Image Uploaded to WYSIWYG - Link Provided on the Sanity CDN Doesn't Work

26 replies
Last updated: Jul 19, 2022
We have out blog on a react website using Sanity (and it all works very nicely) but when we include an image in the WYSIWYG the image link provided on the Sanity CDN doesn't work. Has anyone experienced this before?

What does “doesn’t work” mean in that context?

Sorry, that was vague!
I mean it provides a link to an image for the img tag to load, but when you navigate to/try to load that image it says not found.
Its as if the image isn't hosted at all

What does the link look like?

Sorry for taking so long!


So I've been digging in all afternoon and my theory is its sanity url builder issue, because its returning undefined/undefined as above

Right, right. Where did you get that URL please? 🙂

From the image that fails to load on the post itself.
So I've tried a few things this afternoon, and hoping one of them can help tell you what my issue is haha!

So when I don't use urlBuilder from sanity/image-url it shows as error saying I need to import the image component into the PortableText component as a prop.

So I create an image component, and use the url builder example from the sanity website and it give undefined/undefined

This is where I am copying from

Can you show me both your query and the JSX for your image please?

Image component:

import { PortableText } from "@portabletext/react";
import urlBuilder from "@sanity/image-url";
import { getImageDimensions } from "@sanity/asset-utils";

// Barebones lazy-loaded image component
const BlogImage = ({ value, isInline }) => {
  const { width, height } = getImageDimensions(value);
  return (
      {/* eslint-disable-next-line @next/next/no-img-element */}
          .width(isInline ? 100 : 800)
        alt={value.alt || " "}
          // Display alongside text if image appears inside a block text span
          display: isInline ? "inline-block" : "block",

          //   // Avoid jumping around with aspect-ratio CSS property
          //   aspectRatio: width / height,

export default BlogImage;

PortableText component usage:

                types: {
                  image: BlogImage,

I got it.
Jul 18, 2022, 3:22 PM
You don’t pass your project/dataset to the URL builder.
Jul 18, 2022, 3:22 PM
Which is why you get undefined/undefined.
Jul 18, 2022, 3:22 PM
Oh my word

Sorry... I know this is probably obvious but I'm going stir crazy, where do I find the details for my sanity config?
Jul 18, 2022, 3:28 PM
In your sanity.json typically?
