Hello, I'm following this step https://www.sanity.io/guides/build-your-first-blog-using-react and my output is in the screen shot. There is a blog, author, and tag already created. It is not posting on the localhost:3000.
The projectId and dataset has been entered in already.

Hello Geoff, that is the results at the end of the guide

At this part of the guide, it goes over CORS Origins. You’ll want to add
<http://localhost:3000>
(ensure it’s
http
and not
https
).

If you go to http://localhost:3000/testing , does that work?
Also, just to confirm, did you name the file AllPost.js or AllPosts.js?
Jul 13, 2021, 6:25 PM
I apologize for my typeo it's AllPosts.js
Jul 13, 2021, 6:27 PM
when I go to /testing it is showing loading...
Jul 13, 2021, 6:29 PM
Okay. It seems like we’re never getting anything back from the query. That could be several things—including a CORS issue—so just to be positive could you run
sanity cors list
from your sanity folder in your terminal?
Jul 13, 2021, 6:41 PM
Is port 3000 also there?
Jul 13, 2021, 6:43 PM
localhost:3333 will be your Sanity studio. Your front end will run on port 3000 at http://localhost:3000 .
Jul 13, 2021, 6:43 PM
If you type
sanity cors add <http://localhost:3000>
then choose
no
, you can try your site again in the browser.
Jul 13, 2021, 6:44 PM
Yes, there is 3000 and 3333
Jul 13, 2021, 6:57 PM
Yes, there is 3000 and 3333
Jul 13, 2021, 6:57 PM
Yes, there is 3000 and 3333
Jul 13, 2021, 6:57 PM
the problem is it required img

                  {/*<img
                    className="w-full h-full rounded-r object-cover absolute"
                    src={post.mainImage.asset.url}
                    alt=""
                  />*/}
Jul 13, 2021, 7:01 PM
That error is appearing because there’s no
mainImage
. If you add one to your post, it should go away. You probably also want to check that
mainImage
exists before rendering it out (like you did with
{allPostsData && ...


Yes, there is 3000 and 3333
Interesting. I’m afraid I don’t know what the problem is then.
Jul 13, 2021, 7:01 PM
Now it is working
Jul 13, 2021, 7:01 PM
What you told me to do with CORS has fixed it 🙂
Jul 13, 2021, 7:01 PM
Thank you
