Blog summary to appear on a different SQSP site?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I manage websites for an business which owns various brands. These brands have their own websites, all on Squarespace, all have their own news blogs. The master business wants to have the news blogs from it's brands surfacing in a summary block on it's own site. These would then link back to the original content. Any idea home this could be achieved? Would an iframe work for something like this?

Thanks for your time, Matt

An iFrame could work, but they're not a good solution. Republishing the blogs on the master site with a link back to the brand site in the blog settings -> source would be best, but that would involve some more work.

If you are going to use iframe to embedded the external Squarespace website to yours, remember to disable Clickjacking Protection option so the site can be placed inside an iframe

Another 2 cents:
You can grab the other website's blog content using `?format=json` URL param. Check this
https://developers.squarespace.com/view-json-data

Also here are something to consider

- Access the json data from your website will be considered as cross origin request (cors), so you may want to implement a proxy in order to fetch the collection data successfully

- Not all blog items is returned at once, there is a pagination limit at 20 items per request, and you will get the next page cursor in the query and use it for the next chunk request
