Struggling to get a video course onto a sales page...

Recommended Posts

I’ve created a course (yay to Squarespace for introducing courses!), now I just need to get that course onto my store page (or, more precisely, a summary block).

When I go into my store, I can’t find the course. I think I understand why this is: Squarespace allows us to make different stores, and courses aren’t included in the regular store. Okay.

I can maybe swing with that, because I don’t even technically use the “store” page on my site — I have a “grab a seat” page (scienceisWEIRD.com/grab-a-seat) which uses summary blocks to filter different items for different sections.

I’d like to (really, I need to) get my new course to show in one of those summary blocks.

When I make a new summary block, I see that I am able to add a course — but instead of showing the course (and letting people buy it), it lists the specific chapters of my course.

A dark feeling in my stomach tells me that, maybe, this isn’t what Squarespace wants us to do? That they want us, instead, to not have a store page anymore, and to sell things on individual pages? If anyone knows if this is the case, please let me know — I’ll need to find a workaround solution. (I have an established site, and less flexibility than some might.)

I’ve turned this all into a quick video — 

Right after I recorded it, I had an insight — could I modify a “digital product block” to look like the other ones? I threw that into another video —

ANY help you can give would be appreciated! If no easy solution presents itself, I’m willing to pay someone to do the CSS to make this work.
