Overall Satisfaction with Squarespace

We used SquareSpace at my previous job as our web solution for a small tech startup. Today, I use it for my band's website. It's a great solution for smaller organizations with limited time to futz with customization options to get a beautiful, mobile-friendly site up and running, fast.
  • Easy to adjust CSS with a drag & drop interface.
  • Healthy number of plugins that are ready to go as soon as you dive in - little to no configuration needed.
  • Easy, drag & drop page layouts.
  • Excellent security and uptime.
  • There's a bit of a learning curve for how to get around the software and figure out where to find certain things.
  • Sometimes the left nav disappears and I have no idea why.
  • I've managed to break the top-level nav and couldn't figure out why or how to fix it.
  • Less time spent setting up a website before we can launch.
  • We have one of the most professional-looking band websites around without having to pay someone else to do it for us.
  • We can set up dynamic content easily so the site looks fresh.
SquareSpace is infinitely easier to use than any CMS I've used before. It's more reliable and saves a lot of time. I wouldn't recommend SquareSpace for large e-commerce sites or big government sites, but for small business, it's ideal.
SquareSpace is ideal for small businesses. Probably not good for a site with more than a couple dozen pages to manage.
