Is that deleted document path still in your URL?

(it may be a invalid value on the slug field)
Mar 11, 2021, 9:44 PM
noticed that it was a string in the other thread
Mar 11, 2021, 9:44 PM
slug: { current: 'the-slug' }

☝️ slugs should be objects like this

yes it is a string, but it's not in my url anymore.It also still gets listed in the doc list view and crashes as soon as i click it.
Might be able to delete it with the js client, as modifying it with the desk is not an option anymore.

if you're close to the devs, this should be catched if you ask me and i could reproduce it if that helps

You can also edit the JSON directly in a code editor if you run:
sanity documents create --id &lt;the _id&gt; --replace --watch

This sounds great, but what I get when executing this is
  "_id": "TYqXdZEMYoJWq965vytff8",
  "_type": "specify-me"
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

sanity documents create --id 'abf5ef5c-fa73-4df7-8bdb-bf3945ba7cf0' --replace --watch
Did you run it like this with the
of the docs you're trying to fix?

Figured it out. It was unpublished, so I had to prepend the id with
. Deleted it via client with that and now it's clean
