Help! Slideshows do not work after I hit the back button on the browser!

Recommended Posts


Squarespace says this is a known problem, and won't commit to fixing it! I'm a little mad, as this should be common functionality.

On my home page I have a slideshow and an animated gif as a section background. If I navigate to another page, and then use the back button on my browser, the slideshow will not work, and the animated gif does not load.

I even created a fresh new page thinking it might be something in the code or SS version. The problem persists with the slideshow.

Does anyone have a solution? Squarespace does not.

Please post the URL for a page on your site where we can see your issue.

If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so.

Post the password here.

Adding a site-wide password does not allow anyone to alter your site. It only allows those with the password to see your site. Please read the documentation at the link provided to understand how it works.

Please read the documentation at the link provided on how to share a link to your site to understand how it works. A link to the backend of the your site won’t work for us, i.e. a url that contains /config/.

We can then take a look at your issue.
