Hey there, tried this out but not sure why it's off for me
*[_type == 'article'] {
    "numberOfCharacters": pt::text(articleRichText),
    "estimatedWordCount": round(length(pt::text(articleRichText)) / 5),
    "estimatedReadingTime": round(length(pt::text(articleRichText)) / 5 / 180)
this is the error i get back in Vision, which is odd

expected '}' following object body

*[_type == 'article'] {

Line:   0
Column: 22
because if i leave this out... it works just fine? idk

Can you share the url Vision gives you for that query? I'll play around with it.

reading the docs for
, and I think i'm doing it right? basically i want to target the parent field that has the rich text right? https://www.sanity.io/docs/groq-functions#7a2e04177fe6

The url for it will be usable since your content is hosted by us, even when the Studio isn't deployed. After you click 'Fetch' you'll see the url above the results.

Ok got it ! It looks like you were passing
instead of
. I think the issue originally was the API version.
