Why does my site shift left and right as I switch between pages?

This may be because not all your pages are long enough to force the scrollbar to display in your browser. This is normal, as browsers will only display the scrollbar if it's needed.

If you have programming knowledge and want to force the scrollbar to display no matter what the page length, you can add the below code while in Style Editing mode (paint brush icon in upper right corner) > Appearance Editor > Custom CSS:

html { overflow-x:auto; overflow-y:scroll; }
Note: Creating/amending the code for this is an advanced modification that requires programming knowledge to complete.
Note: Squarespace 5 is our legacy platform from 2012. Although we still support Squarespace 5, fixing bugs or issues is a lower priority for us while we focus on our current platform, Squarespace 7.
