# Im struggling with get block

It's probably because of CORS. I just tested, and yes, you need a CORS proxy for it to work (unless you have access to the whole website setup, then you can do something to get it to work without a CORS proxy)

but it has a cors thing though

Did you set up the website? If so, you could try setting the CORS policy to any site.

By the way, this is out of my skillset, you'd need to google how to do it yourself.

Use a CORS Proxy. Try requesting

You can enable cors by adding a file called _headers in the root directory, and putting /* Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * in the _headers file. Optionally, you can set the * part to the website that will be sending requests to the server.

um what

wdym by "what" I cant help you if you just say "what"

Do you think im hosting this?

Root directory is the first directory you enter. Like on a PC, the root directory is the C: drive.
