What is new in Squarespace 7 vs. Squarespace 6 - Squarespace Help?
At the end of 2014 all locations on Squarespace 6 were updated to Squarespace 7 by default. When you have not signed in to Squarespace for a while, this manual will take you through the most important changes and provides a quick introduction to Squarespace 7. Please note: If you are new to Squarespace, please see our Getting Started guide.
To take a virtual trip through the Squarespace user experience, check out this video: In Squarespace 6 we used two different ways to modify your website: the front-end and the back-end. The Squarespace 7 has merged them so that you can modify your website and view changes in the previews during modification. Annotations can be edited on the page in each of your website's editable partitions.
Simply move your mouse over an area when the page administration fields are open and click Modify. You use annotations to manipulate titles, navigate, page contents, blogs, sidebars, footing lines, pads, and more. When you click on an annotation, the page window collapses and the display behind the target area is grayed out for specific work.
Also Squarespace 7 presents a new design panell. Anything that determines the way your website is presented visually, such as the Style Editors, your templates, and the HTML and HTML editors, can now be found in the Design Dashboard. The Squarespace 7 enhances the way blogs are viewed and organised. Instead of removing the band from single contributions, we grouped the contributions by state.
There are two ways to modify your blogs posts: from the page cover listing or from the annotations on the page. Sites also have the new page panels / lived previews layouts. Items are displayed in a piled listing in the side pane along with information such as pricing, inventory and number of variations. Gallery, product, album, and events pages now provide several ways to append and modify contents or customize page settings.
Use both On-Page Annotation and the Page window to organize your collections. This new section groups similar elements, cleans the sidewall and makes the setting more intuitively.
