Adding text UNDER the blog posts section

Recommended Posts

I have a job vacancies page that has been set up using a blog template.

I have some intro text above the job vacancies/blog posts section, but I would like to also add some text BELOW the vacancies/blog posts area – a closing statement and maybe a button so the page doesn't end with a blank space.

I'm not able to do this using the standard site builder tools, so I'm wondering if it might be possible to use custom code to add text below the blog posts section? Can anyone in the Squarespace Forum help please?

Thank you in advance to anyone who can give me an answer either way, just so I don't spend ages trying to achieve the impossible.

If you're using Squarespace 7.1 you should be able to add a new Page Section below the blog posts. If you are using Squarespace 7.0, you can use a Summary Block to display the posts (connect it to the blog page and hide the blog page itself) and then add other blocks below the Summary Block.

Tip: You may find that an Events Page is better for displaying vacancies. You set an expiry date for each vacancy to automatically disappear on the closing date 🙂.

Thank you so much for your help with this (sorry for the delay in responding – I hadn't received the notification that I'd had any replies to my original post)

I should have said I'm using 7.0 so will look into the summary block option  – have used them before, not sure why I didn't think of them on this occasion – thanks for the suggestion.

I'll also look at whether an Events page might be a more suitable alternative too – thanks for the suggestion.

Really appreciate your help Paul. Thanks again 😊
