Skye Site Styles tweaks

Skye, Foundry, Indigo, Ready, and Tudor share the same underlying structure and functionality. This guide applies to all these templates.

This guide is a reference for all Site Styles tweaks in the Skye, Foundry, Indigo, Ready, and Tudor templates. 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.

Before you begin

Many fonts on these templates have the option to scale, so you can set the maximum and minimum font size. This helps you control how your site looks in different browsers.

With scaling, set the maximum font size with the main font tweak (such as Title Font) and then set the minimum size (Site Title Font Min).

To learn more, visit Scaling fonts.
