SQUARESPACE

Squarespace has a simple HOW TO video on their webiste that provides detailed instructions if you need more information Found Here.

 

Before you begin

 

  • If you add code to Code Injection, we may ask you to disable it while editing your site. To learn more, visit Disabling scripts in preview.
  • Code Injection changes you make while on the Developer Platform will disappear if you ever disable Developer Mode. If you might disable Developer Mode later, we recommend backing up your code in a plain text editor.
  • To add CSS to a Code Injection field, surround the code with <style></style> tags. To add JavaScript, surround the code with <script></script> tags.

 

When to use Code Injection

 

Use Code Injection to add HTML and scripts that enhance specific parts of your site. These might include Google Translate, live chat services, domain verification for custom email services, or site analytics.

 

Code Injection isn’t intended for adding content or styles. To add content to your site, visit Building a page. To add custom CSS for styles, use the Custom CSS Editor.

 

Step 1 – Open Code Injection

 

In the Home Menu, click Settings, click Advanced, and then click Code Injection.

 

 

Step 2 – Add HTML code

 

Add valid HTML or scripts into the appropriate Code Injection fields.

 

Header

 

Code added here is injected into the <head> tag on every page in your site.

 

 

Footer

 

Code added here is injected into the <footer> tag on every page in your site.

The <footer> tag comes before the closing </body> tag.

 

 

Note: The footer area is defined by your template.

Lock page
The lock screen appears when a page or site is hidden behind a site-wide or page password. Code injected here displays above the lock screen’s password field.

 

Although you can add code to this field, we recommend you use the Lock Screen panel to design your lock page instead. That panel allows you to add a background image or slideshow, adjust font styles, incorporate your logo, and more.

 

 

Order confirmation page

 

Code added here is injected into the order confirmation page that appears after a customer checks out. This works well for adding third-party tracking and affiliate programs to your store.

 

There are six tags you can use to insert information specific to the customer:

  • {orderId} – The unique ID of the confirmed order
  • {orderSubtotal} – The subtotal of the confirmed order
  • {orderSubtotalCents} – The subtotal of the confirmed in cents
  • {orderGrandTotal} – The grand total of the confirmed order
  • {orderGrandTotalCents} – The grand total of the confirmed order, in cents
  • {customerEmailAddress} – The customer’s email address, as it was entered in the “Billing Info” section

 

Step 3 – Save

 

After adding your code, click Save.

 

 

Per-page Code Injection

 

The above steps show how to add code to every page of your site. You can also inject code into a single page. To open the Code Injection point to a single page:

 

  1. Open the page while in the Pages panel.
  2. Hover over the content area.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. In the Page Settings window, click Advanced in the top-right corner.

 

Page Header Code Injection adds code to the <head> tag of that page.
