    Does anyone have any info on how to embed html code from http://postcodes.io/ into squarespace?

    Hi there
    What kind of functionality are you trying to achieve

    Hi, we are using postcodes.io and last night we did a performance test where it seems like postcodes.io may have blacklisted our ip address and now we cant get any traffic through

    Hey there, I’ll take a look
    It’s likely cloudflare have blocked your IP after seeing the traffic
    Could you share the response code / error you’re seeing? Or just timeouts?

    Hi Team,
    I am new to postcode.io, is this service free to use?
    are there any limit for number of requests?

    Hi, when searching for addresses using lookupPostcode() flats are not returned - when using https://ideal-postcodes.co.uk/postcode-lookup the flats are returned (try n33sn)
    what endpoint or library method should we be using to return all addresses?
    Christopher Blanchard

    Hi there
    There are 8 addresses in that postcode which live in a separate dataset called Multiple Residence https://ideal-postcodes.co.uk/guides/multiple-residence
    You can use the guide to find out if you really need this dataset. If you do, we can migrate your key(s) for you if you drop a message into the chat widget in your dashboard

    When using lookupAddress() are the postcodes space sensitive? For example lookupAddress({ client, query: '1 Oak Bank FK2 9RP' }) returns the address we are looking for lookupAddress({ client, query: '1 Oak Bank FK29RP' }) does not return any addresses with that postcode
    we are trying to clean and sanitise some address data - what is the correct api to use? (the postcodes do not contain spaces)
    using filters in the query dont seems to work either

    This seems to do the trick...
    addresses.list(client, { query: {
          api_key,
          postcode: profile.postCode,
          q: profile.address
        } });

    That’s the way to do it - the postcode filter will only return results on the matching set
