  1. Right click and View Page Source
  2. Do a find for <body (control - F in Windows or command - F in Mac)
  3. You'll find a line something like this:
    <body id="collection-51c37050e4b0895fa6dc9175" class="collection-type-index homepage view-list">

  4. As you can see, the ID is often the first attribute
  5. In CSS, ID selectors are called with a hash (#) symbol, such as:

Alternatively, when you're in the Squarespace Configuration pages, if you go to the page you'll see the ID in the URL, for example:


You'd then have to add the collection- part back: collection-51c37050e4b0895fa6dc9175

The name is an Anglicised form of the Greek Korvetti — I like to think there’s a little bit of the ancient Hellenic drive in me.

On a mac change advanced settings of your browser to show Develop in Menu Bar. Then open the page on browser, go to view source code and there you can find it.
