  1. paul2009's post in DNS pointing to a dk domain was marked as the answer   
    When your domain name is hosted by a third-party provider, you can connect it to your Squarespace site by following a process called domain mapping.
    To do this, you'll need to edit the DNS settings using the control panel of your third-party provider. The settings are documented in this Squarespace guide, but if you aren't sure how to apply these, I recommend you contact the support team at domain hosting company.
  2. paul2009's post in Link to embed for newsletter signup/email capture? was marked as the answer   
    Squarespace has a Newsletter Block that allows visitors to sign up to a Squarespace Mailing List using  Campaigns.
    Can you explain why this isn't suitable or provide an example of how you want it to work?
  3. paul2009's post in How to change the calendar start of the week from Sunday to Monday? was marked as the answer   
    This is another example of Squarespace being US-centric. Unfortunately it cannot be changed.
    I'm hopeful that when Squarespace update their old YUI3 calendar block, they'll add some customisation options to make this possible.
  4. paul2009's post in Adding Font Awesome icons to Squarespace buttons was marked as the answer   
    Your instructions are outdated. Adding HTML to text labels is not considered good practice and is not supported. See:
     
  5. paul2009's post in Subscription feature for a meal subscription service was marked as the answer   
    Features 1 and 2 are not available.
    You may want to refer to my post titled Squarespace Commerce Limitations as it lists a number of subscription limitations that I have raised with Squarespace.
  6. paul2009's post in POS (Point of Sale) Options with Squarespace was marked as the answer   
    Next week, the old "Commerce" app is being retired on Android, but the Square/Squarespace integration is not going away. Square is still available for point of sale payments on Squarespace using the updated "Squarespace" app on an iPhone or iPad.
  7. paul2009's post in How can I add a checkbox (confirmation of consent) on the cart page? was marked as the answer   
    You can do this on the checkout page using a custom checkout form. You cannot do this on the cart page. 
  8. paul2009's post in blog width in 7.1 was marked as the answer   
    Thanks, I see the issue now. You are referring to the blog post list, not the individual blog post articles that I referred to in my first reply.
    You should be able to achieve a full width blog list on mobile by adding this to Design > Custom CSS:
    @media screen and (max-width: 767px) {   .blog-single-column .blog-single-column--text {     width: 100%;   } } Let me know how you get on.
  9. paul2009's post in Adjusting search bar border width was marked as the answer   
    Use the following:
    .sqs-search-ui-button-wrapper.color-light .search-input { border: 2px solid #eee; } Notes:
    1. This is CSS. Add to Design > Custom CSS.
    2. The example sets the border width to 2 pixels. You can modify the width or colour to meet your requirements.
    3. Please bear in mind that the Search is not reliable. For example, in the screenshot below it shows 'no results found' despite the words being in the title of one of the posts down the page. I've been monitoring this issue for some time.

  11. paul2009's post in Variants selector was marked as the answer   
    See my previous post here:
     
  12. paul2009's post in How to add alot of variants to a product? More than 250+ was marked as the answer   
    On Squarespace, a product can have up to 250 variant combinations. You cannot change this with code. The only workaround is to create more products that have fewer variations.
    The site you've quoted as an example is a WordPress/WooCommerce site, not Squarespace.
  13. paul2009's post in Problem with robots.txt! was marked as the answer   
    A robots.txt file tells search engines which pages on your site they shouldn't crawl. All Squarespace sites use the same robots.txt file to help follow SEO best practices and keep your site Google-friendly. You cannot change it. 
    For more information, see Understanding Google SEO emails and console errors.
  14. paul2009's post in Line break in site title was marked as the answer   
    You should be able to split it by setting a maximum width for the title. For example, by adding some CSS to Design > Custom CSS:
    /* desktop site title */ .has-site-title .Header-branding { max-width: 300px; } /* mobile site title */ .has-site-title .Mobile-bar-branding { max-width: 230px; }   If this post was helpful, please click an icon below  ⬇️ 
  15. paul2009's post in Help to remove Sidebar Navigation in Members area was marked as the answer   
    You can remove the folder navigation with some CSS. The folder navigation has the unique ID 'folderNav', so setting this to be hidden (display:none) should achieve this. 
    Here's the CSS wrapped in some style tags. You should be able to add this to the Advanced page settings of each page where you want this to be hidden. To find this, click the gear icon next to each page name in the PAGES panel.
    <style> #folderNav { display: none!important; } </style>  
  16. paul2009's post in Help to remove Sidebar Navigation in Members area was marked as the answer   
    Add this within the style tags on the affected page(s) and let me know how you get on:
    .collection-type-page:not(.hide-page-sidebar) #folderNav+#content { width: 100%; }  
  17. paul2009's post in Member Areas - bulk upload to create accounts? was marked as the answer   
    Members must create their own account manually by signing-up. You cannot import a list.

  18. paul2009's post in Carrier Calculated Shipping was marked as the answer   
    A merchant outside the US cannot use Carrier Calculated Shipping on Squarespace. They will need to manually calculate costs instead, based on weights/volumes.
    If you need this feature, I recommend Shopify, as they offer carrier-calculated shipping in a number of countries. on the checkout page! For example:
    Real-time Australia Post and StarTrack shipping rates in Australia Completely automate Parcelforce shipping in the UK Display live Canada Post shipping rates at checkout
  19. paul2009's post in Shipping rate calculation in Australia was marked as the answer   
    Squarespace cannot calculate shipping costs for customers, at least not outside the US.
    You'll need to manually estimate your shipping costs and enter these details (based on size, weight and country) or require customers to contact you for a shipping quote before they purchase.
    If you need this feature, I recommend Shopify. This is a much more advanced ecommerce platform with many more ecommerce focussed features than Squarespace, although it's fair to say that it has a higher learning curve, isn't as design-friendly and can be a little more expensive. However, it does have carrier-calculated shipping on the checkout page! For example, real-time Australia Post and StarTrack shipping rates for domestic & international shipments.

  20. paul2009's post in Addtional Custom Navigation Links was marked as the answer   
    You can do this by creating the series of links using HTML and then add this into Settings > Advanced > Code Injection > Header. You can then add a little styling (to Design > Custom CSS) to make the links match your mockup. 
    Here's a W3 Schools tutorial that you may find helpful. It's not Squarespace specific, but it should get you started.

  22. paul2009's post in How to deduct shipping cost for in-store pickup? was marked as the answer   
    There's now a specific store pickup option, so you don't need to add a delivery option called pickup. Pickup options aren't selected by default, so you won't face the issue of a user accidentally defaulting to the free pickup option.

    For more information, see: Local pickup.
  23. paul2009's post in 'Site not set up to process payments' Help Needed from South Africa! was marked as the answer   
    It will be a challenge to use Squarespace for online sales in South Africa. PayPal doesn't support South African Rand (ZAR) and, although Stripe support Rand, they do not support businesses that are entirely based in South Africa.
    Stripe and PayPal are the only payment processors supported by Squarespace. It isn't possible to integrate other payment processors, which means that you cannot use PayFast's API for example. You could add third party "payment buttons" but the third party platform will need to handle the entire order process in addition to the payment. This guide may help to explain: Using Squarespace in South Africa with PayFast, Netcash or Rave.
  24. paul2009's post in The main image on my homepage often doesn't show, anyone know why? was marked as the answer   
    I am not seeing any image issues, on any device or browser tested. That said, if you do experience issues, it's worth reaching out to Squarespace Customer Care, as there's nothing that forum users be able to do to fix it.

  25. paul2009's post in Charging a Service Fee for Credit/Debit Card purchases under a Minimum Total was marked as the answer   
    There isn't a specific feature for this. 
    Most POS merchants simple explain that they don't accept card payments below a certain threshold, and that seems to work. Does that not work for them?
