Hi Team

I have client side and my back end is trying to retrieve all the items being added to the wishlist but its returning empty to the table and there are no errors when debugging, i think i might be missing something on my logic and need so help.

What I have tried:

<pre><!--adding some items to wishlist-->
        <div class="col-lg-3 col-md-6 col-sm-12 pb-1">
    <div class="card product-item border-0 mb-4">
        <div class="card-header product-img position-relative overflow-hidden bg-transparent border p-0">
            <img class="img-fluid w-100" src="img/wishlist-img/SecondWishlist.jpg" alt="">
        <div class="card-body border-left border-right text-center p-0 pt-4 pb-3">
            <h6 class="text-truncate mb-3">Golf T-Shirt</h6>
            <div class="d-flex justify-content-center">
                <h6 class="text-muted ml-2"><del>R200.00</del></h6>
        <div class="card-footer d-flex justify-content-between bg-light border">
            <a href="" class="btn btn-sm text-dark p-0">View Detail</a>
            <a href="#" class="btn btn-sm text-dark p-0 add-to-wishlist-btn" data-product-id="10"
             data-product-name="Golf T-Shirt"
            ^__i class="fas fa-heart text-danger mr-1">Add To Wishlist</a>

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', async function() {
    // Initialize wishlist count and items
    let wishlistCount = 0;
    let wishlistItems = [];

    // Function to update the wishlist badge count

        document.getElementById("wishlist-badge").textContent = wishlistCount;

    // Function to open the login modal
    function openLoginModal() {

            cell2.innerHTML = `<img src="${item.product_image}" alt="${item.product_name}" class="img-thumbnail">`; // Change this to match your data structure
            cell3.textContent = 'R' + item.product_price.toFixed(2); // Change this to match your data structure
            cell4.textContent = item.quantity; // Change this to match your data structure

    // Load wishlist items and count from the session when the page loads

You need to to stop asking ChatGPT for answers, copying that answer without understanding the code and it's flow and then paste it here for a solution. If you go back to when you started asking questions a year ago, your issues made sense and we were able to help you. Since then most of your recent code is ChatGPT code (easy to spot looking at the code and it's format with comments) which tells me that you are not doing the work yourself, this will start identifying you as a nefarious code vampire.
