Any way to add video to 7.1 gallery sections along with the images?

Recommended Posts

just ran into this problem  - seriously Squarespace why would you remove such an important function? we had this in 7.0, our entire website is built on this but we opted to upgrade to 7.1 for another function and now it seems our website is screwed. 

This is poor service squarespace. Can you please recommended a new website provider as I am completely over just how useless squarespace has become.

I've been a squarespace user for years. 7.1 seems like it was really badly planned, which is odd considering how much the company has grown and how much revenue they seem to have. Issues like this are making me consider switching to webflow.

Totally agree! I'm going to jump ship if I can't do a video gallery soon.

Hi Seekingsquarehelp,

While at the moment it isn't possible to add videos to gallery sections in Squarespace 7.1, you may want to consider adding a .gif (animated) image to the gallery section as a workaround. Check this great Squarespace help article for more details:

Using animated .gifs

Could we have an update adding video galleries again? Why did you remove it in the first place? When will it be back? Thinking about changing services.

7.1 is truly mind-boggling and I have to chime in that this feature needs attention ASAP. I've spent wayyy too much time trying to figure out what is available in different areas of the new layout.

Interestingly, you actually CAN still add Video into a Gallery, but ONLY within a Blog Post, not within a Page. Is it possible there is just an accidental omission of this feature?

I've spent the last 3 days migrating all my Blog Posts to Pages, based on advice from SS help support. Now I find out a basic feature of Galleries is not available on Pages. Please consider giving this attention.
