Adapting Webflow's JavaScript Code to Interface with Xano

In this meeting, the State Changers focused on using Xano and jQuery AJAX code to better handle information transfers with Webflow. The aim was to modify Xano headers nested within AJAX requests in a properly formatted JSON object, with the practical application being the refinement of an affiliate program submission form. Based on the observed behavior, it was made clear that it was the default Webflow operations that were managing the information flow to Xano, not the custom JavaScript. Hence, to prevent redirection and manage an asynchronous process, the JavaScript would need to be modified.

There were several attempts to debug the implementation, such as specifying the form's ID in the jquery submit event and adding console logs. A key issue was a missing comma causing syntax errors. This error was fixed which allowed the addition of a custom header in the $.ajax() request to work correctly. To better utilize this functionality, the Code was constructed in a more reusable form allowing easy replication for other scenarios where AJAX is used to send data. Discussions also suggested that using 'Wiz' might have expedited this process, an aspect the participating member indicated they would explore. Consequently, the goal of this meeting seemed to be understanding, troubleshooting, and enhancing the integration of Xano, Webflow, and custom JavaScript aspects.
