  1. Thanks @tuanphan and @jordandaniellet for this post! I managed to get the 1 column working using both of these :) Would it be possible to adjust the width as well? I reduced margin between the images to 5px and I would like it if left/right uses the same margin. I tried adjusting the width parameter(s) but I can't center the thing :) If anyone wants to check: https://roadrunner-elephant-4rfm.squarespace.com/posters (pw elephant)
  2. Another massive design flaw in 7.1. I must be wrong but it seems as if Squarespace is shifting it's focus to more regular websites, online businesses and such. As an artist portfolio site there are some very basic, essential options missing. Not being able to control the height of a portrait image in your gallery being another one.
  3. Artists & designers want to be in creative control over how their work is presented. Some of these (in my eyes) very obvious and basic principles have yet to be implemented by Squarespace for 7.1. Anyways, the image blocks are full bleed. For a moment I was hopeful it's possible to add the original image as a background and use a transparent png in front of it to keep a height, but the background looks cropped. DIdn't spend much time on it so you could try yourself.
  4. yeah I tried that as well. Yesterday I had good results on desktop using individual image blocks. The site is not live but I made some screenshots for comparison: Page as a gallery block: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r0i0kzn3lbrd7x2/galleryblock01.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/my8tkxufopn19jt/galleryblock02.jpg?dl=0 As in dividual image blocks: https://www.dropbox.com/s/49ek5bgzrx7fuzg/imageblocks01.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ae3czrkyzofd0u/imageblocks02.jpg?dl=0 The image blocks don't look good on mobile: https://www.dropbox.com/s/o16yp3fdxejwldw/mobile.jpg?dl=0 The image blocks were set to poster, so they look darker.
  5. I can't wait to find a solution to this! It's the only thing that's keeping me from moving to 7.1 now. I have many projects that are portrait and in my opinion it's really important to be able to first show a work it it's entirety, not a 3rd of it. I've seen suggestions like put a spacer both sides of your image in your gallery block, but you can't put a spacer next to just one image. The whole thing moves 🙂 Another suggestion (from support) is to use blank pages and add for every image a new block. Yes then it works! You can change width of your portrait image. It will take ages though if you have lots of material.
