Please help me configure the wiring for this TFT display.

I’ve tried using the Waveshare TFT display with both the Sparkfun Pro Micro and the Raspberry Pico but had very little success. Only the backlight of the display lights up. The 1.3inch TFT display works with the Pico using the connections above. I used a 2 inch display with the Arduino Uno. The screen works fine on the Uno.

I used Python code from Erik's blogpost for the drivers which worked on the 1.3 inch display using the Pico, and code from Adafruit to run the 2inch display on the Raspberry Pi. I attempted using Adafruit's code using the Sparkfun Pro Micro but only had backlights.

Below is the wiring connections list I started making while testing the screens. Some connections might be wrong as I am still figuring things out.

Yes, you are wiring wrong. At their page, check the tabs, the connections are there for each board, also the example code.
