Our Impressions:

Squarespace is impressive when you first start using it, it’s elegant to use and simple to change content around. With their custom templates, its easy to put in your own content, move it around and change up the page. They have a lot of “blocks” which let you add functionality to your website like a photo gallery, forum, forms, maps, etc. The controls for editing and designing templates were good enough that anyone could make themselves a unique site, however it may requires knowledge of CSS for complex things.

This is a solid offering as a CMS that few would be dissapointed with. It may be limiting for advanced users in some ways, but we haven’t experimented with the system enough to really give it a run for its money. The only disadvantage we can point out is the recurring monthly cost.
