How To Get Scrolling Text On Your Squarespace Or Showit Website

What better way to celebrate my 150th blog post then with some of my all time FAVORITE codes! These will work on Squarespace or Showit. Enjoy friends!

Code used on Squarespace website page:


WOHOOO! Now go to Custom CSS and enter this snippet of code:

.typeit {
  overflow: hidden; 
  font-size:25px; /* this can be any font size you want */

  border-right: 2px solid #e37263; /* change this color in the keyframe too */

  white-space: nowrap; 
  margin: 0 auto; 
    typeit 3.5s steps(40, end),
    right-border .5s step-end infinite;

@keyframes typeit {  
from { width: 0 }
to { width: 100% }

@keyframes right-border {
from, to { border-color: transparent }
50% { border-color: #e37263; /* change this in the CSS above too */ }
@media only screen and (max-width: 640px){ .typeit { font-size:13px!important; }}

Code used on Showit website page:

<div class="si-embed">
<div id="container">
<script src=""></script>

<span class="Typewriter__wrapper"></span><span class="Typewriter__cursor">|</span></div>
<style>@font-face {
  font-family: Tenez Light;
  src: url(;

<script>var container = document.getElementById('container');

var typewriter = new Typewriter(container, {
    loop: false,
}); = "normal 30px Tenez Light" = "#3e3d3b" = "center" = "1.6"

typewriter.typeString('Website Designer')
    .typeString('Brand Strategist')
    .typeString('Squarespace Educator')
    .typeString('New Entrepreneur Helper')

Want another scrolling text variation for your Squarespace website?

Watch Inside The Square (aka Becca’s) tutorial for another scrolly text variation (versus the typewriter version which mine had)!
