  1. Hello, Does anyone know how to align body text to the right, as the redline in the attached image indicates? It would be great if the body text aligned to the right side of the website title "KECK ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN". I am using the "Avenue" template and this is a "Gallery" page (if that's important). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Hi friends Super simple—just trying to find a blank template but can't for the life of me. Is it a matter of choosing any template and just deleting everything? or... Thanks!
  3. Hi. I am new to squarespace. I currently have a domain with GoDaddy but would like to transfer my domain to squarespace and publish what I have already created here. I haven't done this before and I am leery about the transfer. How smooth is the process as far as the email accounts that are linked to the website currently? Once I switch to squarespace, do the email addresses automatically transfer and there is no "hiccup" in the email work flow? Or do they need to be set up again because the current emails will no longer work? I do not want to mess up any of the email accounts. HELP!
  4. Site URL: https://www.kaybeausoleilphotoarts.com/ My Home page has an image with text overlaid. I'm trying to change the image (text would be the same). Two years ago I'd figured out how to do this, but I can't make head nor tail of the instructions I'm finding now (I'm older and way less sharp). Questions: (1) any special format for the image itself other than JPEG? (2) Do I zap the current image, upload the new one to my Home page, then type the text over the new upload? TIA for your help ... Kay. (https://www.kaybeausoleilphotoarts.com/ using Wells template)
  5. Hello. I will open an online travel agency and I will create the website. I already use squarespace for another website, but it's something more basic since it's just about sharing reports and photos of trips I do. Now, when opening a travel agency, it implies having access to many other features and I don't know if squarespace will be the appropriate/possible to do. I want to ask your opinion, someone more experienced, what do you think? To give you an idea, I want to create a website (different, of course), but something like these two that I indicate below: - https://www.introtravel.com/ - https://www.outadventures.com/ Do you think that with squarespace I can get the features that appear on these websites, or would something different be better? I don't need to be told 'how to do it', I just need to know if it's possible because if it is, I'll find out later. Thanks
  6. Good morning all! I am the communications director for a church. We currently have our website hosted on eCatholic but I would like to explore the option of Squarespace. I've sent an email to support as well, but was wondering if this forum could either answer my questions as well, or point me toward the best source for information about the potential of Squarespace. I'd like to know costs, if multiple users can be given access to the site or to controlled portions of the site, if it works with our current linked programs, etc. Thanks all!
  7. Hi all As a newbie here and to websites in general I have a few questions. I am using the 14 day trial and have been given a URL by Squarespace and can see you get a free domain when you sign up to a plan. Do you get a choice over what this name is or is it just the random one they give you on the trial - or do I need to register it elsewhere first? I plan to use the site for ecommerce I currently sell on Etsy but do all my listing from my phone. Adding products from a laptop is not practical because the photos are on my phone. I am aware there is an app could i add products from there or at least the photos of the products? Otherwise I have to download them from google photos on the laptop then upload them. I sell vintage so its not the same repeating product its quite a large inventory. Thanks!
  8. For the new site builders and anyone else actually, just a bit of advice I gave to a member here. I think that this forum has many of the answers to any problems you may have, in additon to Squarespace Technical Support. However anyone who needs help needs to do a few things to help the helplers so to speak. 1. Post your site url including a password if needed. 2. Let us know if you need code and or if you have any on your site now. 3. Be very specific about the problem, in other words what is it not doing you want it to do or what is it doing you don't want it to do. 4. Realize that sometimes a problem is caused by not using the configuration platform properly or to its full potential. 5. Be patient with us folks here, sometimes we have to go to the lab to figure things out. 6. And most of all remember that in the tech world nothing is perfect but can still be pretty good.
  9. How can I add a picture right under the title and before the body text of a blog post?
  10. Decided to have a look at Squarespace as a possible option / alternative for Wix or Shopify. I simple cannot get the trial edit to start. Using Mac, Chrome, Safari ..all up-to-date. Tried clearing cache, extensions and confirmed that Java Script was running. I signed in using my Apple log on, all good. Followed the steps to choose a site template. Nothing, Nada, Zilch... I simply cannot progress past the selection of a template. Can anyone help? I cannot think of any other reasons why both Safari and Chrome refuse to let me in. *tearing hair out*
  11. Site URL: http://superbsnuffles.com First time making a website of any kind and would love some feedback! Just want a site that is clean, simple, and easy to navigate while showcasing my unique and highquality pet products. Thanks in advance!
  12. Not really a Squarespace help question but I have noticed that there have been updates to Squarespace. Like the recent text toolbar color icon and now an accordion block. I am wondering if there is a place these changes are listed? Like a new release or something. Does anyone know where to find/how to be told of these updates and changes? Thanks
  13. So I'm a noob so be gentle. I have a couple of questions. First of all, I have a website that I hate. Looking to redesign. I'm okay design wise and have a vision but very not smart about hosting and all that jazz. I am currently hosted by host gator and have a domain registered through them. They're ok, but they strongly recommended I use Wordpress. I HATE Wordpress with a passion because it's not intuitive at all. So first question, how does Square Space rate in terms of ease of use? Second question is, can I still use host gator or do I need a different hosting service?
  14. Launching a website is an ongoing process and it’s important to celebrate the victories, no matter how big or small! We want to know what milestones you’ve hit. Did you: Write your first blog post? Update your custom logo? Land on the perfect color palette? Increase your social media following? Sell your first product? Send out your first email campaign? Something else? Let us know what milestone(s) you’re proud of! And looking ahead, what milestones do you hope to hit in the near future?
  15. I often have to share this guide. And I did link to the blog, but it's not very good, because the blog is not always stable. So I post it here, so that when I need it, I can tell members to come in and see. If your site is private or trial, you can setup password & share url for someone. Click Settings Next, Site Visibility Next, Password Protected > Enter Password > Save Then copy Site URL and share with friend or developer
  16. Site URL: https://www.jchancecolors.com/ Hi there everyone! I've had my website for a few years now, and I'm really trying to optimize it for mobile. I noticed on PC/Mac, that on my website there's a little arrow that'll take you from one project on my website to the next. However, no such button exists on Mobile. This makes scrolling through my projects more of a chore. Is there a way of adding the Arrow button on mobile? Attached is the picture on the left on the Arrow button I'm referring to. Thanks everyone!
  17. i havent built a site yet... i have one planned www.StreamDeckIcons.com i want to use a kind of forum, for people to make and upload their own StreamDeckIcon packs, to share them. not worried about space, Icon Packs are small, not like it has a huge following yet. i love my stream deck, from elgato. I use it for launching programs, renaming files, powering my photoshop, gaming, particularly for gaming.. i can create a keyboard with Icons for the keys, and when i hit them, they actually do what i want... it is epic i want to share my icon packs with ithers, and i want other to be able to share their Icon packs with others. but i cant find any forum software to use, i'm not selling anything, and i am lost. so what would you advise? i can do the graphix, NO problem. just kind of clumsily stumbling through pages isnt my thing... i am used to using microsoft office to make websites and stuff... dont even know where to begin with that either, as i have never done a forum.
  18. Hi I'm trying to build a site for a small county and have a few specific requirements and was wondering if anyone has any ideas on if it would be possible to custom build a site like this through SquareSpace with maybe SquareSpace Developer? The county wants a page where they can put new county information and news up but also has a focus on commerce, they would like to grant county business owners to a page on the site, without having access to the rest of the site. The business owners are not super tech savvy so they are looking for a solution in which the business owners may just have to fill out a form with their business information to automate edits to their page, as well as pull information from their Yelp profile or their personal websites.
  19. Hi, I opened my account and paid for the plan. To test I loaded one of the free templates and named it the same as the site "Beyond the Dress." Then I found a third party template and purchased it. They installed it but under the billing name as a new website. I want to delete the free template version, but don't have that option on the dropdown. Then I want to rename the purchased site. I've attached a screen of my dashboard and would appreciate any assistance. Thank you
  20. I have started a free trail with square space, i wanted to chooses a template but every time i click on "get started with ... template" the website dose not do anything apart from take me up to the top of the screen and then i cant scroll down again. I have also tried previewing the site the choosing "start with this template" and nothing happens. help would be appreciated, thanks
  21. Hello, I'm trying to "get started" with the base template as per instructions on https://developers.squarespace.com/get-started After installing the dependencies and the local dev server I try to run: npm run start:auth I am not able to log in via the command line. It seems to be the command `squarespace setup` that is failing. The script is POSTing a login request to https://www.squarespace.com/api/auth/Login?crumb=undefined But the resource is returning a 404 which means I cannot log in. Is this a known error? It seems to be a problem with the Auth API and not the base template or the scripts there. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hello, I am just starting out making an online shop in my square space website (Business Plan). The sales tax part, - Is there a way other than having to manually enter in sales tax rates for every zip code in North Carolina, US? - If I upgrade to a square-space - Commerce Plan, will it automate the process and calculate sales tax in real time? - Is TaxJar the only other extension that can do this? Do I still need a TaxJar if I get a Commerce Plan? Is anyone else in the same boat or past this phase? Any other suggestions? Thank you!
  23. Hello there, before I get much deeper trying to design my site can someone please tell me if there is a way to allow visitors to my site to post products to sell? Would this be a commerce function or something else? Along the same lines of like Etsy or Fiverr, hopefully you get my drift. Thanks in advance xo katie
  24. My organisation is planning to transfer our website to squarespace. I have read through the pages about transferring the domain, but I have a few questions. We were hoping to create the new website on squarespace and once it was ready, transfer the domain from the old website. Will we have to build the new website on squarespace during the 14 day free trial? The old website is still active and using our domain, and we want to leave it that way until we are ready to switch so that the website isn't down for weeks at a time. Does anyone have any advice for the best way to handle this switch?
  25. Site URL: https://www.sweetescape.com Hello everyone I just wondering about can i made a website on squarespace exactly same layout as Sweetescape website? I want to move the website into squarespace. Thank you
