I'm new to CartoDB and so far impressed. But I'm struggling with how to get a sql query to persist in a visualization. I type it in, like 'SELECT * FROM env_feedlots where active = 'Y' and BIRDS > 0', hit "Apply", and see the effects in the map. But I get a throbber in my browser tab that never seems to die.
And then, when returning to the visualization, it seems the sql query is gone.
Here's a link to my viz: http://cdb.io/1ncUdG7
When you load it up, if you see my sql query, you'll see clusters of dark blue in the central and southeast portions of the state, and very light blues in the southwest. It seems like that works through the "public map" link. But why doesn't it "keep" when I return to the visualization through my dashboard?
Edit: I found a "fix", if I click "clear this sql view", I can start over, re-type the SQL I want, click "Apply", and it will persist. But that begs the question: why can't I ADD to an existing SQL query and have that addition persist?
