Squarespace 7 – after using it.
The last time I posted about this, was a few hours after Squarespace announced version 7. I haven’t had the opportunity to test it, at all, then. But I have been playing with it for a few hours – over a few days now. And I love it.
Squarespace 6 was one huge, and impressive update. But the admin interface was always a little bit too weird and messy for my taste.
They are fixing it in version 7. It’s in beta right now.
This is what I love about version 7 this far:
The new menu system in the admin interface is simpler, cleaner, makes more sense and is easier to navigate.
You don’t have to leave the admin interface to work with the site layout.
This is what I don’t like:
- I can’t edit or write blog post in full screen. This was possible before LayoutEngine 2.
Squarespace 7 is not the same kind of update that 6 was. But this is the kind of update that every Squarespace user will love. Not a huge amount of new stuff. But a lot of improvements, that some of us have been asking for, for a very long time.
