Bedford Blog Pages

Bedford, Anya, Bryant, and Hayden share the same underlying structure and functionality. This guide applies to all these templates.

The Blog Page for Bedford, Anya, Bryant, and Hayden displays as a list of vertically-stacked posts. Clicking a post title opens the full post at its own URL.

Note: To set up your Blog Page and posts, visit Blogging with Squarespace.

Layout

On the blog landing page:

  • The date, categories, and author name can appear with the post title above the post content.
  • Tags, the source URL, comments, shares, and likes display below the post when Hide List Entry Footer is unchecked.
  • Check the Center Entry Title & Meta tweak to center the post titles and metadata.
  • Featured Posts create a banner slideshow at the top of landing page.
  • Display or hide the blog author with the Hide Entry Author tweak. This tweak won’t appear if Meta Priority: Author is selected. This also affects individual blog posts.

On individual blog posts, the format is the same, but the tags, source URL, comments, shares, and likes always display. Navigation for previous and next posts displays below the comments.

The landing page and individual blog posts support banners

Here's an example post on the blog landing page:

Excerpts

Unlike some templates, blog excerpts in Bedford, Anya, Bryant, and Hayden can only contain text. The "Read More" text and arrow follows the Page Text font and Page Link Color tweaks.

Banners

On both these banners, the post title and Priority Meta displays as a text overlay.

If none of your posts are marked as Featured, the page banner displays on the Blog Page instead of the slideshow, with the page title and description as a text overlay.

Sidebar

Each Blog Page can have its own customizable sidebar. All blog posts within that blog will also display the sidebar.

To add a sidebar, ensure the Hide Blog Sidebar tweak is unchecked. Then exit the Style Editor and add content with blocks. To learn more, visit Editing sidebars.

Mobile

On mobile devices and narrow browsers, content stacks vertically.
