BLOG: Need Help With Custom Code

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.closeitwithkell.com/blog

Hello, 

I reached out to square space in an effort to pretty much mimic the look and feel of the Square Space blog - https://www.squarespace.com/blog. Squarespace informed me that the blog was created using custom code, and was essentially sent to this forum for help.

What I am particularly interested in is the following: 

Header:  I would like to create a header similar to this.  Do you know if it is simply text or an image?

Categories:  I would like to list out the categories on the top

Tagging: The ability for my tags to appear like this.  Right now tags look like the same as the blog post text.

Social Sharing:  I would like to add the ability for visitors to be able to share the block posts.

Hero Blog Posts: How do i add motion to the blog, as you scroll through.  Additionally, how do I structure the posts themselves so that the latest post is the hero.  Like the SquareSpace blog does. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Kellen
