Code Blocks and Javascript on site in development

Recommended Posts


I'm a Squarespace noob.
1. The objective: to populate a Squarespace page with data/html from a backend system, using Ajax.
2. Testing javascript: I've created a Code Block on a page, and added some simple, vanilla javascript:
<div id="displayDiv"></div>
<script type="javascript">
document.getElementById("displayDiv").innerHTML ="<h2>Omkara's lab block</h2>";
3. As expected I get a "Embedded scripts" for the block and are asked to "view in safe mode"
4. Once I enter safe preview mode I am (as expected) told to log out and view the page

However, once logged out I can not view the page as the site is in development and hence not published!
What am I missing here?

Also, if anyone knows of other waya to include data from another system without using Ajax (which may cause issues), it would be cool to know about them
