 Squarespace template customization for When it Rains Paper Co.

About the project

Lauren started her creative space in September 2013 in hopes of inspiring others by sharing her ongoing & always evolving passion for living your best life.

Even when her site was on point in terms of design, she was missing a feature she realized she needed and couldn't have with her current template: a sidebar.


Kind wrds from this client



Lauren is currently using the Native template, which even when is a great option for having a fantastic looking blog, it fails in the sidebar department.

Since her blog was growing so fast, she really needed a sidebar to add widgets and calls to action, and she preferred not having to go through the process of changing to a new template if adding a sidebar was possible.

With the help of CSS and some AJAX, I was able to create a sidebar for her blog pages that blends seamlessly with her content. And even when the final result doesn't allow the same drag-and-drop features as a regular Squarespace sidebar, she can modify and change the content of it on her own!
