What's that? You want more #squarespacehacks? Ya? Well you are in luck my frand. I've got a really cool one today that I'm pumped to share: Custom Block Quotes! This is so perfect for featured testimonials or important tidbits you want to call attention to on a sales page. So let's fancy up those boring old Squarespace quotes, shall we?



  • In the main Squarespace menu, click DESIGN. Then CUSTOM CSS.
  • Copy and paste the following code:

.newblockquote { background: #fff; border-top: 5px solid #F2CBCB; border-bottom: 5px solid #F2CBCB; margin: 1.5em 0px; padding: 0.5em 10px; quotes: "\201C""\201D""\2018""\2019"; color: #F2CBCB; font-size: 25px; padding-top: 35px; padding-left: 50px; padding-right: 50px; padding-bottom: 35px; }

.newblockquote:before { color: #F2CBCB; content: open-quote; font-size: 4em; line-height: 0.1em; margin-right: 0.1em; vertical-align: -0.4em; font-family: Volkhov, Georgia, Serif; }

.newblockquote:after { display: none !important; color: #F2CBCB; content: close-quote; font-size: 4em; line-height: 0.1em; margin-left: 0.1em; vertical-align: -0.6em; font-family:Volkhov, Georgia, Serif; }

.newblockquote p { display: inline; }

The pink highlighted text is where you can change your colors. Do not edit the other text. (You can also add this code to an individual page if you only want to see the effects on one page of your Squarespace site).

  • On the Squarespace page you'd like to add a quote block to, insert a CODE content block.
  • Paste the following code, replace the text with your own and then click save:

<p class="newblockquote">

This is an awesome quote from a previous client who just adores you and your work. They have nothing but glowing reviews and kind words to share with you, and so, being the savvy biz owner that you are, you share it on your website for future clients to see! How nice.



The pink highlighted text is where you can change your text and add your quote. Do not edit the grey text.

And that's it!! Easy peasy.
