  1. PS - I found this, is it appropriate? https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/font-variant-ligatures
  2. One of the basic tenets of typography is the application of a ligature to a particular combination of characters in order to achieve a smoother textural effect to an overall body of text. Common ligatures in hot metal type (letterpress) were fi, fl, ffi, ffl etc. The file attached shows the application of a ligature to an f i combination. See how the dot of the i (the tittle) sits clumsily next to the top of the f whereas the version with the ligatured glyph is much smoother. Modern digital fonts have multiple ligatures built into the font as individual glyphs and industry standard design software automatically recognizes when a ligature needs to be inserted. However Squarespace does not automatically substitute ligatures and there appears to be no function in settings to enable you to set this up. I assume there must be a coding solution to this and if so, how do I apply it as I have no coding experience.
  3. Hi, I want to hide the Page Header (Logo and Navigation) for a specific number of pages within a site. I have worked out I need to insert code into the Advanced Settings of the specific page and have used: <style> header, footer, mobile-bar {display:none !important; } </style> This worked and hides the Page Header on a desktop machine but when I view it on a mobile the template still inserts a Menu. Is there anything I need to add to make the Menu disappear? Thanks in advance John
  4. Site URL: https://grouse-capybera-9azb.squarespace.com Because the Events Calendar page does not support regular, repeating events without manually inserting the repeated events every week I thought I would insert a block above the Calendar Listings which could state weekly events. However the Events Calendar page does not allow insertion of text blocks above the Calendar Listings. So I thought of a workaround - use the Banner function to exhibit the Page Title and Page Description Text which will serve as a text block. So I inserted a Blue background into the banner and formatted the text. This works fine, but because the Banner background is a graphic it does not reflow when looking at the site on a mobile and so the Page Description text disappears. Any thoughts? I am a CSS newbie – thanks in advance for your help! Password Turner1754
