3 Ways to Style Your Blog using the Five Template on Squarespace
In a recent Squarespace Biz Blogging Workshop, one of the members asked how to style a blog page in the Five Template so that it has grid layout similar to Pink Peonies.
Now, couple of things - I'm not as familiar with the Five Template as I am with templates in the Brine family.
What I know is that the Five template allows you to style each page with one or two sidebars (Yay for those of you who love sidebars!)
Confession: I don't! (But that's totally ok if you do!)
The other thing is that the blog landing page layout style is somewhat set in stone. There's not a lot you can do to change that - you need a workaround.
(Pssst - Pin that there image! And keep reading...)
Now Pink Peonies has some fancy dynamic stuff going on with their blog grid layout. We'd need some code to achieve the pop-up titles on the images, for example.
But, let's not let that stop us from designing a non-code-y workaround. We DIYers are creative sorts, aren't we - whether we're designing our Squarespace website from scratch or figuring out how to create a fake blog sidebar (for those of us NOT using the Five Template.)
