    I see the issue, but this isn't something that Squarespace is designed for. 
    You may be able to re-write your solution so that it can be hosted on Squarespace, but it's difficult to know as you haven't provided details of the actual domain name or code. In any case, you definitely won't be able to do this on a Personal Plan - you'd need to upgrade to a Business Plan. As a workaround I suggest you host your code with a different provider, on a standard web server. There many low-cost hosting services available that could do this and they are likely to be cheaper than upgrading to the higher plan. If you host your Squarespace site without the 'www' subdomain, you'll be able to use this subdomain for the other hosting service so that the URL remains unchanged.

    Thank you - I've heard about this, wasn't sure how much I could trust it to work but I will maybe give it go.
    The weird thing is I've managed to move some of the posts (as shown on the screen shot) but others have disappeared - no longer on the old site but not appeared on the new one? Any ideas on this at all?

    There isn't a built in solution that can do this, but it should be easy to do with the right tools, because you're moving from a 7.0 Dovetail site to a 7.0 Brine site and neither are using Developer Mode.
    You can buy a third party plugin for the Chrome browser (Squarespace Websites Tools Extension) that will do this for you effortlessly, or you could hire someone to do it for you.

    Until Squarespace release a tool to do this, you must copy content from one site to another.

    I loved the video but I see Tuanphan’s point. I guess we all have different preferences. 😀
    As you’ve found, the Summary Block is super effective but can only connect to one collection (one blog in this case) at a time. The obvious workaround is to place all the items in a single blog and then create pages that filter this blog to recreate the individual pages that you currently have. Squarespace improved SEO for this a year ago.  However, you’ve said that you cannot do this, so I mention it for the benefit of others. 
    The other way to achieve this is to leave the content where it is and then copy each collection into one super-collection. The first step is to retrieve the content from each blog collection using JSON. Next, the collections need to be synchronised and combined into one large collection. Once the data has been aggregated, the Summary Block can connect to this new collection and be filtered as required. This is complex and shouldn't be underestimated. If done incorrectly, page performance will suffer. Michael has built an excellent extension/plugin that takes care of all the difficult steps. I’d recommend checking whether this will help in your circumstances.
    Hoping you and yours are safe and healthy.

    Specialist discussion forum products are better for this. That’s why Squarespace built the Circle using Invision Community rather than Squarespace. Other popular choices include Discourse and Insided.

    I'd recommend that you build it on the discussion platform and then use a subdomain of your Squarespace site's domain name to host it - just like this forum.

    Hi @Ima,
    I was having the same issue. I submitted a ticket to Squarespace and they identified that there was an issue with their code. It has now been resolved. To get your site back up and running you should just need to update your local Squarespace Server by opening a new terminal and running this command:
    npm install -g @squarespace/server You should now be on version 1.6.2.
    When you load up your site, you might need to refresh the content cached by adding the query ?nocache=true to the end of localhost:9000; like this:
    http://localhost:9000/?nocache=true That will get you the latest content from your site.
    I hope this fixes it for you. In the future, try contacting Squarespace directly too, they have always been very helpful to me.

    paul2009 reacted to ArunS in Custom CSS doesn't always load properly   
    Site URL: https://www.yeahsure.co/
    I've used some custom CSS to help make some elements on page a little more dynamic but unfortunately they don't always load. Sometimes I'll have to go into the Editor and open up Custom CSS and then only will the elements load up properly on my page. It seems a little odd that they load sometimes and then sometimes I have to open up Custom CSS to activate it.

    Has anyone had this issue before? Is there a reason why this is occurring?

    You are a hero! Thank you! Is it a lot of extra trouble to get the date consistent site wide? So to also change it in the /blog page? In my opinion this should be standard to begin with and it's a flaw in the squarespace 7.1 templates.

    paul2009 got a reaction from JeroenB in Change blog post date to include year   
    I agree Squarespace's priority is (understandably) to develop enough to make it workable and I expect they'll fix these design flaws soon. 
     
    I will follow up on your question about the other date, but it probably won't be today as I'm extremely busy.
    Stay safe.

    paul2009 got a reaction from Krafty in How can I add a table?   
    I tried many suggestions to make tables - this answer details the best way I've found to add tables to Squarespace.
    Custom Table Block
    [Updated 2019] The best solution I have found for responsive and well designed tables on Squarespace is the Custom Table Block that can be purchased as a plugin. Once added, you can add tables just like other standard Squarespace blocks on any page. If your table contains more than a few rows/columns you can add your data to individual Google Sheets and then link them to a Table Block. It's by far the easiest way to add Tables to Squarespace.
    Convert Table to HTML
    If the customer already has the table in a Word document, I'll use the excellent free Word to HTML tool by Olly Cope. I paste in the table and it will convert it to HTML.
    Create HTML Table
    If I don't already have the table I will create it using the excellent HTML table generator at Tables Generator with the CSS option turned off.
    Use a Code Block
    When the HTML has been generated, I add it to a Code Block on the Squarespace page. I replace the initial
      <table>   tag with the following:
      <table class=mytable>   Add some Custom CSS
    So that the table is formatted to match the style of the site I then add a few lines of CSS to the Custom CSS page. Something like:
      .mytable { border: 3px solid #5f102b; background-color: white; th { padding: 6px; height:40px; color: #eeeeee; background-color: #5f102b; } td { padding: 6px; border:1px solid #f1eaf2; } tr:nth-child(odd){background-color: #f1eaf2} }

    paul2009 got a reaction from Krafty in How can I add a table?   
    Sometimes you just want one of your contributors to be able to add a table so that they can add some data, like a league table to a page or a post.
    Squarespace makes most complex things seems simple to do (adding images to Galleries for example) but this 'simple' thing seems so challenging!
    Yes, I know I can add a code block and add some HTML code to create the table. That's fine for me, but my users just want to do it like they would in any other application like MS Word - 'Create Table'.
    I'm still hoping Squarespace will address this soon so we don't have to use online HTML table tools.
