Adding a tagline

On version 7.0, most Squarespace templates give you the option to add and style a tagline. A tagline is a short piece of text that tells the world what your site is about. Taglines in Squarespace usually display near the site title or logo, to help reinforce your brand.

This guide reviews how to add a tagline and how it displays on each template.

Taglines are only available on version 7.0. For a similar look on version 7.1, use a logo image that includes your tagline text

Add a tagline

Add or edit your tagline from the Home Menu on a computer or from Settings on the Squarespace App.

To edit your tagline from the Home Menu:

  1. Click Design, then click Logo & Title. You can also hover over your site title on any page, and click Edit.
  2. In the Tagline field, enter your tagline.
  3. Click Save to publish your changes.

Tagline display by template

Each template is unique, and not all templates display the tagline. Here's how the taglines display in these template families.

  • To style the tagline, look for Tagline, Tag Line, or Subtitle tweaks.
  • If your template doesn't have a specific size tweak, use the font tweak to adjust the size.
