The No-Template Style
I’ve gotten some feedback on my webcomic template for Squarespace, and the two biggest complaints are that the $18 per month developer account is too expensive, and the template is too hard to customize for someone with no coding skills whatsoever.
Since I released the template, Squarespace has made a couple updates to their platform that have allowed me to publish a new solution that doesn’t require a custom template. This means it’ll work with ANY Squarespace plan including the $8/month basic plan. I’ve also put together a video tutorial on how to get a site up and running in less than 10 minutes, as well some tutorials that cover some of the customizations you can do with your site. If you want 100% control over your site, it is still best to go with my original template, but this new solution is surprising versatile, and with a little CSS tweaking, you can make it a super custom experience.

It’s built off of Squarespace’s default ”Five” template, so the first step is to go here and click the “Create a Site Like This” button in the bottom right corner.
