why is my recycler view only showing 1 card

Issue

the app is used to sign up for events. Now I am unable to display more then one card in the recycler view even though there is data in the database.it only would display only the first row of data. I know this as I have deleted the first row and the app shows the new first row.
The php works as i have loaded the page and it gives me the data from the database.

        </LinearLayout>

    </androidx.cardview.widget.CardView>

</LinearLayout>

Solution

It is because the LinearLayout of the card has match_parent as its layout_height and layout_width so it is taking up the whole space. Can you try to scroll the card up?

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"       <-------- here
    android:layout_height="match_parent">.    <-------- here

The layout_height should be wrap_content.
