Minimum column width and layout possibilities

Hello all!

I’m working on a site that has some layout challenges and I’m trying out Squarespace and Breezi to see which could handle the content most easily. I’ve included images of the layout plan (pardon the links, having trouble finding out how to embed them)

As shown, the menu is in a funky format, I’m doing this because it’s a Chinese site selling expensive china/porcelain stuff and I wanted to try accentuating the Asian culture-ness through the site’s design (Chinese/Japanese is traditionally written vertically)

Question: I’m new to Breezi/Squarespace and I’d like some feedback on whether this is achievable. I noticed that Breezi seems to have a minimum limit for column widths at 100px, and there’s no apparent way for a block element to cross the design system’s framework of header/body separation. Is there any way to achieve this? Hacks? Tricks? Anything?

Hello Sam,

Our layout has a maximum width of 960px, these width is all of the available area where you can install apps. You can split the containers into columns that could be as small as 100px wide, that is the smallest width that a column could have. Other than this, you can create the same layout with no complications at all.

Here’s an article that explains how our Layout Builder works:

I hope you find this article useful.

That is correct, if an element is installed on the header it will not go over to the body or viceversa and there is not a way to change that at this very moment.

Please let us know if you have any comments or questions, remember that we’re here to help.

All the best,

Wow! Thanks for the quick reply!

One last question with the header/body structure. Would it “break” anything if I simply had everything in the header block and remove the body block entirely? Or are they simply there as a semantics guide and we can place anything in any block?




You can install all of the apps on a single block if you want. We created the blocks in order to have more control and order with the layout structure, however you can decide to install the apps anywhere on your site.

Let us know if you have any comments or questions.

Kind regards,
