lost all my CSS

Recommended Posts

I accidentally deleted all my CSS. Is there a backup site or CSS file somewhere that I can access?

I thought I was only selecting a section of my CSS when I accidentally deleted all of it. Is there a back up file somewhere? A rollback maybe?

Any help would be appreciated.

Please post the URL for a page on your site where we can see your issue.

If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so.

Post the password here.

Adding a site-wide password does not allow anyone to alter your site. It only allows those with the password to see your site. Please read the documentation at the link provided to understand how it works.

Please read the documentation at the link provided on how to share a link to your site to understand how it works. A link to the backend of the your site won’t work for us, i.e. a url that contains /config/.

We can then take a look at your issue.

If your Custom CSS is blank and saved there is no backup that I am aware of and Squarespace does not have a rollback feature. Not the news that you want.

In the future, it's not a bad idea to have your own backup of your Custom CSS in a document. Clicking save after deleting your Custom CSS makes it permeant in the same way that saving the page does after deleting content.

Folks, I suggest avoiding fancy word processors as they can add unwanted hidden characters that will mess up code if one pastes code back into an SS field. Ideally you want an app that is designed for code editing or has very simple text processing capabilities.

You might go old school on PC with something like WordPad, I think, I'm not a regular PC user, that is pretty bare bones. On Mac I like BBEdit.
