Hi, I am having the same issue, how exactly do I create a CSS file and declare it?

Thank you 

If you use Notepad or Notepadd++ you can copy all CSS code & paste there > then save it as Cascading Style Sheets file (.css)

Suppose you name it: tlc-design.css

Then you upload this Css file to Squarespace site, follow this


then add this code to Code Injection > Header

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/s/tlc-design.css"/>

The site I'm using is 7.0 and has a current CSS character limit of 128,000. Wondering if 7.1 has a higher limit.

Custom CSS has a 128,000 character limit on both Squarespace 7.0 and 7.1. If you are approaching this limit, I'd respectfully suggest that you have someone peer review your CSS to check that it is well structured. For example, you should try to avoid repeating the same selectors or duplicating media queries.

If you're looking for advice, please post some CSS you have used.
