Help with calling backend

Hi, i am quite new working with backend. I am having an issue that once the button is clicked, nothing basically happens. Can someone could help with the code and maybe find the mistake why i cannot call code from backend? Maybe i missed some basics in both front end and backend? I also suspect some issues with backend URL address.


export function button1_click(event, data) {
    $w("#button1").disable(); // Disable the button to prevent multiple clicks
    console.log("Insert content scan");
    let toInsert = {
        "email": $w("#emailinput").value,
        "title": $w("#titleinput").value
    fetch('/backend/Registration-checkuser.jsw', { // Update endpoint to match backend web module
        method: 'POST',
        headers: {
            'Content-Type': 'application/json'
        body: JSON.stringify(toInsert)
    .then((response) => {
        if (response.ok) {
            return response.json();
        } else {
            throw new Error('Error: ' + response.status);
    .then((results) => {
        let item = results;
    .catch((err) => {
        let errorMsg = err;


import wixData from 'wix-data';

export function button1_click(request) {
    const email =;
    const title = request.body.title;

    // Remove spaces from the beginning and end of title
    const formattedTitle = title.trim();

    // Capitalize first letter of each word in the formattedTitle
    const words = formattedTitle.split(' ');
    const capitalizedWords = => {
        return word.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + word.slice(1);
    const formattedTitleCapitalized = capitalizedWords.join(' ');

    // Extract first name and last name from the formattedTitleCapitalized
    const [firstName, ...lastNameArray] = formattedTitleCapitalized.split(' ');
    const lastName = lastNameArray.join(' ');

    // Create an object to insert into the "nsflMain" collection
    const toInsert = {
        "email": email,
        "title": formattedTitleCapitalized,
        "firstName": firstName,
        "lastName": lastName

    return wixData.insert("datasetname", toInsert)
        .then((results) => {
            return {
                success: true,
                data: results
        .catch((err) => {
            return {
                success: false,
                error: err

Thanks guys!


Hello @juozmant ,

To use a backend function, you should import it into your document using the as follows:

import module from '<directory location>'
// Or
import { functionA, constantB } from '<directory location>'

In your case, the import statement should be:

import { saveData } from 'backend/Registration-checkuser.jsw'

This assumes that saveData is an exported function in a file located on the backend under this directory ‘backend/Registration-checkuser.jsw’.

Note: I can’t make sense of the code above or tell anything about it except that it registers some data.

Hope this helps.
