  1. Hi! I use events page to list my upcoming concerts, and the put a summary of this on my homepage. The design seems a bit sloppy as the BUY TICKETS link I have made in excerpts for each event end up on different lines according to how much text is in the event title. I can of course make the layout uniform by keeping all titles the exact same lenght - but this is not always so easy to accomplish and if the screen/browser window size is smaller the BUY TICKET lines starts jumping further down if the title it long. Can I apply some CSS to fix this layout issue? site: https://dahlia-chameleon-xdem.squarespace.com/ pass: sketchingsound
  2. When using quick view, the item description excerpt is incorrectly formatting into one squished line with no line breaks, though the full product page clearly has line breaks. Is there a way to fix this with CSS or if not, to remove the excerpt from quick view altogether? Would also love to change the "view full item" text in quick view to a custom font. Thanks in advance
  3. Anyone have an idea how to go about solving this? Is there a another forum, perhaps reddit, a better place to get help? thanks.
  4. Site URL: https://designbycaitie.ca/blog Hey there, I found some code by Inside the Square to create a two-column layout for blog collection pages. It works great, but now my excerpts look wayyy too long, and the category tags take up too much space. Can someone provide code to 1) REDUCE the excerpt to three lines ending in an ellipses, and 2) REMOVE the category tags, both changes on mobile view only? Thank you!
  5. Site URL: https://pufferfish-mauve-jkwn.squarespace.com/new-page-1 Hi! I want a summary list to be displayed with enlarged images and centered excerpt in mobile view. I've added some custom code and sometimes (especially in CSS edit mode) it looks like it's all perfect. But when I exit CSS edit mode and change to full screen the layout changes and the excerpt moves over to the left side. I've attached 2 screenshots so you can see both versions (left side: looking all good in edit mode // right side: shifting to the side in full screen). I used the following code: @media screen and (max-width:640px) { .sqs-gallery-design-list .sqs-gallery-design-list-slide:not(.no-image) .sqs-gallery-meta-container { width: 100% !important; } .sqs-block-summary-v2 .summary-block-setting-design-list .summary-thumbnail-outer-container { width: 100% !important; } .sqs-block-summary-v2 .summary-block-setting-text-size-medium .summary-title { margin-top: 20px; } } .summary-thumbnail-container{ padding-bottom:40px !important } .summary-excerpt{ padding-right:20px !important } .summary-thumbnail-container{ padding-left:20px !important } The problem occurs on all my devices (laptop, tablet, android phone) and on all the browsers that I've tried (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox). So it must be the code but I can't figure it out. Anybody out there who can help me with that?? 🙂
  6. Site URL: https://www.designbycaitie.ca I have blog post summary blocks on my main home page and within every blog post. The excerpts are fine on desktop but are too long and unwieldy on mobile. I haven't been able to find any code that disables/removes the excerpt from mobile view only. Does anyone know how to do this?
  7. Site URL: https://www.moonswordbooks.com/ I post lengthy (1000+ words) articles on my SquareSpace site weekly. I have it linked up to MailChimp so that when something new appears on the SquareSpace site, it gets emailed by MailChimp to the relevant audience, using the RSS feed system. This all works fine. In MailChimp, when you put the merge tage RSSITEM:CONTENT into the email structure, it's supposed to pick up an excerpt of the post, defaulting to 500 words. In fact, it just sends the whole thing, no matter how long. I have searched online and I am not the only person to have this problem, nor have I seen much indication that anyone's found much of a solution. While I work on that end of things, however, it seems to me that maybe I can resolve it on the SquareSpace end. In the Options pane for each post, I can create an excerpt manually. If I could send this through MailChimp, with their "read on..." link going back to the post itself, that'd solve my problems and be much more readable anyway. But MailChimp does not have--or doesn't indicate, anyway, an RSS merge tag that will pick up the Excerpt text from SquareSpace. Can anyone suggest some code which I can substitute for RSSITEM:CONTENT in MailChimp to pick up the Excerpt instead of the total body text? Thank you!
  8. Site URL: https://anahata-coaching.squarespace.com/jaartraining-hsp-op-het-werk Hi, is there any code available to make the summery block tekst excerpt responsive? I use the blog to showcase reviews, but since the reviews don't have the same length I don't like the empty space under the review when it is a shorter one. Especially on mobile. Is there any way to change this? Thank you On every page there are reviews visible, so here's one url: https://anahata-coaching.squarespace.com/jaartraining-hsp-op-het-werk PW: Anahata12

  10. Site URL: http://www.kknomics.squarespace.com/program I'd like to put the excerpt above the title on blog pages/summary, so that the order from top to bottom is image > excerpt > title. Can anyone help me with the required CSS?
  11. Site URL: https://evolutionofbrilliance.squarespace.com/ Hello, I am using the below header code injection to limit summary excerpt's... (this has been successful when inserted into main 'blog' page) <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.0/jquery.min.js"></script> <script src="https://www.jqueryscript.net/demo/Cropping-Text-Without-Breaking-Words-jQuery-Limit-Text/limit.text.min.js"></script> <script> $(function () { $('.summary-excerpt p').addClass('cuttext'); $('.cuttext').limitText({ length: 160 }); }) </script> My issue is with the index homepage as I am using the summary block for a few different sections - in one instance I need the excerpt limited (I want this limited on the orange blog 'latest articles' section) but for blue 'testimonials' section, I need the full excerpt. Is there a way to have these two variations on an index page? Thank you Pw: 123456
  12. Site URL: https://www.jspfinearts.com Hi everyone. I have this code that I've been trying to modify. I want to add a linked text underneath the Accepted Credit Card Logos to a blog post within my site, but I cannot figure out the right code for it. Please help me. Thanks in advance 🙂 -Johan .ProductItem-details-excerpt:after { display: block; content: ""; height: 100px; margin-top: 34px; background: url('https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/591c7c032e69cfd2a044b93f/9eaee896-b9e1-4e65-aba1-4484ed5e7d40/stripe-badge-transparent.png?format=1000w'); background-size: contain; background-repeat: no-repeat; }
  13. Site URL: https://lokalamico.com/wolfgang-vienna-host Hi, I followed this tutorial on how to create a testimonial slider via summary block. Client wants to know if is it possible to automatically put a "Read More..." toggle for long reviews or text that exceed a defined number of characters? It is added via blog settings below Password to the URL provided is mmmm1234 Thanks!
  14. Site URL: https://www.buffalohistorypub.com/ Hi, I'm new to Squarespace 7.1 and I'm trying to create an events calendar. When I go to make my events page / summary block I've created an entry and excerpt. However, I'm not getting a "read more" option with an arrow showing up. This means obviously that people would have to click on the image which is less than ideal. I'm really at a loss on this one – anyone have any ideas on how to get "read more" to appear so that its obvious it is just an excerpt??
  15. Hi all, Does anyone have a way of inserting icons or images in excerpts? I want my excerpt to include information looking like this. https://projectsinsider.com/project/3-rubida-court-endeavour-hills lifeisgood Thanks!
  16. Hi all, I'm building a site for someone who will post a lot of blogs and am trying to work out if there's a shortcut I can build in so that the excerpt can be auto filled with, say, the first 100 words of the blog (saving them the step of the process where they'd copy it over while writing a blog). I realise it'll cut sentences in half, and won't be super pretty... but... I'm building it now so on 7.1, and looking primarily at the summary block (but if it's do-able on the primary blog page, that'd be interesting, too) I'd be super grateful if anyone knew if it was even possible or just out of the question. Thanks!
  17. This has been asked before but for the brine template and not been answered. I need this to work on Squarespace 7.1. Thank you for your help!
  18. Site URL: http://almostallison.com Hi! I was wondering if anyone could help me figure something out. I'm currently using the Five template for my blog. As it stands now, the blog excerpts are laid out with an image on the left and then the text. (I attached a screenshot for reference) I was wondering if there's any way to change this so it shows a larger thumbnail/preview image with text underneath it? Unless I'm missing something, I don't think this template offers a way to do it without adding css, which I'm fine with, just not sure the correct stylization. TIA!
  19. Hi all- How do I display an event's "Excerpt" on its event page without having to type it in twice--once in the "Settings" and again on the individual pages? Basically I want this excerpt info: To display on here, the Individual Event page: I've tried a work around by using JavaScript to pull the OG:Description metadata, but that imposes a character limit that I would like to get rid of. Anyone know the code to have the excerpt (or thumbnail or any of the data entered in "Settings") populate on the page itself? It seems like it should be easy since it is a built in functionality when events or blog posts are used in summary blocks, but I just can't find it anywhere. Thanks!
  20. Hi everyone, I am using "Nolan" template. I have a major issue trying to add a "collection" in the form of a "blog", as I would like to add a "summary" to my home page, linked to that blog. However, when I create posts in the blog, and hit the button "edit", to add tags, excerpts, etc, it goes straight into the page and doesn't allow me to add any tag or excerpts. (I saw many tutorials showing how to add excerpts, but they all have a pop-up window with more options/functions, which I don't have) As a result, my "summary" doesn't display the text I want, nor gives me the ability to display any tags. I am stuck and can't find any help online on this. Anyone is able to assist? Thanks a lot, very much looking forward to sorting this out. O.
  21. Site URL: https://www.insidephilanthropy.com/mental-health-funding-guide-design Hi everyone, I am trying to show a blog excerpt upon hovering over a summary item's title. I thought I would start by showing the excerpt for the summary item, and then figure out how to target it with CSS to hide it, and show it on hover. But I can't figure out how to target a particular summary item. Is it an nth item reference? The example page is just some development data but the first column shows the first summary item's excerpt. The default state will be hidden and only shown on hover. Any pointers on how I can target an individual summary block item with CSS? Thanks, cvm
  22. Site URL: http://www.pisces2021.squarespace.com Hello, I am working on a new site for a client that has already a squarespace site. I duplicated the current size and changed the template from Basil (original site that is currently live) to Brine (the new site I am working in), both of them are of the same family. The site also duplicated the blog. I have a normal page with a Summary block as a blog, and I see the text excerpt in the duplicated site is showing very small. Is there a way to make it bigger, as it was in the original site? It is not possible to change it in Styles site, I already talked about this with Squarespace. I am attaching two screenshots to show the difference in text. Can someone help me? Thank you!
  23. Hello there! I'm incredibly new to all of this, so I apologize that I don't yet have a link to share. Well, I do, but it doesn't have any posts yet! Anyways, I'm trying to figure out how to align my expert text on a blog post to the left instead of the center, but I can't seem to figure it out. I found this answer to my question on the forums: .entry-excerpt.p-summary * { text-align: left; } But when I paste it into the Custom CSS window, nothing seems to change. Any chance someone could help me with this? Thank you!
  24. I am creating a site for someone who does podcasting. We need to be able to add their podcast audio to the blog article list page, so the user doesnt have to click into each article to listen to the next episode. Does anyone know of a way I can add audio or an embed code into the excerpt or another way to get audio or embed code to display on the blog list page?
