Squarespace

Feature requests for Squarespace, my current website builder.

On this page:
- Suggest Blog Thumbnails
- Number of  Available Pages
- Scrolling: Summary Carousel Block
- Lightbox Filmstrip

Blog Editor

Populate optional thumbnails from image blocks in the "Content" pane.


Show Available Pages
