Bedford site styles tweaks

This is a list of all site styles tweaks for the Bedford family (Anya, Bedford, Bryant, Hayden).

We constantly evolve the Squarespace platform to give you the best possible tools for building your website. If the platform recently changed, you may see different options than the ones listed below. The best way to learn how any tweak works is to experiment with it and see what changes on your site.

Tip: For general help, see the Bedford template guide.
