Hey all, let’s say I have content types ‘StandardPost’ and ‘ReviewPost’. They are identical except review post has the extra fields ‘rating’, ‘pros’ and ‘cons’. I want my Category pages to list and sort all posts, regardless of whether they are StandardPost or ReviewPost. Would the following GROQ query be valid and accomplish this?
*[_type == “standardPost” || _type == “reviewPost”] | order(_createdAt desc)

If it does, that’d be awesome. AFAIK sorting wouldn’t be possible with GraphQL unless you wrap them in a ‘Post’ type which would reference reviewPost or standardPost (really messy).

. I haven't actually started using Sanity (I'm considering it for this reason, actually). But from the playground, it seems possible. However, I take it this would mean I'd have to stay away from Gatsby as that enforces the GraphQL API

I see. I decided on Sanity over a few others and have been very happy with it so far. I’ve never used this plugin personally as I haven’t built anything with Gatsby and Sanity, but this may be worth checking out:

Interesting. I prefer to stick with official libraries so I think I'll skip Gatsby, since I was already planning to try something on the new release of NextJS

Your query will work but you can simplify it like this

*[_type in ["standardPost", "reviewPost"]]
