english translation of the effects are essentially something like this: when THIS element appears between these two locations of the browser viewport, apply this CSS. For example, this illustration from the Skrollr.js library lays out the position attributes you can use to control when an interaction takes place. Skrollr is used on http://squarespace.com/seven. The start attribute has one CSS setting. The end attribute has another CSS setting. Skrollr animates the CSS from start to end. These animation don't need to be so complex though. They can be done with Javascript alone.
  12. I agree. At Squarefront.com, this was a major feature I needed so I started building my own system that puts content into an external database where it has to be authenticated to access. Not an easy solution to implement though.
  13. I've seen this being thrown around as a solution to create a membership site. The only thing I wanted to mention here is that it's worth noting that Sentry will NEVER truly lock your content down because all content put into a Squarespace website is public in nature. There is no secured content. It's likely that non-technical users will never know the difference, so it really depends on the audience. That being said, in my opinion Tinypass.com is cool solution too.
  14. http://knackhq.com is a far better solution and can be styled via CSS.
