Although there are some great classic template designs on version 7.0 of Squarespace, if you're building a new website in 2023 then I strongly recommend using one of the newer portfolio templates on version 7.1.

Squarespace 7.0 has been a great platform for many years, but the templates were designed some time ago (Wexley is nearly 11 years old) and a lot has changed in web technology in that time. If you build your site on an older version 7.0 template it will still look beautiful but you won't have access to all the newer 7.1 features:

  • Improved SEO
  • Fluid Engine - the next generation website design tool.
  • Better language support and integrated third party translation with Weglot. 
  • Colours and consistency are much easier to manage with Colour Themes and section backgrounds
  • Many new design features (too many to mention!) including text highlights, animations, section dividers, background art, new cart icons and more.
  • You can design more quickly by copying content with saved sections
  • You can add video backgrounds hosted on Squarespace (no need for YouTube or Vimeo)

If you plan to sell your work online, 7.1 also has:

  • Store page support for up to 10,000 products (instead of 200 products on version 7.0)
  • New Product Detail Page layouts

Is it easy to convert an existing site to Version 7.1?

Not currently. See Moving from Squarespace version 7.0 to version 7.1.
