Templates and design in version 7.0

Squarespace's templates help you create a cohesive look and structure for your website. Every Squarespace trial starts by selecting a template, which you can change at any time. All templates have built-in responsive designs so your site scales to fit different devices and screen sizes.

In version 7.0, each template family has its own set of style parameters and special features. You'll use your template's site styles to adjust fonts, colors, spacing, and other design features.
