It really doesn't make sense that the 'edit' button has been moved to new location, meaning you have to click twice while the + and the quote button stay in the same place?

I like the new way. Prominent options should be the ones we want as admin, e.g. creating new posts. Editing posts can count as a “secondary” option.

Will there be any documentation about how to use the GraphQL API or a tool like GraphQL Explorer to test queries out?

We might be able to put some documentation together for that eventually.

Essentially you obtain an access token through the OAuth2 client, and then you can use a GraphQL tool to send GraphQL queries. Many such tools support auto-documenting the available fields and response values. I use GraphiQL personally.

Hello, I would like to turn my new admin dark theme (4.5) to white theme (like it was before),

Login to ACP > click your picture in the top right and click theme and choose light.

Hi,

Over on our Forum at CGC we have a journals section for our members which looks like this:

https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/blogs/?view=grid

Following a recent upgrade a new feature has appeared - 'Entry Category Name' - see screenshot below:

What is the purpose of an 'Entry Category' and how is it of use to members? Can it be bypassed?

Thanks for any help

😎

The entry category allows your members to create categories for their blog entries. It's not currently something that can be switched off currently.

Thanks Matt - to what end though may I ask? How does adding a category to a blog entry differentiate it from any other - visually or otherwise? Where does it show for example? Is it searchable?

I have a blog (we call them journals) with entries under the overall journal umbrella heading. If I call one entry under that umbrella 'Dave' for example, where does that show and what is the significance?

Sorry if I'm being thick  🧐
