How to enable Developer mode in my Squarespace website? I heard that it is in Settings/Advanced but i can't even find Advanced option.

The Squarespace Developer Platform (including Developer Mode) was only available on version 7.0 - the previous version of Squarespace. You can still build a new site on version 7.0, but you'll miss out on many of the Squarespace features that are available on the current version - version 7.1:

  • 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

If you are using Squarespace 7.0 (the previous version), you'll find Developer Mode in Settings > Developer Tools > Developer Mode.

Thanks for replying, Paul. I am so glad to meet a Squarespace expert like you. But I am using version 7.1. I am gonna clone my website template code using git command and customize some code parts. In this case, I thought the Developer mode is needed. If there is no longer Developer mode in version 7.1, how can i clone the entire code?  And if you don't mind, could you please share your favorite chat app address such as Telegram, Discord, Skype, Whatsapp etc so we are able to communicate with each other more efficiently? Thanks in advance.
