We're constantly improving the Squarespace platform to ensure it keeps up with our customers' needs. Sometimes we remove features and templates that are outdated, have more recent alternatives, or are incompatible with the latest web developments. We also remove integrations with products that other companies discontinued.
Here are some features we've discontinued over the years.

- To edit your site from an iOS device, use our current Squarespace App.
- If you already have discontinued blocks on your site, they will continue to work. If you delete a discontinued block, you won’t be able to re-add it again.
- Archive Blocks work great as a replacement for the blocks we discontinued.
We update plans periodically to better group new features. To learn about our discontinued billing plans, visit Legacy billing plans.
To focus on improving the templates that benefit customers the most, we occasionally retire some templates. A discontinued template is no longer available for installation and doesn't receive new design features (unless it's part of an active family, like Bryler, Lincoln, and Taylor). It may receive our latest features and functionality, as well as fixes for any critical issue that may arise. However, this is not guaranteed for every template we've retired.
If your template is discontinued:
- Your site will stay online, and you can continue to use and edit the template as you've always been able to.
- You can switch to a different template, and switch back to the discontinued template as long as you don't uninstall it.
These are the templates we've retired. For help with these templates, visit our Discontinued templates cheatsheet.

Can I still get help with my discontinued feature?
Yes. We'll continue to help you with your site and answer any questions you have.
If bugs or issues arise with the feature, we'll fix them. However, discontinued features are no longer developed and won't be updated with any new options.
