Editing My Site With My URL

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

I access my site's editor by using my URL +/config and logging in. Squarespace, however, then revers that to a squarespace.com subdomain URL (color-color-gibberish.squarespace.com) and all the links in my site then use that subdomain URL while I'm editing. 

This makes it difficult to capture true page URLs to add to my posts and pages.

Is there a way to make it use my actual URL?

This is normal and cannot be changed.

When you're adding internal URLs, never include the domain name; always start with the first "/" character after the domain name. For example, "/about" or "/store/p/productname".
