The schema generator will expose a
field for your Portable Text, but in order to resolve references you need to use one of our source plugins for Gatsby or Gridsome .

For example, Gatsby source allows you to do the following:
  allSanityProject {
    edges {
      node {
        _rawTasks(resolveReferences: {maxDepth: 5})

I have the basic
field, I'm using
. Previously i've looked into the
field but couldn't figure out how to use it in this stack.

Got it. You unfortunately can't pass the
argument unless you're using one of those source plugins.

Yeah, it's a no 😞 . But since you're using a Next frontend, have you considered making a change over to using GROQ as your query language? It has a much more intuitive way of handling references within Portable Text.

yeah in hindsite it would be better to do this. Are you able to create chunks of a GROQ call and stitch them? i.e one for each CMS module (we have a modular CMS)

GROQ queries are strings. You can concatenate them or use template literals with string interpolation. for example:

Yeah, the great thing about GROQ is that you can stitch information together across any document in your dataset. There's a really good intro here . It's only simple examples, but it'll give you a look at how powerful it is.
