  1. It won't be lost, you can get access renewed a couple of times at least under trial parameters. But only you can see it until you pay (though visitors can use the captcha) From your post though it sounds like only you want to see it, in which case you might be better off with a free note taking tool like Onenote. There are other free blogging tools too which may suit you better. Squarespace is aimed at commercial paying sites in the main that have a high design ethos.
  2. Squarespace have reengineered the Search Block and there's a way to put it in the header/top level navigation using the dedicated search page yourwebsite.com/search and add a link page with that search address to your top level navigation. Credit to @SquarespaceGuru for this tip, check out write up which explains it better and subscribe to his newsletter, Squarespace Updates the Search Block and Squarespace: Using the Search Block. Note: If you have an old Search Block you may need to delete it and add a new Search Block to get it to work.
  3. See this http://answers.squarespace.com/questions/14357/add-form-upload-image-field
  4. You've misread the question I think (or it's been changed!)
  5. Using some sort of form - either the Squarespace one or an external one eg Formstack plugging into Squarespace it should be possible I think. I've not done it personally but there would be a way I think. Formstack definitely works with Squarespace My guess is the Squarespace form itself doesn't do this but I've not checked Don't expect to easily integrate it with Squarespace commerce though.
  6. You can set up multiple "basic authors". But sadly Basic Authors cannot log in to your site currently. You need to add the content and then select the Basic Author from the Author dropdown in the Options tab of the editor. See here:http://help.squarespace.com/guides/adding-a-basic-author
  7. Some people may not know there is a Permissions setting, which allows you to limit a user to changing site content. It gives them more than just blog page access, as they have access to any page at the time of writing.

  9. I've added this feature request to my consolidated wish list for summary block version 3 http://answers.squarespace.com/questions/41593/can-we-have-these-features-in-summary-block-version-3
  10. You need to learn how to use the style settings on a squarespace site. If you can't figure it out raise a support ticket, they will take you through it step by step if required. But briefly.. if you are in style settings mode, if you click on those links you want to target, Squarespace will bring up the style settings for those links and you can change their colour.
  11. You can change this in the style settings (Paintbrush icon) Watch the video here: http://help.squarespace.com/guides/making-style-changes Change the link color
  12. I second this. Not for every scenario but for top of the page headline use on blogs it would be useful.
  13. Without customisation code I think not, as the inverted white on black coloured blocks will be tricky. As will the lines.
  14. From a ux perspective , is it a good idea to use this sort of thing? I can envisage some users not knowing its clickable.
  15. go to templateshttp://www.squarespace.com/templates/ click on the templatre you want click on "start with this design"
  16. As its a new feature i'd suggest you contact support, maybe there is a chance they will change the code given its a new feature. I actually think it looks about right. 2mm would be too close.
  17. It isn't possible with the current functionality. Though its something they should consider I think

  19. Given there is now the ability to copy a webpage, presumably one answer to this question about editing live webpages is: copy / duplicate the page the page to be edited, making the copy page not live edit the copy page, copy the old page URL, make the revised copy page live with the changes you've made, delete the old page swap the new URL for the old URL http://blog.squarespace.com/blog/new-feature-roundup-page-duplication-and-more This to me would seem an acceptable workaround, do you agree?
  20. for this reason I think the editor needs to allow the user to select blocks to have colors. Not everything is black and white.
  21. I seem to recall reading that somewhere on the old forum , before they deleted it.
  22. It looks to me like those sites you're referencing use Squarespace version 5 not 6. ie an older version of squarespace. I don't think version 5 is available anymore for new sites. You are correct in saying that the current Squarespace 6 templates are very image centric. At least half of the templates are aimed at photographers (much to my frustration). I suspect photographers are the biggest customers of Squarespace, given the amount of templates they produce for them! This issue is discussed here:http://answers.squarespace.com/questions/943/which-template-would-best-for-this-magazine-news-style However, some of the templates cope fine with or without images. eg this one:http://calvinblogs.com/stephanie-b/ which I got to from here:http://www.squarespace.com/templates/?q=blogging When you sign up for a new site there is an option to remove all the default content when you get to the editing of the blog pages. I suggest you do this, then add some new image free content. This will give you an idea of which templates cope well without images.
