Removing Last Name From Squarespace Opt In Form

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone. Hope everyone is doing well today. 

On my opt-in, I want the usual first name and email, but Squarespace includes last name. Not sure why, best practices have been first name and email or email solo for years. But I want to remove the last name field/requirement without borking my email flow. Is that possible? 

Thanks for your time,

I went with Convert Kit, which solves all the issues. The html embed block is a huge design issue. Wow. I just don't get how such a strong platform like Squarespace keeps shooting themselves in the foot. The embed of convert kit forms does not render (when editing) in such a way as to see where the elements (both the form itself and surrounding elements) will actually land. I had to stack the content below the form on top of the html embed and guess my way to spacing the various elements. Horrible UI. I seriously hope they start taking these issues far more seriously. Redirect that don't work on forms, html blocks eliminating any ability to properly space a design. And that's just today. Hate to be sour grapes, but everyone on here invests trust with Squarespace. And running a business is hard enough without all these issues that never should have happened in the first place.

Hope your design day was better than mine!! LOL
