Annoucement Bar changes not saving

@HollyDavis1210 This is currently a bug (since March 13th). If you paste text into the Announcement Bar it would normally be stripped of its formatting. Unfortunately this isn't happening right now, so if you paste in something that is H1 sized, the Announcement Bar will become enormous. Squarespace recommend the following workaround

  • Delete all text contents of the field
  • On empty formatted field, Select all ( Command + A )
  • Delete again to remove formatting

There is currently a bug in the Announcement Bar settings panel. It was acknowledged on 14 March last year!

It should only be possible to paste "plain text" into this box, but it is currently accepting "formatted text". In your case, the text includes HTML that tells it to look like a h3 header.

It can be tricky, but it should be possible to remove the formatting by

  • Deleting all text contents within the box
  • On the empty formatted box, Select all ( Cmd A or Ctrl A depending on Mac/Windows )
  • Delete again to remove formatting

It may take a few attempts to do this. Once the formatting has been removed, it should display correctly.

div#announcement-bar-text-inner-id h3 {
    font-weight: bold;
}
