Can't find the "design" option. Only seeing a limited number of options here.

If you are the owner/creator of the site then you should contact Squarespace as it appears something has gone wrong.

If you are not, then you don't have Administrator privileges and you need to contact the site owner to get them.

It wouldn't hurt to reload the page if you are site owner to see if that clears a potential issue.

On the left I don't see some options like "design" and "settings" etc. I'm added as a contributor.

You will only see the Design and Settings options if you are the Owner or an Administrator of the website.

Other contributor roles like Billing, Website editor or Store manager do not have access to these options. If you need access to the Design and Settings options you will need to contact the site's Owner or an Administrator to request Administrator permissions.

I am trying to get into the design panel so I can add custom code so that my homepage color and blog post colors aren't the same.

Hi, Custom Code location has moved. You can find it under Website -> Website Tools (Scroll down) -> Custom CSS.

Hello, I am experiencing this same issue, however I am the site owner so am unsure why "Design" isn't showing in side panel.

Here is a screenshot of what I'm seeing: 

Am I missing something?
