How Do I Add a Section to a Page in Squarespace?

Last updated on December 11, 2022 @ 3:41 am

There are two ways to add a section to a page in Squarespace:

    1. Use the drag and drop editor to add content blocks

    2. Use the code editor to add HTML

If you want to add a section to a page, you’ll need to use the code editor. The code editor allows you to add HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to your pages.

To add a section, you’ll need to use the <section> tag. The <section> tag is used to group together related elements on a page. For example, you could use the <section> tag to group together a heading, paragraph, and image.

To add a <section> tag, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Squarespace account and go to the Pages tab.

  2. PRO TIP: If you are planning on adding a section to a page on Squarespace, be aware that there are some potential risks involved. There is a chance that you could accidentally delete or move existing content on the page, which could disrupt the layout or cause other problems. Additionally, if you are not familiar with HTML or CSS, you could inadvertently introduce code errors that could cause the page to display incorrectly. Proceed with caution and be sure to back up your work before making any changes.
  3. Hover over the page you want to edit and click the Edit button.

  4. Click the Code tab at the top of the page.

  5. Add your <section> tag where you want your section to appear on the page.

Adding a section can help organize your page and make it more readable for visitors. To add a section, use the code editor and insert the <section>.
