Squarespace Blogging

Squarespace has an inbuilt website builder where you edit the pages within the web page view which makes it quick and easy once you learn how to use the graphical interface. All Squarespace templates support blogging but many types of templates are specifically for blogging and may have special features. See blog features by template for details. Publishing your website will require purchasing a plan from Squarespace which includes a domain name or linking an existing domain name you have purchased elsewhere.

 

When selecting a template in Squarespace, search for "Blog".

Below is an example blogging template. You can edit the existing template blog items or add new posts which will create your own new page.
Navigation is very easy, and you can see the result of any changes in the live view that is displayed.

Editing the post is performed in the pop-up edit box under the "Content" section. This is the actual blog post web page that will appear when a user selects the blog post item which is the thumbnail that is displayed on the main page.

The "Options" section when editing a blog post is where you place a thumbnail size image and short excerpt. This will appear on the main page and points to the actual full blog page for that blog post.
