Factory reset my site?

Recommended Posts

I'm just getting started with Squarespace. With very little discretion when I set it up I randomly picked a design template. I didn't like it after a while, but I couldn't figure out how to pick a different one. So I mucked about with the styles to try and fix it and ended up in a dark place where I now hate my site. Is there a way to wipe the slate clean and start all over again from the beginning? Like a factory reset?

There isn't a reset button but you can simply start another free trial using a different design. You'll find the starting points here.

As @paul2009 mentions there isn't a reset button to get you back to where you started when you created the site.

However there is a Restore to Default Themes button which resets theme colors to a default as chosen by SS.


This feature is really mostly useful if you want to get to ground zero and design your own color scheme for your site or have a test site.

paul2009's suggestion is the best unless you want to DIY.
