Last updated: Jul 31, 2023
Hello everyone, quick intro, Im User an aspiring creative technologist, have recently dabbled with nextjs and now Im starting up onto Sanity.
I have been following this tutorial - I have followed all the steps up to 37:18 and when I navigate to localhost:3000/admin, it says I have no document types

Any clue how I can solve this problem, happy to share code with whoever is willing to help.

Big thanks in advance. Sorry in advance for coding newbie-ness

So sounds like sanity isnt picking up any definitions. In the tutorial project you can see the config file here - I would check if your schema objects are coming through properly

Check your
file to see if the schemas that you have defined are included in the
like here .You can then check if that
is included in the
file like here .

Can you folks identify any problems with these as I have tried what you just mentioned, and nothing you suggested seem to make a difference. I really appreciate your help
