SquareSpace is a wonderful website and content management system. But you will need to take a couple of extra steps in order to embed your Buzzsprout players in your SquareSpace website!
Note: When you’re embedding a Buzzsprout player using SquareSpace the player won’t show up while you’re logged in. To see how it will look, you’ll need to log out of your SquareSpace account and then go to the player on your site to see the final product!
Here's How You Embed In SquareSpace!
Copy your Buzzsprout Embed Code. You can get this from your Players tab or you can grab an individual episode embed code from the episode details page.
Now, log into your SquareSpace account and edit your page or post.
Click the plus sign on the top right corner of your page to add a new block. Search for the Embed
block option and select it.
