Montauk, Julia, Kent, and Om share the same underlying structure and functionality. This guide applies to all these templates.
The 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.
On the blog landing page:
- The date and author name display above each post. Use the Hide Article Author tweak to hide or show the author name.
- The source URL, categories, tags, and comment, Share, and Like buttons display below the post.
- To adjust the space between posts, use the Blog Post Spacing tweak.
- Use the Blog Post Title tweak to adjust the title font.
- in the Colors section you can adjust Heading 1 Color, Text Color, and Blog Meta Color to change the colors of the post title, text, and metadata such as the date.
- The Blog Page supports a sidebar, banner, and page footer.
- Promoted Blocks display wider than the rest of the blog post content.
- Thumbnail images don't display.
On individual blog posts, the layout is the same, but navigation for newer and older posts displays above the comments.
Here's an example post on the blog landing page:
Excerpts display with a Read More link.
Promoted Image, Gallery, or Video Blocks display in the excerpt in these templates. To promote a block, make it the first block in a blog post, above all other content.
The sidebar displays on the blog landing page and individual posts.
- To enable a sidebar, use the Blog Layout tweak to select either Right Sidebar or Left Sidebar.
- Choose Blog Layout: Center to hide the sidebar.
- Set the size of the sidebar with the Blog Sidebar Width tweak.
- The sidebar scrolls up with the page.
- If you have multiple blogs on your site, the same sidebar displays on all of them.
If your demo content doesn't include a blog sidebar, your sidebar will be blank when you first enable it in the Style Editor. After leaving the Style Editor, hover over the top right corner of your Blog Page and click the Sidebar Content Edit annotation. Then customize the sidebar content using blocks.
