Hello folks, 


I'm new to squarespace and I'm trying to implement some code from codepen on my site. I want to implement this custom carousel to replace the current carosuel that I have on my homepage. Can anyone help?

Here is the code I want to implement: Codepen Code

Here is my website link: Squarespace Site

Hi @6adawy, welcome to Squarespace! Squarespace has many built-in features and very easy to use, but if you want to add some advance customisations, you can do so via a few methods. 


This is where you can add CSS code. This allows you to alter the styling of any elements of your website. E.g. add a border to an image block. 

Code Injection:

You can add site wide or per page code injection. As well as CSS code, you can add code such as JavaScript to make changes that CSS code can't do. E.g. 

Code Block:

This is a block where you can add on a page via the Add Block button. This allows you to add an element to your page that can't be done via the built-in features. E.g. add a Table.  

Embed code:

This is a block that allows you to embed things such as a third party plugin. E.g. mailerlite. 


With your codepen, a rough guide, you would want to use the html code in a code block, the JavaScript in Code Injection, and the CSS in either the code block or in the CSS editor. As a rule of thumb, CSS code is safe, anything else can break your site unexpectedly if there are errors or used improperly. 

As your codepen code uses CSS, html and JavaScript, I suggest getting yourself familiar with concepts of Custom code. Here is the Squarespace article on Adding custom code to your site. This carries a warning and also tells you which pricing plan you would need to use each of the custom code feature.
