Time-delay appearance of buttons on cover page

Recommended Posts

The following css should be added to the Advanced tab of your cover page settings. 

.sqs-slice-buttons {
  animation: fade-me-in 3s;

@keyframes fade-me-in {
  0% {opacity:0;}
  80% {opacity:0;}
  100% {opacity:1;}


There are 2 sections to the code. 

In the first section you set the total length of the fade in, from invisible to fully visible. It is set to 3 seconds above but you can change it. 

In the second section you can define how long the buttons stay invisible before they start to fade in. In the example it is set so that the buttons remain invisible for 80% of the3s animation duration (2.4s invisible) and then fades in over the remaining 0.6s.

Hi colin.irwin, thanks so much for your answer. For some reason the whole screen is going white? Do you know what can be causing this to happen? I wanted the buttons to fade in after 15seconds so I modified the code you gave me originally but everything goes blank.

Also is there a way to do the same for the title and description?

Thanks 🙂

I was just wondering if this type of code can be applied to the custom CSS page and not just for cover pages. I only want the code to work for one page. 



You can add to Page Header

Does this code injection still work with the new squarespace update? I'm creating a cover page (there's no longer the cover page option, just using the blank page and used a code injection to remove the header and footer) that has a background video play and I want the enter the site button to fade in after the video ends. I tried adding this above code and changing the timing to my desired length but it doesn't seem to be applying (the button remains visible from the start). Any tips? Thanks!
