I’m having a serious issue with Multilingualizer on my SquareSpace cover page: the cover page instructions do not make sense for cover pages and attempting to add the script to the cover page header yields a completely white page. I’m using the Brine family template, though that shouldn’t matter for cover pages.
Multilingualizer here states you need to add the footer code located in “footer.txt” to use Multilingualizer on SquareSpace cover pages. The problems:

  1. Cover pages do not have a footer text area.
  2. No such “footer.txt” file exists anywhere on this site. The only footer code found in “My Account” is for a language selector, not the actual script. We aren’t using the language selector.
  3. Adding the header script into the cover page header yields a completely blank page.

How exactly do you make this work? Here’s what we’ve added, straight copied from My Account:

Here is what we got (completely blank)

A workaround: Go to My Account. Generate the code. Then scroll down to “Option 2” and copy the text from Language Selector Code Box. It says it’s for footers; ignore that–we’re also going to delete the language selector. Copy that onto your SquareSpace header and delete the second half that starts with <style>.
Save and open into a private tab: voila!

It’s still buggy: the first load shows the header code injection, which is quite unsightly. Do the developers know the right solution or a way to fix this code showing up?
