Left Line Navigation

Our Left Line Navigation plugin adds an underline that slides in from left to right of your Squarespace site's main navigation. Below you will find a super-simple tutorial that will guide you through the installation and setup of this plugin.

 

 

Step 1: Insert the CSS

Insert the following code into your Squarespace site's Custom CSS editor or the Individual Page Header CSS injection (more info below) - the values in bold can be changed to suit your branding and site design. 

Where colour values are added, you can use either of the following:

  • Valid colour name e.g. 'red' or 'yellow'

  • Hex value e.g. #FECB2F

  • RGB(a) value e.g. rgb (255,255,255) or rgba (255,255,255,0.8) - optional opacity value '0.8'

  • HSL(s) value (optional opacity values '0.8') e.g. hsl (0, 0%, 20%) or hsla (0, 0%, 20%, 0.8) - optional opacity value '0.8'
