Site Customization Question

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, I had a question about customization on Squarespace. I noticed that when trying to put blocks in different areas by default it keeps snapping to the grid that Squarespace provides. Is there a way to turn off that grid system or at least be able to put assets in between blocks instead of it always snapping into specific spots?

All blocks must snap to the grid, but the Fluid Engine grid is designed to be responsive and allow you to intuitively position and resize blocks. You can still layer overlapping blocks, and the grid and spacing do have some adjustments available.

Can you describe what you are finding difficult?

The thing I'm finding difficult is if I'm trying to place an asset in the middle or part way into one of the grid blocks. Every time i try to place an asset part-way into the grid it automatically snaps to the edge of the block in the grid.

Can you share a video of the issue? For example, using Loom?

Thanks for the video. Blocks will always snap to the grid. You cannot change this.
