help with switching a live site on a 7.0 template to 7.1

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am super confused about switching a website from a 7.0 template to 7.1. 

I created my website a couple of weeks ago, I *guess* in v7.0. This morning. I started a new trial to experiment with a new template, and I *guess* that one is from v7.1? (I am saying *guess* b/c I was given no indication that anything was different, and I selected a template per usual. My assumption would have been that if 7.1 was so dif from 7.0, there should have been some kind of alert, but there was not.) 

My issue is, I would like to switch my live, paid subscription website from the current template (7.0) to the new template (7.1). The domain name would stay the same, I just want to switch the template. I keep reading on here that there are no templates in v7.1, but I know that I selected something this morning! I have already contacted customer care and the person said they could not help me and sent me a dead link (not helpful.) 

Any advice on how to proceed? I have read through online documentation on the Squarespace site and nothing seems applicable to my situation. 

Thanks in advance! jenn.

In regards to people saying 7.1 has no templates. They are technically correct. 

On Squarespace 7.0 choosing between templates was very important as the template you chose limited the styling options for your site. 

On 7.1 even though you can choose between 'templates' when you initially start your site all of these templates have the exact same functionality, so you aren't limiting yourself at all with your choice.

Then what differentiates them? Why even call them templates, then?

It would be to give people inspiration and something to work from. They can keep the layout and just edit the content. 

Personally I remove all of the 'demo' content and start from a blank slate for each of my client's sites.
