Troubleshooting Authentication Issues in Webflow and Xano
In this meeting, the State Changers discussed a technical problem involving an authentication token. They encountered an issue with a login process in an application using various technologies, including AJAX, JSON, and a system called Xano.
The main problem was that the login process returned a zero value for a field which was not expected. They identified that the issue was related to the application making a get request instead of a post request during the login process. Despite setting the form to post in the code, it was still being sent as a get request due to a misinterpretation of the code by the system handling the form submission.
After examining the Webflow and Xano environments, they edited the form submission code in the Webflow HTML embed to correct this issue. They changed the method from "get" to "post," which resolved the issue of the form being sent incorrectly.
The conversation also touched on other related topics such as dealing with authentication in general, handling specific use cases, and the need to isolate problem areas in the code.
Overall, the meeting resulted in the successful identification and solution of a critical login issue, and further, highlighted the need for future discussion on handling authentication and form submission processes. Consequently, the meeting provided insights into debugging login problems involving form requests.
