I have a very simple homepage and I want to include [an animated header]. Is this possible? I have a Personal Plan.

The solution you've mentioned uses JavaScript so you'd need a Business Plan (or above) for this to work on your site. If you're interested in experimenting with it, I recommend you start a trial so that you can play with it on a second site first. Trials don't have the limitation, so you'll be able to check that it meets your needs. 

If you are using Squarespace 7.1, there is a built-in feature called Background Art that is very similar. It allows you to add animated patterns and subtle color gradients and customise them with different shapes, sizes, and motions.

thank you for your response. If I understood you correctly, it will work, so I will upgrade to the Business plan.

I already checked out the Background out and although I like it, the one I posted above looks like something I am more interested in.


Update: I just upgraded and it works quite well 🤗
