Stop screaming at Squarespace: 6 things to make your life easier

Everyone knows that Squarespace is supposed to be one of the easiest platforms to work with.
But let’s be real- easiest doesn’t equal easy.

I’ve been building Squarespace websites for years- and these are tips and tricks that my clients wish they had known sooner!

  1. How to do line vs paragraph breaks


If you press SHIFT + ENTER, you get:

This is a
Single line break.

If you press only ENTER, you get:

This is a

Paragraph break.


2. How Spacers work


3. How Headings Work

In Squarespace, you get 4 options for the normal text on a page:

  • Heading 1

  • Heading 2

  • Heading 3

  • Normal


3. How the navigation works:

Pro tip: “Not Linked” just means that the page isn’t in the main navigation or footer navigation. You can still link to this page, and it is still accessible if people know the URL for that page!


4. How to center text next to an Image

You may also all this balancing text with an image in Squarespace, or evening out the text and images.


5. Wrap an image


6. Compress Images without Photoshop
