CUSTOM CSS

Is there any way to add custom css to the online store?

If there isn't, then there needs to be.

 

For example, the inbuilt formatting options for text, headings etc are too limiting.

 

I tried to javascript write a link to a custom stylesheet via the Integrations section, but it didn't work to override the inbuilt styles.

Ideally would be great if is was possible to add internal styles (e.g. <style>style declarations here</style>) to the HEAD or BODY via Integrations.

@johnno I've not heard of any updates here unfortunately.

 

Our eCommerce team has been working on building and releasing a fair amount of new functionality into Square Online, however I'm not sure where custom CSS sits in the grand scheme of things here.

 

It's not a feature that sees a great deal of demand overall, however I do understand it's an important feature for sellers looking at being able to customise their websites to a greater degree. Sorry I don't have any news to share on this one, I will update this thread if I do hear more.

Hey @johnno - thanks for posting!

 

You're right in saying that at the moment, the site editor doesn't allow folks to insert custom CSS - however, we're always looking at ways in which we can bring new features and capability to the site editor.

What's the use of your reply then?

 

This has been requested multiple times in the past, with no action. Either you're working on it, and you have an estimated roll-out. Or ... it's not being worked on. Don't pretend you're listening to user input if you don't.

Well if that is the case then I'm off to WIX.

Apparently there USED to be the feature of editing CSS ... but when they went drag n drop (fancy), the development "team" (which seems more and more like a solo teenager in a basement based on the attention to detail/quality) decided it wasn't a feature that would be a) useful or b) necessary ... go figure eh.

I'm confused........
It seems to me the Square Online Store is a cut down version of Squarespace?

What I really want is an integrated online/offline (point of sale POS) system.

Squarespace and Square POS are linked, but only if selling in the USA (I'm in Australia).

Square Online Store is linked to Square POS for Australians, but unfortunately the online store part is a POS (piece of ****)  🙂 🙂


I can't win  😞

Yeah ... we've been really happy with Square. It's mostly when they bought out the Weebly crew that things have gone downhill. The lack of true integration across these apparently 'integrated' products is insane.

 

as noted in other posts on here — it doesn't seem like anywhere outside the US is really considered valuable by Square/Weebly ... despite their recent push to get market share here.

Has CUSTOM CSS capability been added to the site editor yet?

Seamus,

 

I too need custom CSS functionality. It's not hard to add to any editing framwork it actuality. Even if a basic text box that is for "global" CSS overrides or style. I really cannot take the platform seriously without this as there are many things limited and others that are not the greatest from a UI standpoint. Let those who code have the ability to do so. Otherwise, its a "doing business with Square" limiter.

 

Thanks

Hey @mwbt21,

 

Thanks for adding your feedback to this request, I'll pass your comments on to our eCommerce team.

 

With that said, Square Online is designed to be a simple, easy and accessible template based web builder - so from a product development standpoint I'm not sure if custom CSS is something you'll see in the future, however I will share your feedback!

How is this a legitimate response by the square team? Literally every business that's larger than a mom and pop shop needs the ability to customize their website beyond the elements your restrict us to. If you want people to be able to consider square online as a legit alternative to woocommerce (which is a nightmare) then all you need to do is provide access to CSS and/or allow us to create our own templates.

Hi Guys,

 

The native 'Facebook Messenger' support is not good (at all). It requires users to have an account and log in before they can message us. Facebook allows installation of its 'Plug In' which I have used and it works great. But it won't let me add the coding through embedded coding or through the 'Tracking' Coding menu. 

 

The updated plug-in by Facebook offers a custom color selection to match your brand and allows you to have FAQ ready for your clients. 

 

I think Square needs to look at a better integration system or upgrade the quality of its 'messenger' platform.
