Switching Templates

Recommended Posts

Hello. Wondering if anyone could help or point me in the right direction. I have an existing website for my photography using the Wells template. I wanted to switch to the Kevin Matsuya template, but Squarespace doesn't allow me to do this. Does anyone know if it's possible? Or will I have to start a whole new site then switch my domain? Any help would be greatly appreciated - thank you!

Wells is a Squarespace version 7.0 template. Matsuya is built on Squarespace version 7.1 instead. 

To migrate from a version 7.0 website to version 7.1 you'll need to set up a new site, recreate your content, and cancel your original site.

This guide explains how to do this: Moving from Squarespace version 7.0 to version 7.1 checklist.
