Images added with code block spontaneously deleted

Hi there!

I have an issue getting images spotaneously deleted after adding on my webpage.

Specifically, I added a custom code block to images so that clicking on images takes to external links and fire GA tracking code to track user behaviour.

Is there a way to get around having images deleted from the database and ending up with a blank image?  Or have I done something wrong?  The code works at least a week or so.

- Troubled page, screenshot attached: https://www.hogushi-taro.com/links-staging

- Custom HTML code:  pasted at the end of this post

- Images in the custom code block:  For some unknown reason, the images in the code block have all disappeared from the uploaded image database.  Don't know specifically when.

- FYI, steps taken:

  1. added the images to the web page using the "Add Image" functionality
  2. published live
  3. inspected element to find the image URL
  4. pasted image URL to img scr= code
  5. removed images from the web page but not from the uploaded image database483457865_2021-03-0316_56_50.thumb.png.94c0db3e81daf90a9b6e6664eef7ece4.png

Thanks very much for your help in advance!

SquareSpace in their infinite wisdom will delete "unused" images from your library. They don't recognize custom code images as being used. Having this same issue on blog posts where i use custom code to make author headshots/bio.

Honestly, I'm migrating my website to WordPress soon. There are so many aggravating and unsolvable issues such as this one with SS that should not exist on a professional web platform. Image management is a basic feature.
