  1. I created an anchor link that goes to a code block further down the page. In the code block, I have the following code: <h3 id="popsiclepostscript">*Popsicle Postscript </h3> The anchor link works, but now the blank space below the "*Popsicle Postscript" heading is slightly taller than the spacing below the other h3 headings that were created within text blocks (without anchor links and HTML coding). Is there a way to reduce the space below the linked heading?
  2. Has anyone implemented Akismet as an anti-spam measure on a form on a Squarespace site? If so, how did you do it? Am looking for something that gets closer to GDPR compliance than Google ReCaptcha. TIA. https://akismet.com/gdpr/
  3. Has anyone found a free or low-cost GDPR-compliance solution that works with a small Squarespace site, that is actually compliant with GDPR legal requirements? After spending the afternoon reading, it doesn't appear that the [cookie banner] GDPR solution that Squarespace makes available to its own customers is compliant. Interestingly, it is also not the one they use for their own corporate website(s). A cookie banner alone does not meet GDPR requirements. There must be valid, documented, reversible and renewable consent. Consent must be obtained prior to processing, and be transparent and customizable by the site visitor (i.e. necessary cookies, other cookies listed by type). Someone who gave consent must be able to revoke consent. "Documentation" means a secure consent repository/database so that we, as site operators, can provide proof that consent was obtained. The database needs to store a record of each user's consent, including how they consented, exactly what they consented to, and the date/time they gave their consent. Another issue is that a GDPR-compliant site's privacy policy needs to be transparent. Something as basic as the data collected on a Squarespace form - where and how is it stored and processed? If someone who submitted a form wants their data deleted - how does one do that? Since I am not an expert in GDPR, there may be other requirements that I missed. My "solution" for the past 3 years has been to turn off all cookies and explicitly state that the site is not intended for site visitors from the EU. This goes against the purpose of the website, and is not a satisfactory solution by any measure.
