Background images not appearing... AGAIN

Recommended Posts

Our background images all across our website have turned gray again. Last time this was a coding issue and we were able to insert a line of code that brought the images back. I tried the same code again (I know next to nothing about coding) and nothing changed.

this is the current code. it is in the box for the footer. it includes the code i inserted at the top.


<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.1.min.js">

    (function (storeId) {
        document.addEventListener("pageChange", function () {
        }, false);

        function loadEcwid() {
            var containerId = 'my-store-' + storeId;
            var container = document.getElementById(containerId);
            var isEcwidPage = container != null;
            var ecwidLoaded = isEcwidPage && container.childNodes.length > 0;
            if (ecwidLoaded && isEcwidPage) return;
            if (!isEcwidPage) {
                window.ecwid_nocssrewrite = true;

            window.ecwid_script_defer = true;
            window.ecwid_dynamic_widgets = true;
            window.css_selectors_prefix = encodeURIComponent('div#' + containerId);

            initEcwidIfNecessary(container, true);

        function initializeScripts() {
            var initializationScripts = [{
                "widgetType": "ProductBrowser",
                "id": "my-store-" + storeId,
                "arg": ["categoriesPerRow=3", "views=grid(20,3) list(60) table(60)", "categoryView=grid", "searchView=list", "id=my-store-" + storeId, "defaultProductId=" + getValueSave("my-store-" + storeId, "data-default-product-id"), "defaultCategoryId=" + getValueSave("my-store-" + storeId, "data-default-category-id")]
            if (document.getElementById('my-search-' + storeId)) {
                    "widgetType": "SearchWidget",
                    "id": "my-search-" + storeId,
                    "arg": ["id=my-search-" + storeId]
            if (document.getElementById('my-categories-' + storeId)) {
                    "widgetType": "CategoriesV2",
                    "id": "my-categories-" + storeId,
                    "arg": ["id=my-categories-" + storeId]
            window._xnext_initialization_scripts = initializationScripts;

        function initEcwidIfNecessary(container, reset) {
            if (typeof Ecwid != 'undefined') {
                if (reset) {

            } else {

                var script = document.createElement('script');
                script.charset = 'utf-8';
                script.type = 'text/javascript';
                script.id = 'ecwid-script';

                    var c = a[b];
                    if ("attributes" === c.type) {
                        var targetId = c.target[observedAttributeName];
                        if (dispatchedId && dispatchedId === targetId) return;
                        dispatchedId = targetId;
                        var d = new Event("pageChange");
            a.observe(document.body, {attributes: !0, attributeFilter: [observedAttributeName]})

        function getValueSave(id, attribute) {
            var node = document.querySelector("#" + id);
            return !node

As I explained in another thread, Squarespace made changes to the page markup for sections, adding a section-border class and this will have affected any code that referred to section-background classes. You'll need to update the custom code accordingly.
