Blog Title Loses Focus in Editor

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

When I create a blog I have trouble editing the title.  I can type 1 or 2 letters and the computer loses focus and I have to click back in the title to continue editing.  This was taking me minutes to type a short title and was frustrating.   I have a workaround to type the title in Notepad and copy and paste it into the title.

I have tried multiple browsers and also get the same experience on a PC and a MacBook.

This issue happens on new posts or editing older posts when I want to modify the title.

Any ideas on this issue?

Sadly, this is a Squarespace bug, that they acknowledged on 1 June 2023 but it hasn't been fixed yet. It isn’t something you can fix yourself. 

This video shows me typing "This is me typing a title...":

As you can see, it cuts off half way through when cursor focus suddenly moves away from the title field. 

I used the same workaround as you - typed the title somewhere else and then pasted it in.
