  1. Thank you tuanphan! That works perfectly! If I may presume to aske for more...do you know how I could center and italicize that text via Custom CSS?
  2. For legal/tax purposes, I'd like to add a simple text block to my Store page in a 7.0 Bedford site: “All sales are subject to approval at the home office in Wisconsin.” I could add that to each product page, but would like to have it on my main Store page. Aside from the banner, is there some way to add a simple text block to the main Store page(s)? Ideally, that would go either immediately before or after the product thumbnails. www.herocards.us/store
  3. The first option had no effect, but the second one did the trick! It impacts all pages, rather than just the main page. Not ideal, but much preferable to pushing page content off the screen on my main page! Thanks so much, Ziggy!
  4. Thanks for the fast response, Ziggy! I tried that solution, but there's no change.
  5. On the home page of my site, https://www.herocards.us/, I'd like to reduce the padding slightly between the navigation and title, and also the buttons and bottom edge (shown in red). Ideally, I'd like to do this on the home page only, as other pages seem fine. The background is a looping video. There are a lot of Forum CSS solutions for gallery pages and other similar situations. But I can't seem to find anything for adjusting this spacing on a Bedford template Home page. Can anyone help me with this CSS coding?
  6. Thanks for taking the time, paul2009...and for the thorough answers! Responding to "You don't explain...": If you look at the main URL, you'll see that we add “12 new Hero Cards, 12 new Hero Stories…every month.” That would grow the site by 144 pages per year at a minimum. I have considered the blog option but found the design limitations to be too much of a compromise. I also need to give each Hero story page a number URL (which is printed on the back of a physical card) e.g.: https://www.herocards.us/hero83. Those URLs are already printed on our cards, so I can't change the URL format. I'm not sure how to pull that specific URL off using the blog format. I'll revisit the blog collection solution, as it may be the only possibility for staying on the Squarespace platform. If I can't bend that to fit my desired design and solve the URL convention...I'll have to (unwillingly) move everything to a different platform. UGH! Thanks again for sharing your expertise! -Craig
  7. Site URL: http://www.herocards.us I'm well aware of Squarespace page count limits, so please don't respond with a link to that explanation. My site is approaching 100 pages and will grow by at least 12 pages per month. I'm also aware of some workarounds to game the page count limitations (using blogs, galleries, etc.). My questions are: Will Squarespace ever expand the limits so larger sites can stay on their platform? How does browser loading of pages work with Squarespace? Does it somehow need to load an entire site? Or does is load one page at a time? Are the limitations mainly because of the cost of server space…or load times (see above)? I'd gladly pay more for more server space. I do love Squarespace and am now well integrated with Commerce, Email Campaigns... and now looking at the new Custom Merch feature. I don't want to be forced to transfer everything to a different platform down the road because of page limitations! But if this will never be increased by Squarespace, I have no choice. It's best to do it now with <100 pages, rather than in a couple of years when we have much more content to redo. Advice?
  8. Same question here. I'm using a cover page (7.0 sites only), which does have a newsletter function. But I don't like that this requires 3 levels for the user—click on the social post, click the button on the landing page, then finally click the SUBMIT button to sign up. I'd love to remove that middle step! I'm also not a fan of the footer signup option, as Bedford 7.0 template takes up a HUMONGOUS amount of screen real estate. It would be great to be able to send someone directly to the newsletter sign-up popup!
  9. Site URL: https://www.herocards.us I'd like advice on the best way to create a page (Bedford template) filled with links that are sortable by category. My site has story pages for individual U.S. service members, and it's growing rapidly. My thought is to have a one-stop page that links for each service member, numbered consecutively. Ideally, the user would click Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or Space Force, and the list would reflect their choice. No need for images or descriptions. Just a page that fills with the names, which link to the service member’s individual page. It's simple enough to do a long list of text links. But I need help on how to make the sortable categories.
  10. Thanks Paul2009. While I don't like the answer itself, I DO like that you responded and saved me the time of continuing to troubleshoot something that can't be changed! Much obliged!
  11. Site URL: https://www.herocards.us In Bedford template (7.0), I want to edit the customer notification emails for gift cards. I know where to do that, but one of my edits is not working. The default text in the Subject area is "A Gift for {Site Title}". This makes no sense. The gift is not for my site! I want to change it to "A Gift for {Recipient Name}!" The template does allow me to type it exactly that way and save it. But the {Recipient Name} fill-in function does not work. It seems that only {Site Title} can be in the Subject area. Maybe I could just delete {Site Title} and use plain text "You" as a work-around. But can anyone help me understand why {Recipient Name} can be used in the body of the email, but not in the subject area?
  12. Site URL: https://www.herocards.us I just set up Gift Cards (Bedford template, 7.0). All works well, except that in my test all notifications go to the Gift Card Recipient. I tested placing an order to send the Gift Card to another person, then canceled the order to test the refund process. Two of the emails rightly go to the Recipient. But two emails referring to my credit card purchase should go to the Purchaser, rather than the Recipient. - Gift Card “Order Confirmed” email showing the last 4 credit card digits (should go to Purchaser) - Gift Card Issued notification email with unique code (to Recipient, correct) - Gift Card Voided email (to Recipient, correct) - Gift Card “refund has been issued” email showing the last 4 credit card digits (should go to Purchaser) Am I missing something?
  13. Update: Squarespace Support confirms that my sitemap.xml file is correct, and set to public. They say it's a Google Console issue and send me to the GC Support, which is just another help forum. I've tried every solution submitted there, and have not had my sitemap fetched now for 6 weeks. I don't want to leave Squarespace, but I have to be able to get some SEO love or I'll be out of business fast! While it doesn't seem to be a Squarespace issue, I have to try something! Anyone?
  14. Yes, that's correct Ed. Thanks so much for considering my issue! I've submitted it as you show it (https://www.herocards.us/sitemap.xml), and also did the double// before sitemap.xml as some other online forums suggested. Neither one solves the "couldn't fetch" problem. Any ideas? -Craig
  15. Site URL: https://www.herocards.us/ Google Console appears to be indexing my site but says "couldn't fetch" every time I try to submit the sitemap.xml. There are other forum posts about this, but the only resolutions I'm seeing range from "wait" to "don't worry." It has been a month since I first submitted my sitemap, and I'm still getting "couldn't fetch" under GC Sitemap, and "Indexed, not submitted in sitemap" when I do a URL Inspection. Help!
  16. In Commerce e-mail global styles, the left and right padding (header) doesn't completely go away. I'm using a heading image, setting padding to 0 to make the image align with the right and left sides of my e-mail content area. Sizing to fit this header is very wonky! I've tried 2500px wide, 750px wide, and in-between. All come in small when imported, and I have to drag the image height slider to the max just to have the image fit the space. What am I missing?
  17. Pretty please, Squarespace? Can you add a feature to image libraries allowing users to delete or replace images (within the library)? Building a site involves a lot of trial and error with images. Having to wade through an ocean of unused images every time you want to find one back is a very frustrating user experience! I'd think that a company built on website creation would place at least some emphasis on its user experience. This neglect is costing you customers in a big way.
  18. Is it possible to make the title text of a gallery image into a link?
  19. Is it possible to add another text style in the Bedford template? I'd like to simply use the "Normal" style in a smaller type size for footnotes on multiple pages. But the text style offers just options: Header 1, Header 2, Header 3, and Normal ("Code" is not an option). Is there some way to add a new "Footnote" style? Or at least to reduce the type size of Normal - only in the footnotes? I may be stuck just italicizing. But that's not a great compromise.
  20. Thanks Paul2009. Version 7.1 really blows, IMHO. While 7.1 does have this one advantage of Squarespace-hosted video, it removes so much design control in other areas. I don't know if Squarespace lost a lot of design talent, or made a strategic decision to target people who just want to stick with the template.
  21. Paul2009: Any chance Squarespace will fix this for 7.0 templates? 7.1 is truly awful and lacks any customization. I went through a lot of time and expense, opened a new Vimeo account just to have video banners (should be simple). Then after all that I find out it's not working on mobile and I have to use a fallback image for that! UGH! Beyond frustrated. It seems they've figured it out for 7.1, but I need this same fix for 7.0 Bedford template. I'm considering leaving the platform over this. Can anyone suggest a better platform? Wix? Better yet...please fix this problem in 7.0 templates, fast!
