Troubleshooting: the calculator doesn't show up unless the page is refreshed or reloaded.

Some newer Squarespace templates use Ajax technology that helps enrich a website with great features, thus improving the user experience and turning old-fashioned static HTML pages into modern web applications. The downside is that when a website has Ajax enabled, most embedded JavaScripts doesn't load properly. Therefore your calculator doesn't appear on a page unless it is refreshed or reloaded. The only solution in such case is to disable Ajax on your website.
