  1. I uploaded a simple text file to my Squarespace site (Business Plan subscription, 1 year auto-renewal). I injected javascript into the footer to test code to read the contents of the file (see below). The output in the Dev console (Firefox) is not the contents of the file I expected, but rather - Records: <empty string>. I've used this technique successfully on Wordpress sites. Any idea why this isn't working on Squarespace?

    UPDATE: Looking deeper, is it possible the responseText is empty because Squarespace doesn't put 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' in the request's response header? If so, is there another approach I can use to accomplish my goal?

    <script type="text/javascript">
    rawFile = new XMLHttpRequest();
    rawFile.open("GET", 'https://lily-pike-4bpy.squarespace.com/s/motd.txt', false);
        rawFile.onreadystatechange = function ()
            if(rawFile.readyState === 4)
                if(rawFile.status === 200 || rawFile.status == 0)
                    var allText = rawFile.responseText;
