Web: Editing your Bio Site with the web editor

Change the style and content of your Bio Site.

After publishing your Bio Site, you can edit it either using the Unfold app, or the web editor. Review this guide to learn more about editing aspects of your Bio Site such as the background, font, and more using the web editor.

Make style changes

You can change your Bio Site’s template, background, or font in the Style panel. To access the Style panel, in the left navigation menu, click

After styling your Bio Site, in the top-right corner, click Update to publish your changes.

Choose a background

You can edit your background using the following options:

  • Colors - Choose a solid or gradient color.
    • Picker - click the first multi-color circle. Use the slider to select a color, then choose a shade in the square above. If you know the Hex value for the color you want, you can also click in the value field to edit it.
  • Textures - Choose a pre-formatted texture.
  • Animations - Choose an animated gradient.

Change the font

When you change the font, it affects the text in your Bio Description, links, and text boxes. 

Add your profile information

To add images and personal information to your Bio Site:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click to open the Profile panel.
  2. To upload a profile picture and cover photo (if applicable) click then select an image from your device.

Note: We recommend resizing images to a minimum of 1200 px × 674px, as the selected image is cropped to fit an aspect ratio of 16:9.

  1. Under About, enter or edit your name and bio description.
  2. Optional: under Design, choose a header design. Header designs incorporate the profile and cover photos you selected.
  3. In the top-right corner, click Update to publish your changes.

Add your social accounts

By default, your Bio Site contains a Social section beneath your profile information. Use this section to display a row of icons linking to your social accounts. You can move or delete this section at any time.

If you use Autofill to populate content in your Bio Site, the Social section automatically populates with the links from the Social links panel of your Squarespace site.

To add a row of social icons to your Bio Site using the web editor:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click to open the Sections panel.
  2. If you haven’t added social icons yet, under Recommended, click Social. If you already have social icons, under My Sections, Click Social
  3. Click the icon for the social account you want to add.
  4. Enter the necessary information beside the icon.
  5. Repeat these steps for each social account you want to add, up to eight.
  6. To rearrange your social accounts, click and hold next to the social account you want to move to slide it up or down the list.
  7. To delete a social account, click that appears close to the corresponding social icon.
  8. In the top-right corner, click Update to publish your changes.

If the icon for the social account you want to add doesn't appear, or to add multiple accounts for a single social platform, add links to those accounts manually.

Add your links

Links you add in the Links section display as a vertical list in the body of your Bio Site. This is a great place to add links to your websites or direct links to social media profiles that don’t have a built-in icon in the Social section. This section appears beneath the Social section by default, but you can move or delete it at any time.

To add links to your Bio Site using the web editor:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click to open the Sections panel.
  2. Click Links.
  3. In the Link name field, enter the name you want to appear for the link.
  4. In the URL field, enter the URL for the website you want to link to. The URL won’t be visible on your Bio Site.
  5. Click to either upload a thumbnail image from your device, or choose a branded icon image from the Icon library
  6. Repeat these steps for every link you want to add.
  7. To rearrange your links, click and hold next to the link you want to move to slide it up or down the list.
  8. To delete a link, hover over it and click to the left of the link. 
  9. In the top-right corner, click Update to publish your changes.
