Wells Blog Pages

Wells's Blog Page displays as a list of vertically-stacked posts. Clicking a post title opens the full post at its own URL.

Note: To set up your Blog Page and posts, visit Blogging with Squarespace

Layout

On the blog landing page:

  • The date and categories display below the post title. 
  • The source URL, tags, and the comment, Share, and like buttons display below the post content.
  • The blog author doesn't display.
  • To adjust the space between posts, use the Blog Post Spacing tweak.
  • Adjust the color of the date and other metadata with the Blog Meta Data Color tweak.
  • Adjust the blog post fonts with the tweaks in the Site Wide Options section of the Style Editor.
  • Promoted Blocks display above the post title.

On individual blog posts, the layout is the same, but navigation for previous and next posts displays below the comments.

Here's an example post on the blog landing page:

Promoted Blocks

For both full posts and excerpts, Promoted Image, Gallery, and Quote Blocks display above the post title. To promote a block, make it the first block in a blog post, above all other content.

Excerpts

Excerpts display with a Read More link. You can include images with excerpts: 

  • Promoted Blocks display above the post title.
  • Thumbnails display above the excerpt text.

If a post with an excerpt has both a thumbnail and a Promoted Block, the Promoted Block displays.

Sidebar

The sidebar displays on the blog landing page and individual posts. Customize the sidebar content using blocks.

  • If you have multiple blogs on your site, each Blog Page shows the same sidebar.
  • Use the Blog Sidebar tweak to display the sidebar on the Left or Right. 
  • Choose Blog Sidebar: Hidden to hide the sidebar.
  • Use the Blog Sidebar Width and Blog Sidebar Padding tweaks to adjust its size.
Note: If you’re going to Hide the Blog sidebar, delete the demo content first. Even when hidden, text from the sidebar may get pulled into posts when sharing on social media.

Mobile

On mobile devices and narrow browsers, content stacks vertically.
