Common Problem

Some Squarespace themes use AJAX loading. This can keep the map from loading properly. If you disable AJAX loading in your theme, the problem will go away. Squarespace has instructions on how to disable AJAX loading. If AJAX loading is required, please contact us for code and instructions to workaround this issue.

As of December, 2017, some cheaper SquareSpace plans no longer support Code Blocks. You can check whether your plan supports Code Blocks via this SquareSpace page. If your SquareSpace plan doesn't support Code Blocks you won't be able to use SimpleMaps (or any other third-party scripts). In this case, you should contact SquareSpace to upgrade (or complain!).
