Why can't I add a gallery/image grid as a block?

Recommended Posts


This is my first website with Squarespace and I'm wondering why can't I add a gallery of images (grid, slideshow, carousel) as a block within a section? I can add a whole 'image' section and select grid, slideshow, etc...but that's problematic because i can't control the padding of the section or add other blocks like a simple text? Am I doing something wrong?

This seems like a very simple functionality?

Many thanks,

It is currently still available in version 7.0 and has been removed in version 7.1 (but it is still available in Circle Member account). You can add me as a contributor, I can add it to you then you can save & use it for future cases.

There is also a plugin  (affiliate link) or this link (non-affiliate link) that can bring back Gallery Block in 7.1
