Troubleshooting Momentum

This guide explains questions and issues that may come up when using the Momentum template.

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

Background image isn't fixed on mobile

Many mobile browsers, including iOS, don't support fixed background images. To achieve a similar effect, experiment with the Size: cover and Size: contain background image style options. Note that background image style settings apply to your site on both mobile and computers.

Can I mix full-bleed and centered gallery pages?

To help you maintain a consistent style across your galleries, the Gallery style tweak in the Gallery styles section of site styles applies to all gallery pages on your site. If you switch between options, all gallery pages will have the same design.

As an alternative, use a layout page with a Gallery block.

Gallery navigation arrows disappear after the first slide on mobile devices

This is an intentional part of Momentum's mobile design. Momentum's gallery is designed for swipe navigation. The first arrow in a gallery slideshow is there to encourage visitors to swipe to the next image. After that, they can swipe to continue through the gallery.

Highlighted text is purple

Highlighted content in the Momentum template is purple (in other templates it's blue).

You can customize this highlight color by adding custom code. To learn more, visit this post in the Squarespace Forum.

Keep in mind, custom code modifications fall outside the scope of our support. This means we’re unable to help you set up or troubleshoot code-based solutions.
