Creating a text box with a "close" button


Hey there, 

Im trying to create a very simple box with text to go over a shop page that can be closed if the user doesn't want to see it. Everything seems to work fine except the "x" button doesnt seem to work on squarespace, though it works in the codepen (I converted the less to css). Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Here's the code: 

<style>#popup-holder {
     position: absolute;
     top: 100px;
     height: 200px;
     width: 100%;
 #popup-holder.hide {
     display: none;
 #popup-box {
     width: 200px;
     height: 200px;
     position: relative;
     margin: 0px auto;
     background: white;
     border-style: solid;
     border-color: #1d1e21;
     border-width: 4px;
 #popup-box p {
     font-size: 1.5em;
     color: black;
     font-family: sans-serif;
     text-align: center;
     padding-top: 3em;
     padding-bottom: 3.5;
 #popup-box button {
     border-radius: 0px;
     border: none;
     background: transparent;
     font-size: 2em;
     color: black;
     position: absolute;
     right: 0;
     top: 0;
     cursor: pointer;
     padding: 2px 15px 8px 15px;
 #popup-box button:hover, #popup-box button:focus {
     background: rgba(255,255,255,0.4);
 .page-article {
     background-color: #eee;
     width: 70%;
     margin: 30px auto;
     padding: 20px;
     font-family: sans-serif;
     min-height: 100px;
 .page-article a {
     color: #000;
     text-decoration: none;
 .page-article a:hover, .page-article a:focus {
     text-decoration: underline;



$('#exit-popup').click( function() {
  $('#pa-2 a').focus();

setTimeout( function() {
}, 3000);



<div id="popup-holder" class="hide">
  <div id="popup-box">
    <button aria-label="Hide popup" id="exit-popup">x</button>

Have you loaded the jQuery library in your code? If not try adding the below to the global code injector header of your website and seeing if it works.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
