Image from store Squarespace Collection/Block Identifier
Description from store This extension makes it easy to find the Collection (page) and Block IDs on Squarespace sites, so you don't have to dig through the source code to find them. Click on the ID overlay buttons to automatically copy the ID to your clipboard. This is useful when writing custom CSS for specific pages on Squarespace without wanting to code in Developer Mode. Enjoy!

  • (2021-07-28) Patricia Dowdy: Doesn't work for me at all.
  • (2021-02-24) Melissa Gaviria: Very useful! The only thing not working correctly so far is the copy to clipboard functionality, as I have to click several times for it to work, and when it does, it opens the edit mode, so I have to go back after coping the ID. I'm on a M1 MacBook Air, maybe that's why.
  • (2021-02-04) nick du preez: Was great until it stopped working
  • (2021-02-02) Spencer Whiteman: It seems as if clicking the block id copies the id and you can't seem to "uncopy" it. I've tried clicking other block id's and the first one I ever have clicked stays copied to my clipboard. Now I am manually typing in the id for the other blocks if I want to target them, not sure what that bug is all about.
  • (2021-01-20) Esther Arias: I loved this extension, but suddenly it stop working :((((((((((((
  • (2020-11-29) Kitley D: OMG. This is a lifesaver and must-have if you use Squarespace. As a graphic designer, trying to customize my portfolio website in Squarespace was driving me nuts! But this is just so so so helpful to find the block IDs so I can make my changes in the Custom CSS. Thank you so much!

  • (2016-02-23) This makes it so much easier to make css changes to my Squarespace site... even for a newbie like me. I'm not a developer, I'm just someone who knows how to Google the code I'm looking for. This makes it even easier to add code to my Squarespace site without needed to hire a developer.

  • (2021-04-24, v:0.0.5) Rebecca Milnes: Blocks not appearing
    I'm using Squarespace 7.1 and the blocks aren't appearing when I try to launch the extension. I've seen other comments from other users about it not being compatible with SS 7.1 is that correct? Thank you.
  • (2021-03-12, v:0.0.5) Amy Kaye: No IDS shown
    I'm not getting any feedback after enabling this extension. Do you have any additional tutorials for troubleshooting? Can't seem to get this to work...thanks! A
  • (2021-01-20, v:0.0.5) bobby lapointe: Change to squarespace causing copy function not to work
    It seems there has been a change to squarespace 7.0 that causes the plugin to not be copied on click in design or custom CSS mode. It looks like there is a layer above it or or something. I can see the number and when I inspect the element it looks like the number your plugin provides is accurate. However, the only way to copy is to back out of design / custom css mode and go back to pages and then click to copy. I think this could be solved if I was able to select the block ID with my cursor in and copy rather than click to copy. Apologies if I am not making sense but your plugin has been a lifesaver for me and without it my workflow is horrible, I am hoping it is an easy fix for you that you would be willing to update. Thank you!

  • (2020-04-11, v:0.0.5) David Trim: Block Identifier Button doesn't seem to work
    I am a non-developer who has successfully implemented a number of code additions on my 7.0 SquareSpace site and am excited to use your tool. I have successfully loaded your button on my toolbar, but cannot make anything happen when I click it within my SS development site. I select the content block, usually in "Pages," view it in Page edit and image edit or text edit modes. Still nothing. What am I doing wrong?
