Bedford Site Styles tweaks

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

This guide is a reference for all Site Styles tweaks in the Bedford, Anya, Bryant, and Hayden templates. To learn how to use Site Styles, visit Making style changes.

Note: The Squarespace platform is constantly evolving to give you the best possible tools for building your website. We update these guides frequently, but if the platform has recently changed, you may see slightly different options than the ones listed below. The best way to learn the functionality of any tweak is to experiment with it and see what changes on your site.
