Grid Gallery 1


Add an overlay hover style with animated 'bounce' titles using this Grid Gallery plugin on your Squarespace site. Below you will find a super-simple tutorial that will guide you through the installation and setup of this plugin.

Step 1: Create a Grid Gallery

Insert a Gallery Block and set it to the 'Grid' style following our recommended settings:

Aspect Ratio - 1:1 Square 
Crop Images - ✔
Show Title - ✔
Thumbnails Per Row - 2
Grid Padding - 20
Open Links in New Window - ✔

Step 2: Insert the CSS

Insert the following code into your Squarespace site's Custom CSS editor or the Individual Page Header CSS injection (more info below) - the values in bold can be changed to suit your branding and site design. 

Where colour values are added, you can use either of the following:

  • Valid colour name e.g. 'red' or 'yellow'

  • Hex value e.g. #FECB2F

  • RGB(a) value e.g. rgb (255,255,255) or rgba (255,255,255,0.8) - optional opacity value '0.8'

  • HSL(s) value (optional opacity values '0.8') e.g. hsl (0, 0%, 20%) or hsla (0, 0%, 20%, 0.8) - optional opacity value '0.8'
