Want to Duplicate or Copy the Form Block in Squarespace? Try this.

 
Duplicate a Squarespace Form Block
 

Recently, I changed the design of the Work with Me pages of my website: For Web Designers and For Entrepreneurs & Freelancers.

One of the changes included putting the client intake forms on their own web pages rather than having the form pop up in light box mode. (Is that a good idea, we'll see?)

If you're not sure what I'm blathering on about, bear with me and keep scrolling. I show the difference at the bottom of this post.

At this time, you can't copy or duplicate a form within a page or from one page to another. Kind of irritating, truth be told. 

Have you ever built a Squarespace form?

They're handy. Useful. Totally customizable. Can be used for questionnaires, contact forms, client intakes, surveys, testimonials. You name it. 

But building a Squarespace form can be pain in the butt. Especially if you can't reuse it on another page. 

So what's the solution? Code is apparently one way. But let's not go there.

The other solution is:

  • duplicate the page the form you want to copy is on,
  • delete all the content blocks on that page except the form
  • design the new page around the form.

Does that even make sense?

So, in case you're wondering - what's the difference between the form on the page and the pop up light box mode?

Here's what a form on a Squarespace page (or blog post) looks like using the default settings.

Here's what a Form in Light Box Mode looks like using the default settings.

 
 

(To set this up, in the Form Block, click Advanced --> Scroll Down --> Enable Light Box Mode --> Type the text into the Open Button Label field.)
