I'm an experienced developer, new to SquareSpace. I'm trying to insert a custom HTML block into a page but there is nothing like "Code" or "Custom HTML" in the list of sections I can add to a page. I'm on the $30/mo Basic Commerce plan. I do see places to add custom code to header and footer - but I need to add custom HTML within the page itself.

I've looked at webinars and such but they all look completely different than the UI that I'm given, I'm not sure if they were created with a different version(?) One YouTube video mentioned a "developer mode" under Advanced, but I don't have this on mine.

Ok I found the answer by randomly clicking around on things - its very not obvious and really should be in a guide somewhere!

First you have to click Add Blank, then you click this little gray circle thing that will only show up when you hover over it near the left side of the screen - and from there you can get the Blocks menu that includes code block.
