Hey User! can you post the code your using to do the fetch of your data? Looks like there's something slightly off with the request syntax based on the error

Will do that before the next hour

Yes bro,But i have a question,
Dont u think the body of the post in sanity should have been a markdown?
Jan 7, 2021, 8:50 PM
All the headless css i worked with,They were all markdowns and i used the dangerouslySetInnerhtml,

Bt dis one isnt, and its making the body of my post to go off my screen

It's a great philosophical debate ๐Ÿ˜„
By using what we call the Portable Text specification, you can translate custom code in the editor to frontends of all sorts. I've got a studio that powers an email newsletter and blog via different rendering methods (one goes straight to HTML for newsletters and one goes to MD for 11ty, and I could also go straight to React components or Vue, if necessary).

It definitely adds a little bit of overhead and has a learning curve, but in the end can make your content super flexible.

That being said, if you like Markdown, there's a Plugin that gives you a native markdown field:
Also, our friends at Netlify wrote this post about using MDX with Sanity last month:
We love flexibility

Cms i mean not css

so what you can do is use this package to convert the rich text to markdown: https://github.com/sanity-io/block-content-to-markdown
or straight to a react component:

But there's not necessarily anything wrong with grabbing that Markdown plugin and just using markdown, too

User,Am running sanity install markdown in my studio folder,
Bt its giving me an error and saying
Package.json: name contains illegal characters
Jan 7, 2021, 9:18 PM
can you send the full error? Might be an issue in your package.json or might be an issue in the plugin
Jan 7, 2021, 9:45 PM
Thats it

If you have this on GitHub or something similar, can you send me a link to it? There's something wrong in your package.json. If you don't have it in GitHub, copy/paste your package.json into chat here
