Missing "displayExcerpt" and "displayTitle" fields on the front page. Code and schema provided. Query needs to fetch those fields. Issue resolved with help.

I got to the post page title and excerpt working in the post page, but i am missing the "displayExcerpt" and "displayTitle" on the front page. A little unsure what I'm missing, I swapped "titles" and "excerpt" for "hero. post" and "more.articels" to "displayTitle" and "displayExcerpt". What am I doing wrong?

Hi, will this be followed up?

Hey User! As I recall from your previous thread, you'll need to do two things:1. Make sure your query is fetching those fields
2. Make sure you're rendering the data that's fetched.
Feel free to share your current code and I can take a look again.

Is this correct?

That looks correct. What does it look like on your frontend?

import Container from '../components/container'
import MoreArticles from '../components/more-articles'
import HeroPost from '../components/hero-post'
import Navbar from '../components/Navbar'
import Layout from '../components/layout'
import { getAllPostsForHome } from '../lib/api'
import Head from 'next/head'
import styles from '../styles/Home.module.scss'

export default function Index({ allPosts, preview }) {
  const heroPost = allPosts[0]
  const morePosts = allPosts.slice(1)
  return (
      <Layout preview={preview}>
          <title>******* | ******</title>
        <Navbar />
          {heroPost && (
          {morePosts.length > 0 && <MoreArticles posts={morePosts} />}

export async function getStaticProps({ preview = false }) {
  const allPosts = await getAllPostsForHome(preview)
  return {
    props: { allPosts, preview },
    revalidate: 1
Displayexcerpt and displayTitle doesn't show.

user M
was this what you meant? Please let me know so I can learn how to get it right! ☺️

Can you share your repo?

Got it. Your query isn't fetching 'displayExcerpt' or 'displayTitle', so there's not data to render in your component.

How do I make the query fetch ‘displayExcerpt’ and ‘displayTitle’ in the component?
Nov 2, 2021, 10:19 PM
You could need to add it to the
const here .
Nov 2, 2021, 10:21 PM
Thanks! It worked now 👍
Nov 2, 2021, 10:24 PM
Nice! Glad we got it sorted out!
