Glitchy Squarespace!

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts


My Squarespace went glitchy all of a sudden. Whatever I add in CSS, it doesn't work. Some of the code that I added previously still works but half of it doesn't

Like the custom font for bold headings is working. But the custom code for normal headings isn't working

Any help please?

I removed all code and added a simple line of code. It's still giving me syntax error

I can confirm there is an issue with the Custom CSS panel at the moment (26 July 2023) that is causing several symptoms, including:

  • Syntax error messages are shown when there are no syntax issues
  • CSS is not applied to the live preview. Changes to CSS only show in preview after it is saved and the browser window refreshed.

Update 27 July: Customer Care confirmed "we are experiencing an issue where changes made to a CSS code only show in preview after it is saved and the browser window refreshed".

Update 28 July 09:41 BST: Squarespace confirmed this is a large scale issue affecting many sites. Engineering teams are prioritizing a fix for this as we speak. 

Update 23 August: This is an ongoing bug that has not been fixed.

That said, there is a syntax error in your screenshot above! [bsckground]

Squarespace doesn’t use this forum to track feature requests or bug reports so if you are experiencing issues with the Custom CSS panel, I encourage you to report them to Squarespace directly by raising a ticket through Squarespace Customer Care to raise the profile of this issue.
