Recommended Posts

We’re excited to launch our monthly product release notes, “What’s new at Squarespace,” to keep you up to date with what’s new and improved at Squarespace. We’ll be bringing you a recap of the big product news at the end of each month. 

Since this is the first post, we’ve included some highlights from the summer. Moving forward, these posts will only include updates from the last month to ensure we’re always giving you the latest.

We’d love to hear from you! Let us know which updates you’re excited about. 



Checkout settings: same function, new look
