I have a login page that uses a custom FlaskForm (using WTForms). If a user enters the correct credentials, a PostgreSQL database is successfully queried (using flask-sqlalchemy) to see if a user with that name and (hashed) password exists. If there is such a user, login_user(user) is ran, and the user should be redirected to the homepage of my site.

I have implemented flask-login (as per the online documentation), but when a user provides valid credentials for logging in, they are redirected back to the login page (as if they had not provided valid credentials). I am using Google Chrome.

Below are the files/classes I have imported in my file application.py, and below those is a screenshot of the command line output when a user tries to log in and the situation in the above paragraph occurs. A list of the versionsof what I am using is below the screenshot.

I have determined that after redirecting to the homepage, the current_user is of type AnonymousUserMixin (even though current user in the login function is of type User (which I have defined, inheriting all methods from UserMixin).

Thank you in advance for your help!
