Redirect default Product Detail page (Not Possible as per my devs)

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.conflictgames.com/products

I want to redirect the product detail page for each of our products. We have created nice hero pages to replace the defaults generated by Squarespace. 

For example: Go to conflictgames.com/products and click on any of the first products to show. You will be sent to the default, not very attractive Squarespace page. 

Now, if you go back to the products page, and refresh the page so the code injection footer loads. You will find the link has changed to a better page with more of a hero page feel. 


The problem is the footer injection code does not load until after the refresh. Therefore, most customers won't see the hero pages. 

How can we fix this? 

For example, can we force a direct on the default page?

Or, move the injection code to a place that loads earlier?

My dev can't figure it out. 

thanks in advance for the replies.

paul2009 has a nice article on Ajax and some of the ins and outs.

Why does Squarespace code only work on refresh?

In the article he describes some ways to make code Ajax compatible. Assuming you decide you want to keep Ajax on.

OMG. Turning off the ajax loading fixed the issue. The code is loading without a refresh! thank you Creedon. Is there any downside to turing off ajax? 

You can place your code inside squarespace ajax load event

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', init);
window.addEventListener('mercury:load', init);

function init(){
  // javscript goes here
