I've given all my pages custom URL...but they still display like this when browsing on the website: 

https://www.andreaball.com/.....

It isn’t clear, at least to me, which part of the URL you are referring to.

If you are referring to the custom domain, a Squarespace website has multiple custom domains, only one of these can be used as the Primary Domain. Even if you add additional custom domains, all these domains will redirect to the primary, meaning that domain always displays in the browser address bar no matter which domain visitors use to access the site.

If you are referring to the “slug” (the part after the domain name) then the customisation options will depend on the type of page. The “work” example that you quoted is a Video Page and so slugs for individual videos will look like these examples:

  • /work/v/limecrime
  • /work/v/md-solar

If this doesn’t help, can you explain the issue in a little more detail?
