Solution 1 :

I dont think you can achieve this just using JS. You will have to rely on some storage mechanism . Because we are dealing with page reloads.

  1. Offload some logic to the backend. Keep track of things via cookies(session storage).
  2. Use local storage to keep track of these links.

Solution 2 :

You will most probably benifit from storing the html data just before your reload action to recall after page reload.

You could store the info in a database, as a cookie, as a session variable or maybe even in a txt file then recall (and optionally delete) the data on page reload.

As Umendra mentioned this is because we are dealing with a page reload.

Another option could be to send the data as form data using php POST to self (although I am aware your op does not mention or tag php)

<form action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]); ?>" method="post">

Then recall on post using

<?php echo $_POST['namevaluefromform'] ?>

Problem :

I am trying to create a webpage that has links in a table which are linked to modals that pop up when they are pressed. However these links are appended using Jquery

$("table").append('<tr><td><a href="#exampleModal" data-bs-toggle="modal" data-bs-target="#exampleModal">' + ID +"</a></td><td>" + lastName + "</td><td>"
            + firstName + "</td> <td>" + Course + "</td><td>" + Average + "</td></tr>");

when they are first added into the table, the table and link modals are fine, but when the page is reloaded, the appended code loses some of its text

is there someway to fix this? My first initial thought is to overwrite the previous page’s html to the current’s but I think this is pretty inefficient and im sure there are more efficient ways to do this functionality.
