  1. Site URL: https://www.natureinstitute.org Hi, I'm doing admin on a large site and it looks like it size is affecting the search functionality. I know this because the site has something like 500 pages and if I duplicate the site and erase half of them, which I've done, the search bar works fine on the smaller version of the site. But... I need all those pages so that's not an option. The only thing I can think of is to tell users when they use the search bar that they might have to do it 2 or 3 times till they get the right results (which does work), or they might have to go back out to google to search the site. Both of these are inelegant and mildly embarrassing, but I can't think of what else to do. That said, I'm currently using the embedded search feature (as opposed to creating my own link and search page) and when people use it they're taken to a page that I didn't create... it's just the search results landing page. But that's the page I'd like to leave a message on. Does anyone know if that's possible? (If's that confusing, you can take a look at my site https://www.natureinstitute.org/ and the search bar is in the top right of the home page. If you search something, then the page it takes you to is the landing page that I want to add a message to.) (I know I can create a search item in the menu bar and it will take me to a search page that I can then add a message to, but I'd rather not add another item to the menu bar if I don't absolutely have to.) Thanks!
  2. Site URL: https://imagineinternet.net/signup I want to create a dynamic address lookup feature for my squarespace site! I can't figure this out...!!! I want the customer to be able to see if we provide service to their address. I like how the example provided autopopulates an address that they service in the dropdown: https://imagineinternet.net/signup If we don't provide it (to a database of addresses I can fill in in the backend), then I want them to be able to request service at their address. Would really appreciate any suggestions, thank you very much!
  3. Site URL: https://www.jonathanmelrod.com/archive Trying to add a search block to this page. Options allowed are only the "side-by-side blog", titled "news". I would like the search block to only cover the page it is on, "Archive". I'm at a loss for how to do this from the tools provided. Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
  4. Site URL: https://miguelmateas.com/daily-picks Good morning! Does anyone know how to edit the placeholder text in the search box from "Search" to something else? Thank you in advance of your help! Miguel
  5. Site URL: https://www.louisrakovich.com/ My website is a portfolio site so mostly consists of images. But NONE of the images on the site are showing up in Google images results, whether I search for my name, page names, text from pages, image descriptions or file names. How to fix this??? Obviously if this can't be fixed, it makes Squarespace useless as a portfolio site platform.
  6. Site URL: https://www.leshopretro.com/search?q=lomography Hi, I'm having some troubles customizing my search results page. I would like the page to only display images but I don't get why the links from my products don't display images but only text. I'd like to have a grid with images and titles only. Can someone help me with that ? Cause at the moment the page looks quite messy. thanks !
  7. Hi all, I just ran into the searchable database issue with a client. He has a list of insurance policies on google sheets and wants it to be searchable on their website. Basically the page would have two fields "Policy Number" and "Client name" and a "search policy" button. The report generated is supposed to display three types of info from the spreadsheet: "Policy type", "Expiration date" and "Status". Ideally the data has to be secured and not expose the info of other clients. P.s. I'm not a programmer but I'm trying to figure out a way to solve this.
  8. Site URL: https://www.disordergallery.com I am trying to change the colour of the text in my search bar from white to black. how would I do this?
  9. Site URL: https://www.mhsfantasypokerleague.com Hey there, I've had quite the trouble wrestling with something that I (stupidly it seems) thought would be a lot easier than it's turned out to be for a layman web builder anyway.. data tables. I have a need in what I'm doing at the moment to have a HUGE amount of data.. maybe 500 pages worth of names and prices that needs to be organised into a searchable data table for use by my site's members. Took me forever but I finally have the thing able to search perfectly fine. I was overjoyed at that but then I quickly realised that function is near useless to me if my table is a thousand miles long running down the page. So now I'm completely stuck in as far as knowing how I make this table in a way it can be divided up into pages like.. 1/2/3/4/10/20/30 etc.. of about 10 or 20 each page and still be searchable as it is now. Haven't found anywhere on the web that can explain to me how to do this without it getting verrrry complicated and way over my head. Tried to install Jquery at one point and just lost in stuff I didn't understand. I don't know how to code.. I can just cut and paste code and tweak CSS and HTML in small ways that I can comprehend. ** A seperate side issue I have is I can't get my table headers to display on the page.. when I edit them in the edit screen on Squarespace I see them but not when I save it out. Very odd. I've got around this by putting my headers in a text column above the table but this "solution" is inelegant to say the least, not to mention does not line up with the data in the columns. Anyway if anyone can point me in the right direction please let me know what I should be doing from here. Thanks in advance, Marley A test page where I'm working on the data table can be found here. https://www.mhsfantasypokerleague.com/fantasy-betting-markets-test-page
  10. Site URL: https://www.preppingdeals.net/ I would like to center my search bar in between the navigation links and social media icons. As you can see it is slightly to the left. I would also like to slightly expand it, width-wise.
  11. Site URL: https://cargofilm-staging.squarespace.com/films I created a site with 100+ films in 7.0 using index pages. I typically name the pages as Index = film name and pages within the index as film name banner / film name details. for example: Gabi (index) Gabi Banner (page) Gabi details (page) I tried to change the page name and urls to remove the film name but it still shows in the search. Is My problem is trying to limit the search to this page https://cargofilm-staging.squarespace.com/films (password: cargo) I've inserted the site wide search to the header and I've also added the search and limited it to the releases gallery which is where the poster images for the films are and where they are then sorted by tag and category to the individual pages. My goal is to limit the search to the content on the FILMS page that would be equivalent to Command F on a Mac. Is there any solution for this HTML/CSS or perhaps a plugin or to limit the search to only the Index not the pages below? I was able to find the code to limit search results from the blog which is where the press is. Any help would be very appreciated. I can't believe this is so challenging. Thanks!
  12. Site URL: https://www.harborcarenh.org/ Hi folks, Longtime fan, first-time caller here. I inherited responsibilities for a Squarespace website and am much more familiar with Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, but I've found this forum a huge help. The native Squarespace search engine on this website doesn't work well. I suspect this is due to the architecture of the website -- with LONG index pages containing many other pages, the end result being that the core is somehow confused -- but I thought a workaround would be to install a Google Programmable Search on the site. I've always found that using Google products improves search results, but that may be voodoo. Unfortunately, I can add the code for this search bar to inside pages (and they load fine), but whenever I bring those pages to the primary navigation or footer position, the system loads a page without the search. Again, this is a guess, but I believe this is an AJAX loading issue conflicting with the Google script. This is what the Google code looks like: <script async src="https://cse.google.com/cse.js?cx=93d5adf5b23ee11a5"></script> <div class="gcse-search"></div> Has anyone experienced this issue? Or can anyone suggest why the Squarespace search engine is fairly inept? Thanks, Randy
  13. Site URL: https://www.preppingdeals.net/ It's been this way even before I had a lot of posts. It's nearly unusable because it takes so long to query a search. https://www.preppingdeals.net/
  14. Site URL: https://daoethicalgifts.com/search I recently included site search for our website. Apparently, Squarespace sets this type of page to "no index" per default by putting a block in the robots.txt. (Link to description in Squarespace help section) Now, Google Search Console tells me that this is the wrong way to do it: "If you do want to block this page from Google Search, robots.txt is not the correct mechanism to avoid being indexed. To avoid being indexed, remove the robots.txt block and use 'noindex'" I am worried about the Squarespace default settings having a negative impact on our ranking. (How) can I manually change the settings? Or is this nothing to worry about? Any recommendations or experience values are much appreciated!
  15. Site URL: https://www.dextersupplier.com/searchpage Hey guys... I've been using the SearchIQ site's search engine and so far it was the best alternative I found because the Squarespace search is very limited to webstores. I recommend trying SearchIQ, there are many customization options and the best one is undoubtedly the possibility to configure submit suggestions for errors and configure synonyms (this is very useful!). You can find out about SearchIQ here: https://www.searchiq.co SearchIQ allows customization by CSS, so I'm asking for help with a template that I found and would like to configure by CSS in Squarespace. Model link: https://codepen.io/takaneichinose/pen/ErGwPZ My site: https://www.dextersupplier.com/searchpage If that's not possible, I appreciate your help to at least leave the searchbar centered with 1200px(for long titles to occupy only one line) and a rounded edge like the one in the example. Thanks in advance...
  16. Site URL: https://www.britannia.smokd.co.uk/ Hey, hoping someone can help out. I've been struggling with indexing issues for site: britannia.smokd.co.uk for a couple of months now. At first google would not index it at all. Squarespace support tried several times to help, by regenerating sitemap etc, but ultimately with no luck. Eventually, going via our google ads account, I managed to chat online with someone at google, who, despite it not relaly being within the bounds of the 'allowed' chat reasons, did take all of the details and say he will look at it. A month or so following this chat, we have now appeared in SERPS, but with pretty poor ranking, and no MetaTitle or Description, despite these both being set, and defined on the page (which I have confirmed viewing source). (shown below) Also, if I search for most keywords that I know are present on the page, they are, apparently not being seen by google e.g. site:britannia.smokd.co.uk bbq (https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Abritannia.smokd.co.uk+bbq&sxsrf=ALeKk01cr13Hfkhbss8cB7g-PEE_2XkB7A%3A1627920350081&ei=3hcIYcXBBMKW8gLauYagAQ&oq=site&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYADIECCMQJzIECCMQJzIECCMQJzIECAAQQzIHCAAQsQMQQzIECAAQQzIKCC4QxwEQrwEQQzIKCAAQgAQQhwIQFDIECAAQQzIOCC4QgAQQsQMQxwEQowI6CwguEMcBEK8BEJECOgsILhCABBDHARCjAjoLCAAQgAQQsQMQgwE6BAguEEM6EAgAEIAEEIcCELEDEIMBEBQ6CwguEIAEEMcBEK8BOggILhCABBCxA0oECEEYAFD7jwtY35ULYMKfC2gAcAJ4AIAByAOIAc8HkgEHMS4zLjQtMZgBAKABAcABAQ&sclient=gws-wiz) Throughout, I have been attempting to re-index the page in search console with no success - the indexing request is often rejected and then gives no further information as why - and even says the url isn't available on google - which it obviously is (if only poorly) - screenshot also below. I am thinking that there must be something preventing google from seeing the content on the page, but really can't work out what - there arent robot.txt files blocking access, and the content is in theory easily seen - certainly to a user. It is a single page site, which possibly isn't helping, but we really don't need other pages currently. It's built using a standard 'page' rather than a cover in squarespace, which means I've had to set this as a 'non-linked' page - but squarespace have confirmed this is correct and should not be causing these issues. Hoping someone may have had similar (and resolved) as when even google don't seem to have sorted, I'm starting to lose faith! Thanks in advance, Tom
  17. Site URL: https://violin-puma-x79z.squarespace.com/directory Password: temp Hi, I'm trying to change the color of the the 'Search' font when it is static and not being hovered over. The current grey color makes it hard to see (as shown in screenshot) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best, Andrew
  18. Site URL: https://www.spiritofhealthkc.com/ For several months now our search bar has not been working properly. We have a title called, "Best Practices For Avoiding & Combating Viruses" but if you search the full title these ways, it says it can't find anything: "best practices for avoiding & combating viruses" "best practices for avoiding and combating viruses" "viruses" "Best Practices For Avoiding and Combating Viruses" However, if you write it exactly how the blog is written with the same punctuation (caps and & symbols), it will show up "Best Practices For Avoiding & Combating Viruses" or "Viruses" This happens with all of our blogs. I've reached out to Squarespace numerous times over the last few months about the issue. They've re-indexed the site several times and below is their most recent response. Is anyone else dealing with this? Any ideas on what is going on? "After taking some additional time to investigate, I can confirm the issue you're seeing with the built-in search bar is due to an issue on our end. In this case, the issue is preventing partial phrases or keywords from returning results. In order to view a specific post in search results, the exact title needs to be entered. I can also see you previously reported this issue in February, 2020 on a separate email request and can confirm we have noted your sites instance of this issue for our Design and Engineering teams to review. They’ll use this feedback when implementing fixes and improvements in future releases." "This bug's impact will vary depending on a number of factors like the type of site, the volume of content, how visitors navigate the site, and the ways the content is promoted or organized. For example, a lot of sites may never experience this behavior because of their site's structure/content or how often their visitors dig up older posts. For your site in particular, it looks like all of your posts are on a single Blog Page with posts dating back to 2014. If your visitors are frequently searching for older posts, you may want to consider creating multiple Blog Pages so you have an additional layer of organization - Blog Page, Category, Tag. Also, since the Blog Page and Summary Blocks display posts in chronological order, you may want to create a tag/category specifically for these popular posts. You may also want to consider hiding the Search Block from your Navigation due to its inconsistent results. You can do this from Design > Site Styles > Header:Layout > Search Position > Hide. This will encourage visitors to explore the other links and pages you've set up for finding this content."
  19. Hello all, is it possible in 7.1 to have a Magnifying Glass Icon on in Header and if you click it you see the big search bar site. And is it possible to change the big search bar in the style link in the image (without the border) Thanks for help. Best
  20. Hello! Is there anyway to customize search result page? I have Rally template. I would like to have only photos in search result, without any titles, texts or anything. Does anyone know how to hide them?
  21. Site URL: https://somniferummerch.com/search?q=undergang Hi there Can someone tell me how can I make the title of the product normal not italic and remove the link that appears in the end of the search result. Thank you
  22. Site URL: https://explore.fatmap.com/privileges Hi all, apologies if this has been asked before. We have this page on our website, https://explore.fatmap.com/privileges, where we have a long list of partners that offer certain deals and promotions with us. As you can see, we have just added the logo and description of the offer for each partner and the list is quite long. We'd simply like the ability to have a filter or sort option at the top of the page, where a user can choose to only see "skiing brands" or "watches" or "magazines", and it then filters/sorts the brands and offers on that page for them to only show them what they are looking for. I've had a play around with creating each partner as a product, or as a blog post, but I just can't quite get it to work as we'd like! And tips would be great, thanks!
  23. Site URL: https://steven.squarespace.com/clients Hello, I'm trying to replace the default placeholder text inside the Search block to something else using custom CSS. Thank you in advance.
  24. Site URL: https://cinnamon-gold-cr9n.squarespace.com/ Hey there, I'm building a website for someone that is using a lot of affiliate links. Instead of selling her own items, we are using blogposts to show a picture and the source URL for the affiliate link. On the pages of the website, this is working as planned. But she wants to make it so that when someone searches, the results show a lot like the summary blocks that we use for the regular listings. Ideally we would be able to show blog thumbnails in a grid, and that when someone clicked the image or title, it would take them to the source URL rather than the blog itself. I've attached a screenshot of the current layout. The website is at https://cinnamon-gold-cr9n.squarespace.com/ and the password is "known". Thanks in advance for any help!! Seth
  25. Site URL: https://www.gwyl.org/ Hello, I've verified my site with Google console, I've submitted sitemaps, I've checked my robots.txt and yet still my site isn't appearing on Google. In Google Console it says some of my urls are indexed but still when I look nothing comes up in a search (see image). My site is now two months old, I was holding out thinking it was just a matter of time but it's still not working. I don't know what the problem could possibly be! Any help would be so appreciated.
