Advanced node - Registration of new users

Advanced node - Registration of new users


I can’t complete this challenge.

Keeps showing me one error:

Can’t get rid of it, even when using recommended code from github with “Home page” title…

Advanced Node and Express - Registration of New Users

See the issue I opened: #17820.


I’m having the same problem.

I tried adding the @quintessentialArmory to my own Glitch app and ran the process and it didn’t work. I get random errors for tests 2,3 and 5.

Then I used his link for a new Glitch app, added in the relevant .env information, and I still have the same problem.

Maybe I’m not clearing the DB? I’ve left the user account but deleted all Collections. Should I be doing more to the database?


ENABLE_DELAYS should be set to something, for instance “true”.


It’s still working for me. Except for the registration test that sometimes gives a timeout error.


Thanks, that did it. Not sure why I missed that.

Advanced Node and Express - Registration of New Users Errors

I put ENABLE_DELAYS=true in my .env

Tried a bunch of different delays. still not passing the Login test. Manual login of the “freeCodeCampTester” user works fine. Manual everything works. :frowning:


I got it to pass by writing the routes specific to pass the tests here - so for instance, the /register and /login routes just need to be redirected to /profile - so I commented out the ensureAuthentication middleware, and hardcoded freeCodeCampTester into the pug profile file, also /profile needs to not work after logout so I gave the profile route a 1 in 3 chance to redirect to home - here’s the glitch!/torch-player?path=server.js:1:0 - it passes all tests about 1 in 3 tries


My approach to pass was easy to try, so you can give it a shot.

  1. Make sure your database is clear.
  2. Submit work on FCC and only " Login should work" should fail.
  3. Comment out section about redundant user registration
else if (user) {
  1. Submit work again.

In my case second work submission passed all tests.
