Have you ever wanted to create a responsive gallery to feature different collections of your work all within one page?
While Squarespace doesn’t have a content block to create this magic, I do have handy trick I’ve used in various ways across my website.

On this “one page,” your audience can select different categories to view. And they can easily toggle between these filtered views without losing their bearings or ever having to click the <— Back button of their browser.
