About page types

The new page menu is divided into three categories. Exact page options vary by template:

Layout Pages

Layout Pages are where you add combinations of blocks to create custom layouts of text, images, audio, forms, and more. Layout Pages vary depending on which version of Squarespace your site is on.

In version 7.1, a Layout Page is any page you create other than Blog, Events, Portfolio, or Store Pages. In the Pages panel, the Layout Page icon looks like this:


When you add a Layout Page, you can choose between a blank page, where you create the layout from scratch, or a starter layout designed for certain uses like Contact pages and About pages. Starter layouts have placeholder blocks to help you get started and are completely customizable.


Collection pages

Collection pages are home to sets of content items: gallery images, products, blog posts, events, or album tracks. There are six collection pages:

With the exception of Album Pages, collection pages have a two-level structure. Visitors can view a collection page, like a blog page, then click individual collection items, like a blog post, to view an item-specific page.

Collection pages vary between templates, using distinct features and designs to present collection items in exciting ways.

Collection pages on the Create New Page menu.

Other pages

There are three types of organizational pages you can use to structure your other pages or link to external content.

  • Index Pages (version 7.0 only) present multiple pages of content in a single location. Pages within the Index appear as a grid of thumbnails, single continuous pages, or other unique designs. Designs vary between templates, and not all templates support Index Pages.
  • Folders group multiple pages into a drop-down menu in your navigation.
  • Links create navigation links to external content or your own content, sorted by tags or categories.

Cover Pages (version 7.0 only)

Cover Pages work differently than the page types covered above. A Cover Page can act as a bold splash page or distinctive single page on any template, incorporating full-bleed images and other special features. Cover Pages have a more fixed design than other pages, helping you concentrate on a simpler message.

Info Pages (Aviator family)

Info Pages are special pages, only available in the Aviator family. They function similarly to a Cover Page.

Demo pages

Every template includes demo pages that highlight the template's strengths and possible uses. These example pages have a Demo label to the right of the page title. To learn more about using or removing these pages, visit Working with demo content.

The Demo label appears next to demo pages in the Pages panel.

Next steps

After adding pages, take these next steps to edit their settings, delete pages, or style your navigation:
