Error in Capitalize

I get this error every time I use the built in wp apis. If I write my own handlers, everything works just fine. Am I doing something wrong?

ypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined
    at __webpack_exports__.default (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@frontity/wp-source/src/libraries/handlers/utils/capitalize.ts:2:73)
    at Object.eval (webpack-internal:///./node_modules/@frontity/wp-source/src/libraries/handlers/taxonomy.ts:9:300)

This sounds like it might be a bug in frontity.

Could you share the URL of the wordpress rest api that you’re using so that I can verify it with a clean frontity project or test your API with the codesandbox or a clean frontity project using npx frontity create capitalizeError?

Sure thing. Here’s the WP dev endpoint:

Hi @mayer.georgep were you able to resolve the problem?

Which built in WP APIs were you referring to here :point_up_2:?

Hi - no, not yet. It’s any of the postType calls. Here’s the trace:

Here’s the route:

Here’s the endpoint it’s hitting:

All seems to work just fine. Just hits a npe on that capitalize call. I’ve been overriding the handlers and that seems to work fine, but a bit of a pain.


What are the /stories in your application? Is it a category? A tag? A custom postType?

@mayer.georgep In order to give you more effective support, It would be really helpful if you could provide us with a way to reproduce and/or debug the problem you’re facing :slight_smile:

Looks like this problem to me:

@mayer.georgep can you check it out and confirm?
