It will depend on which version of Squarespace you are using. If you are using Squarespace 7.0, you can head to Design > Template to see which version 7.0 template you are using.

If you don't see a Design menu then you are using Squarespace 7.1. Although Squarespace have designed a number of 7.1 "starting points" to give you inspiration, these aren't templates. There is really only one template called "Squarespace 7.1". You won't be able to determine which starting point was used.

They are still templates, even by Squarespace's own admission, because you have to pick one or the blank one to create a site. It is backwards, annoying, and condescending not to expose information Squarespace obviously has to the site creator. Squarespace should just tell me what flavor of “starting point” my template ID, in the source code, corresponds to. Instead, they send creators on snipe hunts through posts like the one linked above, and force us to have frustrating forum conversations like these.

If you are using Squarespace 7.1, there is only one template ID, as it is the same ID for all Squarespace 7.1 sites.

There was a (relatively) recent update that means now it is very easy to find out which Squarespace template your site is using. 

  1. Open the Pages panel for your site
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the panel.
  3. You’ll see the version number

I recently updated my blog post with instruction video on how to check your Squarespace version.
