i have a loginform on the startpage of my site (i would like to give the url on request in a private message because its not online yet and the customer is really picky)

the element that triggers the login is a plain submit button but the action of the form in the sourcecode is empty since the submit handler gets cancelled by javascript and a login request is made via ajax.
if the login request is successfull the page gets redirected via javascript.

from what i see in the server logs the post requests only go to the the page itself (since the action in the form is empty) and no ajax request is made to the right endpoint.
should arachni be able to submit forms via ajax? how could i find out whats going wrong?

thanks for hints

    It's hard to tell without access, you can send me the details in private at: tasos.laskos[at]

    Btw, are you auditing the form or are you trying to login via one of the plugins?
    Also, knowing the scan config you used will also be helpful.
