How can I see my options for different templates?

Recommended Posts

I've previously made sites on Squarespace in Version 7.0, and been happy with the results. I've just purchased new domains and realized too late that the Version 7.1 interface no longer allows me to try out different templates. 

This sucks. How do I try out different templates now, especially given that I strongly dislike the one I've got? I want to see different design ideas quickly - and I can't find a single way to do it now. I've looked through these forums and not found any solutions either, beyond "start a new trial" - is this the only way? That's awful, obviously.

Secondly, I've got all these options for "selling, marketing, contact, analytics, scheduling" - none of these are features I need. Why are they there?

Any help anyone can provide would be great. I signed up again to set up a good-looking site quickly - but I feel locked into an ugly site with no obvious way to fix it.

Unlike version 7.0, All Squarespace 7.1 sites have the same features, so the concept of "switching templates" doesn't exist. Your research is correct: you'll need to start a new trial when you want to try a different design pattern 🙂.

Feel free to ignore the features that you don't want to use. The Squarespace platform has expanded in recent years, meaning there are now many more options available for you to explore including Commerce, Email Campaigns and Acuity Scheduling.
