    Hey, you need to add the editor property in your payload 2.0 config.



    Check out the migration guide here:

    https://github.com/payloadcms/payload/releases/tag/v2.0.0

    As well as


    https://payloadcms.com/docs/rich-text/overview


    How did you create the project? create-payload-app should automatically fill in the editor property for new projects

    npx create-payload-app



    thanks

    when did you use the command? Maybe you ran it before the 2.0 release, and then installed payload post-2.0.



    If you haven't done any work yet, re-running the command should be the easiest solution for you

    This is quite misleading to suggest the use of

    npx create-payload-app project-name

    😦



    The

    'installer"

    should create all this for us,

    shouldn't it?

    🤔

    I've just run npx create-payload-app and receiving the same error:


    05:39:29] ERROR (payload): There were 1 errors validating your Payload config
    [05:39:29] ERROR (payload): 1: "editor" is required


    The docs recommend npx create-payload-app


    https://payloadcms.com/docs/getting-started/installation


    How do I add an editor?

    @taun2160 @jjaimealeman it should do it automatically for you - I'm not sure why it doesn't.



    This might help:



    npx create-payload-app@latest project-name
