Hey Squarespace, this is not how css should be like.

Recommended Posts

I am volunteering for this organization and it’s really taken me several weeks to figure out (real time) to figure out how to target css to individual Squarespace components. While it’s really helpful to be able to target the individual components of html with the IDs, we should be able to write regular semantic css without needing to know the exact ID for each block. That said, if that’s what we need to do, fine. I have also found it’s possible to target an entire block as well with IDs. 

Please stop autogenerating so many <div> tags. It makes the CSS unnecessarily complicated. You should have an html/css expert look at your auto generated tags and they should be able to fix it. 

If it’s this complicated for me and I’m intermediate/advanced, imagine how hard it is for the non coders that use this service. Please at least have a manual. You can actually target position with css, it’s not that limited. You just need to know what to target.
