Members Only Wix Page - How to pass parameter to Caspio DataPage


Question

So I have a Wix page already set up and the table DataPage works fine except it is stuck on the parameter value I originally set.

The ideal solution here is that when a user logs in, Wix passes/creates a parameter [@email_address].  This is already set as a unique value in a Caspio table.  From there I can get [@player_id] which would then be used as authentication in the datapae,

I just need a way to take the sign in from Wix and use that to define the authentication for the datapage. 

If this isn't possible, then I will have to create a two tiered login for all users (1 for the site and a second for data entry).  All users are intended to enter data so it seems unnecessarily redundant.

Hi, Wix deploys datapages in iframe and it's impossible to pass parameters from/to datapages or use scripts with redirection

I would suggest selecting another CMS like weebly, wordpress.org, godaggy, etc.

thanks anyway, but telling someone to scrap everything they have and use something different isn't a solution. 

The follow-up question of course is there a way to communicate in and out of iframe.  Caspio gives the option to deploy into iframes.  Would that make any difference?  It would seem odd and a gross oversight to me (a non programmer) that anyone would produce a technology that is a black box.
