For my nodejs server I was just using cors module to solve the problem. I installed a plugin for wordpress that allows all origins links, but still get No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://localhost:8888' is therefore not allowed access.

I think I need to solve the cors problem inside the javascript file itself. I'm using axios for rest api requests so I don't know how to solve this correctly.

My JS ajax call:

axios.get('rest api server here')
    .then(function (question) {
      var data =;

  const questions = [];
  $.each(data, function(index, value) {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(value.the_question, null, "\t"))
    console.log(JSON.stringify(value.the_answer, null, "\t"))
    console.log(JSON.stringify(value.the_choices, null, "\t"))
    questions.push(new Question(value.the_question, value.the_choices, value.the_answer)) .....
