Is there any justification for me using 7.0 rather than 7.1?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Very basic question here... I would like to use Forte as a template, partly because of its sidebar feature in the blog section.

But: is it ridiculous in 2023 to build using 7.0? Is that a decision one may live to regret, especially given there is no way to migrate 7.0 to 7.1 if needed?

Thank you for weighing in on this dilemma in simple terms that a newbie can follow!

I really liked the ability to change templates without doing so much by hand. I wish I could go back to 7.0 for my professional CV/Website, my photo business is still on a 7.0 and its great, you can change layouts and stuff globally without having to micro manage each individual little detail, which was part of what I like about using Squarespace so  much more than other website builders. 7.1 is great if you want more minute control but its honestly maddening to have to go make granular changes as a your website grows and develops over time, I did not realize I had one on each until today and I wish I could go back without having to re-enter all of the info on my professional site. stay with 7.0!
