Vetting Squarespace for Blog

Recommended Posts

We have a small local company and are wanting to use Squarespace to build a site. In my former career, I used to develop complex custom wordpress themes, so using WYSIWYG is a bit foreign to me in some ways, but we don't have time or current budget to build a huge custom CMS tailored to our business, content nor design wise. 

I'm ready to pull the trigger because of the options I've used, Squarespace seems to be one of the better ones these days... but I can't figure out how to add a blog to my template. Is this because I'm in trial mode? Seems pretty rookie, but it seems like I'm maxed out with a home page, about, services and contact. Will the blog options unlock once I sign up and pay?

I really would like to scope this out before buying a year of hosting, even though it's relatively affordable... but I don't want to scrap my demo site I've been working on because I like how it's setup and didn't want to start over. Can a blog be added to any business Squarespace site, or do I have to use a dedicated 'blog' template?

On Squarespace, a "Blog" is just a type of page. They are fully supported on trials and all plans.

To add a Blog, go to the home menu and click Pages, click the + icon and then click Blog.

For more detailed guidance, see the support article Blogging with Squarespace.
