Hi. I'm receiving a type error, any ideas? Also, why is it referring to files that don't exist? "pages" . I have a Page.ts.

Started a fresh Nextjs custom-server repo and running into the same error.

    Hmm



    Isn't layout a default field?

    Yea. It works on startup, when I add PortfolioHero as a block it bugs out, I think.



     import { CollectionConfig } from 'payload/types';
    import { MediaType } from './Media';
    import formatSlug from '../utilities/formatSlug';
    import { Image } from '../blocks/Image/Config';
    import { Type as ImageType } from '../blocks/Image/Component';

    import { PortfolioHeroType } from '../blocks/PortfolioHero/PortfolioHero_Component';
    import { PortfolioHero } from '../blocks/PortfolioHero/PortfolioHero_Config';
    
    
    export type Layout = CallToActionType | ContentType | ImageType | PortfolioHeroType
    
    export type Type = {
      title: string
      slug: string
      image?: MediaType
      layout: Layout[]
      meta: {
        title?: string
        description?: string
        keywords?: string
      }
    }
    
    export const Page: CollectionConfig = {
      slug: 'pages',
      admin: {
        useAsTitle: 'title',
      },
      access: {
        read: (): boolean => true, // Everyone can read Pages
      },
      fields: [
        {
          name: 'title',
          label: 'Page Title',
          type: 'text',
          required: true,
        },
        {
          name: 'image',
          label: 'Featured Image',
          type: 'upload',
          relationTo: 'media',
        },
        {
          name: 'layout',
          label: 'Page Layout',
          type: 'blocks',
          minRows: 1,
          blocks: [
            CallToAction,
            Content,
            Image,
            PortfolioHero
          ],
        },
        {
         


    Here's the PortfolioHero type:



     import React from 'react'
    import { MediaType } from '../../collections/Media'
    
    export type PortfolioHeroType = {
        blockType: 'portfoliohero'
        blockName?: string
        thumbnail: MediaType
        title: string;
    }
      
    export const Component: React.FC<Type> = (props) => {
        const { thumbnail, title } = props;
      
        return (
          <div>
            <img src={thumbnail.url} alt={thumbnail.alt} />
            <h1>{title}</h1>
          </div>
        );
      }


    // Config



     import { Block } from 'payload/types';
    
      export const PortfolioHero: Block = {
        slug: 'portfoliohero',
        labels: {
            singular: 'Portfolio Hero',
            plural: 'Portfolio Heroes',
        },
        fields: [
            {
                name: 'title',
                label: 'Title',
                type: 'text',
                required: true,
            },
            {
                type: 'upload',
                name: 'media',
                relationTo: 'media',
                label: 'Thumbnail Media',
                hasMany: false,
                required: true,
            },
        ],
    };


    I've started a third repo and I'm still running into this problem when I try to add a Portfolio block.



    I must be doing something daft.

    @Taun if you could attempt to narrow the issue down that would be great. You can start by commenting out 1 block field at a time, then possibly removing field attributes like required. This would be helpful đź‘Ť

    Ok cool, will do, thanks Jarrod. I've started a new repo and didn't run into that error yet. Today I can't access my admin dashboard, can you or someone on the team please take a look? I'm not receiving a password reset email. Here's the help thread - #Incorrect Login Credentials and not receiving a password reset email



    Nevermind, it's working again.
