It will depend on which version of Squarespace you are using. Log on to your website and navigate to Design.

If you see a Template menu option within the Design options then you are using Squarespace 7.0. Clicking Template will show you the template name and other details.

If you don't see a Template menu option 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.
