Something is wrong: Get Data from post Requests

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
Nothing is working. i read posts on the forum and applied the suggestions, nothing is working.

I even copy/pasted the solution offered by fcc itself but it’s NOT working. So then, what works?"/name", function(req, res) {
// Handle the data in the request
var string = req.body.first + " " + req.body.last;
res.json({ name: string });

Your project link(s)

Challenge: Get Data from POST Requests

Link to the challenge:

You need bodyParser middleware in order to use req.body.something
index.html probably too, req.body.something is some data from a form

Sorry but I don’t understand your english

You need to add this to make the middleware work

app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({extended: false}))

Thanks for your answer.
I don’t know if it’s nodejs that’s broken of if it’s fcc way of teaching it that’s broken but I’m done with learning nodejs for backend. I never want to hear about it again.
