Logo and Title Customization

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.bermanpictures.com

I designed my photography website so that my email and phone contact links are from custom code. The code worked before, but I just discovered that now it doesn't.

I would rather not use Squarespace's email link option through Pages-->Primary Navigation because the placement, color, and type size do not work in my design. So I added it to the Tagline of the Site Title.

Pasting the code I am currently using below. Does anyone know if there's a way to alter this code so that the links will again work?

The website is bermanpictures.com. You'll see I inserted multiple  's to make the spacing that looks right.

<a href="mailto:mb@bermanpictures.com">email</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="tel:917-415-1766">+1&nbsp;917&nbsp;415&nbsp;1766</a>

I think that's correct, but I am not at all knowledgeable about this stuff.


Thanks for any help! Michel

I'm having the exact same problem, Michael. Had several custom code links in the Tag Line part of Logo & Title. They've worked since I first created the page. Now they don't.

Squarespace support explained that updates to the platform can cause custom code to break or behave differently. Super frustrating. 

Here's the code that used to work for my site in the Tag Line:

Wouid love to figure out how to alter the code to make it work. If anyone has a solution, would be wildly appreciated.

To provide specific help, we need to be able to view the site. It's really helpful if you can provide a link. However, Squarespace has been steadily improving site security, and this involves blocking code (such as the HTML you showed above) from text entry boxes, so it is likely that this is now being blocked.

The alternative way to achieve this is to write some JavaScript that will add the link to the site title after the page has loaded, but (for the benefit of anyone reading this) it is only possible on a Business Plan or above.
