An About page is a staple of nearly every professional site. This guide includes tips for adding an About page to your Squarespace site.
Note: If you're working in a new site, your template may already have a demo About page that you can copy, allowing you to skip to Step 2. If your template comes with this page, open it, click Edit, and then click Create in the message to customize the example content. To learn more about demo content, visit Working with demo content.
Step 1 - Add a Regular Page
In the Home Menu, click Pages, then click the + icon.
In the New Page menu, select Page. This adds a Regular Page to your site.
Enter a title for the page (for example, “About”).
Then select a starter layout. We recommend the following options:
- Blank is a blank slate where you can add different combinations of blocks to form a custom layout of text, images, and content. This is a great option if you already know how you want to structure your About page.
- About layouts offer three designs with a mix of body text, headers, and images. Replace placeholders with your own content or go beyond the starter layout by adding and rearranging blocks.
Click Start Editing to begin adding content.
Step 2 - Add content
The sections below cover the common blocks seen on About pages. You can use all of these methods, or just pick the ones that work for your site.
To add any of these blocks, click an Insert Point or the + icon, then select from the Block Menu. For more help, visit Adding blocks.
Add a bio or history
Use a Text Block to add a bio, company description, or brief history to your About page.
- Use the Heading style to add headings.
- Use the Normal style to add body text.
Combine text and images
Link to social profiles
Use a Social Links Block to add icons or buttons that lead to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other social profiles. Ensure you've already connected the accounts you want to link to in the block.
Use Quote Blocks to add quotes from clients you want to stand out from other text.
Add clients or previous customers
Arrange the layout
After you've finished adding blocks, drag and drop them around the page to create a custom layout. Then click Save to publish your changes.
