Customized a button for my nonprofit page- now API won't show unless I "refresh" page

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.simplythebasics.org/hygienebankdatabase

Hi! I have created two customized buttons on this page  that will take you to two different pages - both pages are embedded with a map and list of members in our membership. (map & members integrated from another site)

When I click on the buttons from the original linked page, the buttons will take me to the desired page but the map & members do not show up until I refresh the page. Once refreshed, then they show up just fine.

Is it my code? Is it Squarespace? One of the 3rd party sites told me to turn off Ajax but I heard that could slow down the site altogether. 

Code shown below & attached is a video of the error.

Thank you!

 

Code:

   <style>
  .button {
  text-align: center;
    color: #96c5a5;
  display:inline-block;
width: 220px;
        margin: 50px;
  height: 220px;
  padding: 20px 20px;
  border-radius: 20px;
  background: #ffffff;
  border: 5px solid #cee7d6;
  cursor: pointer;
    font-size: 15px;
  transition: all 200ms ease;
  box-shadow: rgba(37, 39, 89, 0.08) 0px 8px 8px 0;
  font-family: Poppins;
      }
  .intro{
    color: #565656;
      font-size: 25px;
  }
  .button:hover{
    background: #cee7d6;
    color: #565656!important;
    border: 5px solid #ffffff !important;
  }
    </style>
  </head>
  <body>
  <center>
  <a href="/giving-to-hygiene-banks" class="button"><span class="intro">Would you like to donate Hygiene Supplies?</span><br><br>Locate Community Hygiene Providers in Your Area!<br/></a>
  <a href="/hygiene-search" class="button"><span class="intro">Are you in need of Hygiene Supplies?</span><br><br>Locate Hygiene & Service Providers in your Area!<br/></a>
  </body>

Ajax is designed to improve load times. You have to decide if turning off Ajax is worth your code being able to function.

Is disabling Ajax my only option

Short term yes.

is there a better way to write the code so this doesn't occur?

This is problematic when you are using a library of code. There is no easy way to alter the code.
