    Neuerotica reacted to AndyWTFTW in Social Sharing on 7.1   
    Glad to discover this thread and learn that I'm not the only one frustrated with social sharing icons not being standard in 7.1.  Am I correct that this complaint goes back 3+ years and still isn't resolved by SS? Not cool. So is only solution code injection/widget via third party? What is consensus on best option for that assuming SS doesn't come through (I just contacted Customer Support about it)?

    Thanks! Made it work for sharing individual blog posts! (added {permalink} in the html code)
    And agree with many others on this thread that share buttons should be a standard feature, i'm new to squarespace but quite disappointed on this.

    Yes, this is normal when your site is compliant with privacy laws like GDPR because you must not send analytics cookies to visitors until they click the opt-in message on your cookie banner.
    Once visitors click the opt-in button, cookies will be used and their analytics data will be accurate. It will be less accurate for other visitors who don't opt-in - hence the warning.
    If you are looking for a way to collect analytics without using Cookies, you may want to take a look at TinyAnalytics. There are no cookies and it is fully compliant with GDPR, CCPA and PECR 🙂. It's free for up to 50,000 monthly page views.

    I really wish Squarespace would hurry up and roll out this feature. The ShareThis buttons are ugly and criminally outdated. They looked cool in 2009, not so much now.

    What's even more confounding, is that the controls are there. They simply don't work as yet. Social sharing is such an integral part of marketing for most of us, and it would seem to me that implementing this function should have been at the top of the list of things-to-do for the Squarespace team.

    @Susana_SQSPInteresting choice of words: "feature requests". I think it's apparent that what many of us are expressing here is incredulity and disappointment that 7.1 lacks a component that even the most backwards of web platforms possess. What good would putting in a feature request be if the powers-that-be don't realize that their platform is lacking a crucial component? Could you imagine begging an automobile manufacturer to include something so standard as windshield wipers on their vehicles?  
    The response from Squarespace on this matter has been shocking, to say the very least.
    "Beg us, and we may consider your request."
    Really? 😒

    I spoke to a representative at SqSp last year about it, and was told that it was a "good idea", and that he would forward my request to engineers. 😒 I thought he was joking. They obviously have plans to roll out this feature since the controls are there, but I don't know why they're sitting on it.

    That was my exact experience with Squarespace late last year, which I mentioned earlier in this discussion. I have friends with deep pockets who have asked me about Squarespace 7.1, people who are familiar with my old 7.0 site and are impressed with the new one. I've told them all that while I truly do love the new platform, it lacks a native share option. This has been a dealbreaker for all but one. I must admit, however, I haven't told that one person yet. She's looking forward to signing up for 7.1 and I completely forgot to tell her because she was so enthusiastic about it. I don't have the heart to tell her right now. She sells art for tens of thousands of dollars (and more), could you imagine a visitor not being able to quickly share something like that? 
    Just this evening, my sister asked me a few questions about 7.1, because the person she hired to build a website for her company suggested WordPress instead. Though she understands that WordPress is a lot more work than Squarespace, she doesn't have much confidence in 7.1 because of the lack of (in her words) "a simple function that even crappy websites have". 
    I'm paying for share buttons thanks to someone here in this discussion, but I really would rather not.

    Neuerotica got a reaction from Tesia in How to upload a text file to the root of a Squarespace domain - Google Ads   
    This method worked for me last year, but no longer seems to be working. Even when I had it working, it would intermittently stop working. 

    I'm trying now with the full URL redirect, e.g. "/ads.txt -> https://domain.squarespace.com/s/ads.txt 301" If this still doesn't work, I'm going to have to find an alternative to Adsense.

    We need share buttons for our blog to help get the word out as we're a small nonprofit organization and I'm bummed that I had to use a 3rd party service for something so basic and included with every other platform. If anyone from Squarespace reads this, please submit a feature request that enables social sharing of blog posts - thanks.

    I'm honestly so dumbfounded that this is not in there.
    Squarespace needs to get much better at communicating what is and isn't available as features on their platform.
    It's also whack because 7.1 is receiving all the new cool features and development, but doesn't have the basics covered.
    Kinda ridiculous.

    Still no support for this, the controls are still there but they do not work ... Any idea when this feature will be implemented? Other services have this as a basic service feature (Wix, Shopify...) and I may have to switch to one of them if I can't get this soon.
