    There are currently three different "types" of Squarespace editor:

    • Squarespace 7.0: You can add blocks by clicking an insert point. Version 7.0 does not have "sections".
    • Squarespace 7.1 with Classic Editor: You must add a section to a blank page first. You can then add blocks (if required) by clicking insert points. 
    • Squarespace 7.1 with Fluid Engine Editor: You must add a section to a blank page first. Blocks can be added by clicking the "+ Add Block" button.

    If you need further guidance, I suggest checking which version you are using and then watch some of the getting started videos. For example, Adding content with blocks.

    What I am trying to tell you is, if we add a section to our page that has an auto layout, these directions do not always work. There are numerous auto layouts in the fluid engine editor as well as the classic editor that do not offer the option to add blocks. For instance, there is no auto layout with a carousel or scrolling image feature that allows this.

    What if I want to make a one-page site with multiple sections & hyperlinks that link to each section on the page? I cannot add a code block to enable me to do that with some of the sections I've chosen. That needs to be made clear (and also it is very inconvenient, so maybe someone should consider adding the block feature to all of the sections).

    There are no known issues with insert points. If you are having difficulties check the following:

    • If you are using Squarespace 7.1, check that you have added a blank section to the page. Insert points won't appear until you have added a section. 
    • Check you have sufficient permissions (in Settings > Permissions)
    • Check you are using one the latest browsers.

    If nothing helps, please contact Squarespace Customer Care for assistance.


    so are you basically implying that we cannot add blocks or use insert points on 7.1 OR 7.0 unless we start with a blank section?? what if we need to make modifications to auto layouts?
