How to set up your Squarespace user account

These instructions are for people who have never used Squarespace before. These are step-by-step instructions for accepting a Contributor Invitation and creating a Squarespace login.

1. Open invitation email

You will get an email from Squarespace that is called "Contributor invitation for XXXYYY". Open the email and click the big Accept Invitation button.

2. Accept invitation

This will open a page in your browser with a button to accept the invitation. Click the button to accept.

3. Use the Create New Account link

On the following screen, it will expect you to already have a Squarespace account and login. Since you don't have a Squarespace account*, IGNORE THE TOP SPACES and DO NOT CLICK LOGIN. Instead click the Create Squarespace Account link.

* If you have EVER used Squarespace before, you can use the same login details to access all Squarespace sites.

4. Enter details and create account

Enter your personal details in all the boxes, and make sure you select the Terms & Conditions box, then click Create Account


5. Your account has been created and you will be logged in.

You will now be logged into your website, and your screen should look similar to that shown here: a thin admin menu on the left, and large preview window on the right that shows your website.

By default, your browser will keep you logged in. If you ever need to login again from a different browser or computer, you can do so by hitting the ESC key when you are on any webpage on your website.

You can also login by visiting (though it's easier to just visit your website and hit ESC).
