This tutorial will show you how to create a frosted glass effect for the blog grid in your Squarespace 7.1 site. A few important things to note before you copy and paste this into your own site:

+ There is more than one way to do this! This is just one approach of many because code is super customizable.
+ Be sure to edit the code to suit your own site style, trying different blur options, adjust those margins, padding, and more.
+ This code is specifically for Squarespace 7.1 blog post pages.
+ You can apply this to a single page using page header code injection or an on page code block. Check out this tutorial for more info on that: https://youtu.be/kX6kRjCbzu8
+ If you need some help with this tutorial, feel free to contact me at https://insidethesquare.co/code-help

β†’ Here is the basic code from the tutorial:
.blog-basic-grid .blog-basic-grid–text { position: absolute; background: inherit; margin-left:5%; margin-right:auto; width: 90%; height: 70%; margin-top: 12.5%; background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .3); backdrop-filter: blur(5px); border-radius: 10px; }
.blog-basic-grid–text *{padding: 0 .2rem 0 .2rem}

β†’ And here is the hover effect version for desktop only:
.blog-basic-grid .blog-basic-grid–text {
position: absolute; background: inherit; margin-left:5%; margin-right:auto; width: 90%; height: 70%; margin-top: 12.5%; background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .3); backdrop-filter: blur(5px); border-radius: 10px; transition:2s; }
.blog-basic-grid–text *{padding: 0 .2rem 0 .2rem}
@media only screen and (min-width:640px){
.blog-basic-grid–text:hover{
backdrop-filter: blur(0px); background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .5); }
.blog-basic-grid–container:hover {
box-shadow:5px 5px 10px #ccc; transition:1s}
.blog-article-spacer{display:none}}
