You can use custom third-party modifications when a feature, functionality, or embedded content isn’t available in Squarespace 5. All third-party customizations fall outside of the scope of Squarespace support.
Since these are code-based solutions, we can’t guarantee their functionality or full compatibility with Squarespace 5. This includes their appearance on mobile devices.
Adding a custom modification usually involves code provided by a third-party service. Specific steps vary by service. As a general rule:
- On the page - For widgets that appear on a specific page, post, or sidebar, add the code as a code snippet.
- Entire site - For modifications that affect your whole site, add the code to Code Injection.
- </body> or footer - If modifications ask you to add code before the </body> tag or "in the footer code," add it to your site footer.
When in doubt, reach out to the company providing the code.
Example 1 - TokBox
TokBox is a way to add video chat options to your site.
- Follow the steps in TokBox's documentation to copy the embed code.
- Paste your code into a code snippet.
- If prompted, enable access to your camera and microphone by clicking allow.
- Once a video chat has been initiated, you can moderate your session by checking I'm a moderator and typing in the secret code you received from Tokbox.

Example 2 - LinkWithin
LinkWithin displays thumbnails below your blog posts that link to similar blog posts.
- Go to linkwithin.com/learn.
- Fill in your email and site details. You can use your site's built-in URL or a custom domain. If you use a custom domain, it must be correctly linked.
- Click Get Widget.
- Copy the embed code.
- Paste the code in your site footer.
