Adirondack Site Styles tweaks

This guide is a reference for all Site Styles tweaks in the Adirondack template. To learn how to use Site Styles, visit Making style changes. 

Note: The Squarespace platform is constantly evolving to give you the best possible tools for building your website. We update these guides frequently, but if the platform has recently changed you may see slightly different options than the ones listed below. The best way to learn the functionality of any tweak is to experiment with it and see what changes on your site.

Site Wide

These elements display on either side of the main content area.

  • Site Drop Shadow - Add a shadow effect behind the content area.
  • Site Background Image - Add a background image. We recommend an image width between 1500 pixels and 2500 pixels. Background images should never be larger than 2500 pixels, as this can cause issues on mobile.
