Where to find Squarespace Plugins (Free and Paid)
What are Squarespace Plugins?
When people talk about “Squarespace Plugins” they’re referring to snippets of code that you can add to your Squarespace site for effect or functionality. They typically fall under one of these categories.
CSS Snippets - These are codes you can past into your Custom CSS to add custom styles your site.
JS based plugins - These plugins add functionality that isn’t already built into the platform.
Integrations - 3rd party tools that integrate with your site.
Add-ons - These are plugins that overlay your site.
Where can I find them?
There’s no official plugin store or marketplace for 3rd party features like these. This post is the closest you’ll get. Over the years several shops have popped up selling these codes and I’ve tried to include them all here (if I’ve missed you or you’d like to be added, just email me). Each shop has plugins you wont find anywhere else and the way each developer packages the code is will be different. In other words, there’s no one standard.
If you are unsure about a certain plugin, look for reviews or reach out to the creator before purchasing.
