  1. Derrick, I took a look at the Brine Demo site, along with a few others. I love the way they look, I like the way the shops look. The gallery uses Montauk, and while it's classy and clean, I wonder if the shop pages are all they could be. Maybe the event account needs the shop, and the main gallery can use that!
  2. Yes, exactly that. The shop(s) would be on the gallery's main site, and I assume they'd have items in there year 'round. But during the month or so that the special show is going on, there would be an additional shop containing all the pieces in that show. This show would have 200+ unique artworks, by nearly as many separate artists. If SquareSpace allows it, and to save the gallery some $$$ I think the way to do it would be to have the event site link to the shop. My question is less about the technical aspects of linking, and more about sharing one account's site features, even though they are actually the same company. It would be money squarespace would not be getting. I don't know how clunky it would be. I anticipate having to double up on data entry if I need to do shop entries o one site, and a slideshow/gallery or whatever they decide they would like. 😕
  3. Thanks for the help, Derrick. I made a free sample site about a month ago for them to look at , when they first asked about doing it. Even after warning that they had only 2 weeks to give me feedback, they didn't get around to it, and it expired. I'm trying to get them to decide on key things in advance before I try again. In the meantime, I do have access to the main site, but do not want to mess with anything that I might not be able to fix. Before I tell them it's OK, would you know if it is allowable for their second site (with a 2nd paid, but basic plan) to share the shop with the gallery's main site after they upgrade?
  4. Thanks Paul. I'm thinking I can set up the shops on the main site, and just link from the event site. I don't think they'll mind paying the extra $$$ for the second site. Now to figure out how to make it flashy, yet classy. (I'm new to using Squarespace).
  5. Thanks, Derrick. I will try a couple different ways. I've been afraid try too much experimenting, because I don't want to mess up their main site.
  6. I'm not sure where to put this, so if anyone has a better suggestion, please feel free to let me know. I've not been able to find the answers I need. It's possible I may be missing something in the various plan details. I'm helping with a special project for an art gallery that already has a fairly new basic Squarespace site. They plan to upgrade soon and add a shop for their artists to sell their work online. They do a special event every year, which always had it's own separate & temporary (6 months +/-) website (elsewhere), with a separate domain name. It was hosted together, but not at a DIY web builder. For the upcoming event, they would like to attach itself to the gallery's main site, and use it's shop (once established). But I see a couple potential issues that I'd like to work out in advance. I hope I can explain it properly 1. The event has it's own domain name, which would go directly to that site. I understand that we can use multiple domain names, but would name2. com go to the main site's home page, or can it be set to go directly to the event's home page? 2. The event pages have always been a bit different, in that they use a different logo, and some of the committee likes it more splashy. I don't see a way to change things like navigation and other design elements without it being global across the site. Is that right? Are there ways to work around it? 3. The event site has a number of pages, and as the event progresses, pages are added, pages are removed, content is changed... some committee members like a clear navigation menu right there, as opposed to having all the pages in a submenu of the EVENT. Is navigation global across the site? (One workaround I've considered is hiding the main menu and adding buttons, but this looks bulky and terrible to me). 4. Is it possible to have the two separate websites on one plan? The shop would be shared, it would just have different things in it for a month or so. Thanks in advance for any answers you can give.
