Index Style Guide

Index pages are a key design feature that collects images and content from different pages and arranges them visually, creating a one destination where visitors can browse content via multiple sub-pages.

The Index Style strongly defines a Templates' Style. Each Template (family) has its own Index page. Only a few older Templates do not have Index pages. Yet, they all still carry the same distinctive Index style.

Index pages fall into one of three categories.

INDEX PAGE STYLES

  1. Grid

  2. Staked

  3. Slideshow

 

THE GRID INDEX

grid

Each page in the Index creates a thumbnailimage on the page. Clicking a thumbnail image opens the connected page. This design forms a visual navigation grid linking to content throughout your site.

ALL THE GRID STYLE TEMPLATES
You can change the number or shape of the thumbnails, their padding, and how the page titles display, depending on your template. Use the links below to view the look of your template's Index.

 

 

THE STAcKED INDEX

stacked

Each page in the Index creates a section of a single scrolling page, in one long page like an accordion-folded pamphlet that you can open up and see all the pages at once. The sections stack vertically, allowing visitors to scroll through a lot of information, all with a simple view.

ALL THE STAKED TEMPLATES
You can change the fonts, navigation elements, and how page content displays. Options vary by template. Use the links below to view the look of your template's Index.

  • Bedford family - Anya, Bryant, Bedford, Hayden

  • Brine family - Aria, Basil, Blend, Brine, Burke, Cacao, Clay, Ethan, Fairfield, Feed, Foster, Greenwich, Hatch, Heights, Hunter, Hyde, Impact, Jaunt, Juke, Keene, Kin, Maple, Margot, Marta, Mentor, Mercer, Miller, Mojave, Moksha, Motto, Nueva, Pedro, Polaris, Pursuit, Rally, Rover, Royce, Sofia, Sonny, Sonora, Stella, Thorne, Vow, Wav, West

  • Pacific family - Charlotte, Fulton, Horizon, Naomi, Pacific

 

 

THE SLIDESHOW INDEX

Each page in an Index displays as a full-bleed background image with a content overlay. Clicking a page title opens the connected page. This is a great way to use images to introduce different concepts or portfolios.

SPECIAL FEATURES GUIDE

 

TEMPLATE Similarities

Here is a list of common features used in all templates:

  • Regular Pages - Regular Pages allow you to build a page from scratch on any template.

  • Collections - Although their appearance and features vary, all templates support collection pages. This means any template can have a blog, shop, calendar of events, and splash page, and can host images and music.

  • Core Commerce features - Commerce features vary by billing plan, but all templates can display and sell products.

  • Fonts and colors - All templates support the Squarespace font library and color options.

  • Content management features - With any template, you’ll have access to the Squarespace platform’s built-in tools, such as blocks, analytics options, and site management settings.

TEMPLATE Differences

Here is a list of common features that may vary significantly between templates:

  • Style tweaks - Each template’s specific style tweaks allow for customization while retaining the aesthetic vision of a template.

  • Collection page options - Many templates have special features and styles built into their collection pages. For example, the Wells template has a unique feature that allows visitors to switch the Gallery Page between a slideshow and thumbnail images.

  • Index Pages - Only certain templates support Index Pages, and Index Page styles range from stacked banner images to thumbnail navigation grids.

  • Headers, footers, and sidebars - The template determines a site’s basic layout. For example, only select templates have per-page footers or headers or sidebars.

  • Banners and background images - You can add banner images or background images to many templates. Some templates support additional features like special banners and parallax scrolling.

  • Demo content - Demo content demonstrates the template’s strengths and features, and serves as an inspiration for you as you build your site.

Squarespace templates define a site’s style and functionality. Although every template is customizable, there are special style rules and features built into each template. Many of these are unique to the template's family.

This guide offers a comparison of key features by template family. It's a quick reference for people who are familiar with our terminology. It doesn't cover features that are the same on every template, such as blocks and Regular Pages. Some of these templates are discontinued.

Page types

Every template supports AlbumBlogEventsGallery, and Products collection pages. Some templatefamilies also include special pages, like an Index Page. When templates share the same page type, such as the Standard Album Page, the page's style options and features are the same in each template.

  • A template's other options, like banner images, affect how the page looks. Pages may also look different when added to or opened from an Index.

  • For information about a unique page type, see the template's guide.
