If you’re new to website design, whether you’re DIY’ing your site or have a web designer, the language can be a little overwhelming if you don’t know what it all means!
So in this post you’ll find some of the most commonly used website lingo - think of it as a dictionary of all things website related!
Acuity Scheduling is an online tool for scheduling appointments. You can have a booking calendar on your website (or just link to it from your site) and there’s also the option to schedule paid appointments.
A favicon is the little image that shows up in your browser tab next to the page title. If you’re like me and usually have about 20 tabs open, a favicon really makes the tab stand out as you can quickly recognise which website is hiding behind that tab.
You’ve seen the phrase ‘link in bio’ on Instagram hundreds of times. But you can only have one link in your Instagram bio so what if you want to direct your followers to a variety of pages on your website?
Everybody loves a discount don’t they! However, unlike many companies, Squarespace aren’t in the habit of offering varying discounts from time to time. The good news is that the discounts they do offer are always available, so it’s good to know you’re not likely to miss out if you don’t ‘act now’!
There are times when you may want to upload a file to Squarespace to be hosted there. For example, if you’ve made a freebie pdf you want a place to keep it so that you can let your subscribers have a link for them to get access to it and download for their own use.
Rich pins provide more context about an idea because they show extra information directly on a pin. This information is metadata from the page on the website that the pin is pinned from.
There are four types of rich pin: app, recipe, product and article.
Whether you’re hiring someone to design your new website or you’re going to do it yourself, you need to get organised before the work on the new site starts. This post sets out the things that I’d suggest you have ready or think about before the start date - it will make life much easier when the website is being put together and should also speed up the process.
This post sets out the steps you need to take so that you can hide pinnable images in your blog posts. Obviously any image can be pinned on Pinterest but what I mean are images that are ideal for Pinterest, ie vertical.
There's no doubt that Squarespace treats images beautifully and showcases them so well on your website. However, you need to make sure you get a few things right before you upload your images, which will make life easier later on. Nothing too onerous! But it’s good to get into a routine of remembering which size your images should be so that you can have all of that ready in advance.
My new website only launched at the end of August this year. I had spent weeks and weeks over the summer tinkering away with my gorgeous Wordpress theme to get to the point where I could press “launch”. Yet within a couple of weeks I just wasn’t happy with it.
