Marquee Site Styles tweaks

This is a reference for all Site Styles tweaks in the discontinued Marquee template family (Adversary, Alex, Eamon, Ginger, Marquee, Mint, Shift).

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 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.

Tip: For a more modern template, we recommend switching to Brine.
