V7.0: Can no longer add spacer blocks

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

This happened recently. The site is on v7.0 Brine family.

Usually I click on the +, select Spacer, and the empty block appears.

Now, after clicking on +Spacer, nothing appears.

But, the bin icon appears in the top left corner of the page.

 

ALL MY OLD SPACER BLOCKS THAT I USED TO FORMAT ARE GONE. The text boxes's dimensions can be adjusted by moving the boundary lines with the mouse cursor. IIRC previously I used the spacer blocks to do things like that.

 

It looks like it's a weird blend of 7.0 or 7.1? I could be wrong, but the workflow is very messed up.

 

What happened, what am I doing wrong here?

First, I recommend that you check if Custom CSS is affecting them. You can temporarily remove it to check. If it isn't, please contact Squarespace Customer Care directly for advice.

OH! No, thanks again @paul2009!! There's some code in there:

 

.sqs-block {
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
  	margin-left: 0px;
  	margin-right: 0px;
}  

.comment-input {
   color: #000000 !important;
 }

.chevron {
  transform: scale(0.5, 1);
  display: inline-block;
}

.lammay {
  letter-spacing: 0.25em;
  display: inline-block;
}

/* Hyphens */
p, h1, h2, h3 {
 -webkit-hyphens: manual !important;
    -moz-hyphens: manual !important;
     -ms-hyphens: manual !important;
         hyphens: manual !important;
}

Everything else looks like style, except this, I'm not sure why this is there, could this be the culprit??

.sqs-block {
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
  	margin-left: 0px;
  	margin-right: 0px;
}

Very likely.

That fixed it!! Thank you thank you! I recall what I was trying to do now: I was trying to create a grid of images and wanted to remove the gap between them I think, or adjust. the grid, so I used that block of custom code.

That block of code will affect all blocks. You should be able to achieve what you need with some code that targets the images more specifically. The exact code will depend on the page, the blocks you've used and the way they are laid out.
