Apply custom CSS to scheduling block


Franmc

Question

I'm trying to edit the font size and general style of the scheduling block. I've tried doing this by referencing the block id in the Custom CSS panel and then adding code, as per this article https://www.kayleighnoele.com/blog/how-to-target-edit-and-apply-css-to-a-specific-block-on-squarespace but it's not working.

Any suggestions as to how I target the scheduling block for CSS?

It's not a specific problem though, can you just make some suggestions? I'd rather not make the website available to anyone just yet as it is proprietary info

ok I understand

The Squarespace Custom CSS panel will not affect anything within a Scheduling block. This is because Scheduling is a different product, built on a different platform. In Scheduling, there's a separate Advanced CSS panel where you can add CSS, but it's only available on the highest Powerhouse plan ($45/$50 per month). 

For more information about CSS and Scheduling, see https://developers.acuityscheduling.com/docs/css-customization

I understand the need for different product tiers but paying an extra $30-40 just to alter a font size seems unreasonable, especially as this is an accessibility issue that should have been considered when the block was designed. Some of text is also cut off in the drop down menu field. Is there a way to work with the Scheduling developers to address this? I have no other design requests other than the font should meet accessibility criteria and not be inherently obscured.

I completely agree.

I spoke to Squarespace about this last week and their response was "It's true that CSS..is currently only available on the Powerhouse plan. I'll definitely take this back to the larger product team as we work to make customization easier for everybody."

I recommend that you also contact them by submitting a feature request for this with the Scheduling team.

Hi Paul,

Thank you so much for your help. I've sent the acuity developers an email also.

I think the main point here is that not having a font size option in the basic plan is quite problematic in terms of accessibility.  Given that this is such a key interactive element in any website, it's really an oversight I think. There is a lot of padding in the default design and therefore plenty of space to accommodate a larger font size.

Let's see what we can get done!

Frances
