Hi, folks - about a year ago, I was working on my first Squarespace website redesign for a client. As someone who was/is still more familiar with Wordpress, I was wondering what the best way was to create the new design for my client without (a) messing up their live site and (b) creating lots of complex/duplicative work for myself. In the end, it turns out that working on a new template and redesigning within the "template preview" mode in 7.0 met my & the client's needs just fine. I'm linking the old thread below in case useful for anyone! However, I'm now working on another redesign project in 7.1. I don't like 7.1! 🙂 In particular, I've noticed that templates are gone -- and with no ability to switch templates, we appear to have lost the ability to use that template preview mode as a staging site. So, the question -- how do you redesign a site in 7.1 without affecting a client's live site? Is there anything similar in 7.1 to what 7.0 had, where you could make and preview changes to both design and content in a new template and publish your redesign (as a new template) when it was ready? Have other folks developed workarounds? I know developer mode is also gone in 7.1 now so 🙃🙃🙃🙃
Hi folks: I have a few clients with existing Squarespace sites that would like to redesign those sites. I've thought through most of what we would consider to be best practices and they are probably pretty obvious to you. Looking through the Circle forums, it seems like the best general advice is to spin up a new Squarespace site, build the redesign, and then cancel the old Squarespace site. My specific problem related to this post is with billing. I've done redesigns (Squarespace to Squarespace) before and have been given a partial refund for the unused amount on the old site. In fact, most of the advice I can find in the Circle forum states that partial refunds will be given when trying to redesign a Squarespace site using the "spin up a new site and replace the old one" method (the most recent post I could find was from 6 months ago via a Cirlce Leader). As of today, the support team is now saying that partial refunds will no longer be given for any site after 14 days. So what this means in practice is that if we redesign an existing Squarespace site for a client and that client has — for example — 6 months left on their current subscription, we will no longer be able to ask for a pro-rated refund on the old site when the new site is launched. Am I thinking through this correctly? Has the billing policy changed? Most importantly, are there suggestions you can provide that makes redesigning an existing Squarespace site less painful (beyond the obvious like using the site duplication feature)?
Hey, I recently booked a project to redesign an extensive Squarespace website. My client has a shop and about 10 pages. I have only built brand new websites and many of them. I don't want to mess up her content or have this project take forever. I am pretty sure that her template is on Squarespace 5. I believe she said it was "Devlin" - which no longer exists. What series of steps from start to finish would you take to complete this project? And are there any time saving tips?
Looking to completely redesign my site but behind the scenes and once complete switch it out. How do is this done? Seems when choosing another site layout it requires immediate change.
