Hi! I would really like to add a custom cursor to my site.

I'm only on the personal plan so am not able to inject code into the header. Is this the only way to get a custom cursor? I have tried adding various custom cursor codes to the Custom CSS field on the Design page but no luck with what I've tried so far. Also have tried in the HTML editor when adding content to my pages. No dice.

Please help, if you can!

Use code in this post. https://forum.squarespace.com/topic/70824-override-cursor-with-custom-image/

Don't use cursor image too large, it won't work.

Hi, I am trying to add the following code to have the exact same custom cursor, but I don't know which code I need to copy and where I need to paste it onto Squarespace. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Try adding to Code Injection > Footer

<div class="cursor">
  <div class="cursor__ball cursor__ball--big ">
    <svg height="30" width="30">
      <circle cx="15" cy="15" r="12" stroke-width="0"></circle>
    </svg>
  </div>
  
  <div class="cursor__ball cursor__ball--small">
    <svg height="10" width="10">
      <circle cx="5" cy="5" r="4" stroke-width="0"></circle>
    </svg>
  </div>
</div>
<style>
  body .cursor {
  pointer-events: none;
}
body .cursor__ball {
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  mix-blend-mode: difference;
  z-index: 1000;
}
body .cursor__ball circle {
  fill: #f7f8fa;
}
</style>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/gsap/1.20.3/TweenMax.min.js"></script>
<script>
  const $bigBall = document.querySelector('.cursor__ball--big');
const $smallBall = document.querySelector('.cursor__ball--small');
const $hoverables = document.querySelectorAll('.hoverable');

// Listeners
document.body.addEventListener('mousemove', onMouseMove);
for (let i = 0; i < $hoverables.length; i++) {if (window.CP.shouldStopExecution(0)) break;
  $hoverables[i].addEventListener('mouseenter', onMouseHover);
  $hoverables[i].addEventListener('mouseleave', onMouseHoverOut);
}

// Move the cursor
window.CP.exitedLoop(0);function onMouseMove(e) {
  TweenMax.to($bigBall, .4, {
    x: e.pageX - 15,
    y: e.pageY - 15 });

  TweenMax.to($smallBall, .1, {
    x: e.pageX - 5,
    y: e.pageY - 7 });

}

// Hover an element
function onMouseHover() {
  TweenMax.to($bigBall, .3, {
    scale: 4 });

}
function onMouseHoverOut() {
  TweenMax.to($bigBall, .3, {
    scale: 1 });

}
</script>
