  1. I have enabled rich pins so that when people pin images from my blog using my Pinterest Save Button, it fills in all the extra metadata from Squarespace, like the post title, post description, alt text, etc. I used this article to do it: https://thirtyeightvisuals.com/blog/pinterest-rich-pins-squarespace?fbclid=IwAR3MihzgrQd1XZXzwaOL5uoOftb4gzWsqe8oW-6CHzcgmhzVrk16fcKL9wA It works kind of well. Sometimes certain pins don't follow the rules. Like, in that link she shows how to make the author default to "My Name | My Blog Name" instead of simply "My Name". It only works about half the time; some pins will say the correct author and other pins still just say "My Name". Whatever, I can deal with that. Sometimes the title is not the blog title like it's supposed to be, which is a little more annoying, but it's an infrequent problem I can also deal with. But, I want to be able to change the description. Using the above, the main description defaults to my blog post description, and the secondary description defaults to my image alt text. Leaving alt text as-is is fine, but for the main description I want to create my own special description for the pin, mainly because some of my blog post descriptions are really long, I'd like the pin description to be more succinct without having to change my blog post description. Also I want to add hashtags to my pin description. I know on Wordpress they can edit data-pin-description, alt text, data-pin-title, data-pin-url, data-pin-media, etc etc when they upload an image. Squarespace users have no automated way of doing this, but I figured there must be a way to do it manually. So then I found these instructions: https://www.untangledbiz.com/blog/2018/11/7/why-alt-text-not-the-right-place-for-pin-descriptions This also....kind of works. I can put in the correct image and URL, but none of the other metadata tags populate correctly. Data-pin-description fills in the secondary description that's in small text at the bottom (which is usually just the image alt text), instead of the main description. What I'm wanting to edit is the main description. Using "alt="insert alt text here" doesn't work at all to change the alt text area back to what it's supposed to be. Data-pin-title doesn't work at all either, it's still defaulting to the blog post title. (This is a brand new tag Pinterest is implementing so maybe I shouldn't expect data-pin-title to work yet, but my Wordpress friends have gotten it to work). Any other ideas? How can I change my pin descriptions to something custom instead of just the blog post description? Doesn't seem like it should be this hard. Should I just give up and accept whatever the rich pin format gives me?
  2. Can anyone suggest how to change the blog layout for the Native template? I would like the Date/Title flush with the upper left, in one line, not two, placed above the post, and remove the need to place any text there. Also, the metadata of Likes/Share removed. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi, all - wondering if it's possible to display tags for a blog post in addition to/separately from other metadata (e.g. category, date), and elsewhere on the page. Context: I'm using the Brine template. Under "Site Styles," you can set "primary" and "secondary" metadata to display on any given post — and you can only display two metadata types. By default, those two pieces of metadata display under the blog post title, as below (here, I'm displaying Categories and Date). Question: What I'm wondering is — is it possible to, in addition to the "Primary" and "Secondary" metadata you can set in Site Styles, display a third metadata type (e.g. tags), elsewhere on the page (e.g. at the bottom of the post)? I'd love to be able to have a display at the bottom of a post, near the previous/next links and social share buttons, that lists the post tags (e.g. Tagged under: Thing 1, Thing 2, Thing 3). Is it possible?
  4. I'd like to change the font size of the author name and categories in my summary blocks. I've already used the following CSS to change the font size of excerpt text: .sqs-block-summary-v2 .summary-excerpt p { font-size:16px !important} But I need something more for the metadata. Thanks!
  5. I have been trying to change the thumbnail that shows up when I share my site on facebook. Only thing I get is the image I've uploaded in my page settings. That image happens to also be the main banner for the page. I want that image to stay the same but want a different one when I'm sharing my site on facebook. I've tried inserting code in the header, the facebook debugger recognizes both images, but I can only choose the main banner image thumbnail and not the different one I want for it. Please let me know if there is a fix for this.
