Confused

Recommended Posts

New here, trying to change the links and font on the top banner and unable to. I know how to write code but can't even find where the code is to alter it. The pop up menus just alter positions. Thanks

now that I am in this I don't know what the template is called, I see I have a few options in the left hand menus but notsure if I am allowed to see the code and modify it, or perhaps I need a business account? I'm used to building from the ground up so not sure what options are available

Hi there, you won’t be able to view your websites code, that’s not really how Squarespace works. You can really only access your websites code if you use Developer mode which I wouldn’t recommend doing. 

I have linked to a support document which should help you identify your template.

It is unnecessary for 99.99% of people. Unless you want to do something complex then you shouldn't really touch it. In addition you will only receive system wide updates and not template specific updates, you will also be responsible for maintaining your template. If something goes wrong or you need help then Squarespace won't be able to provide support.

Changing the some links and font isn't something you need developer mode for. I would take a look at the below support document on making style changes to your website.

Even if you find yourself needing to make changes with CSS or Javascript you can do so without entering developer mode. You can use your sites global CSS and code injector areas.
