  1. Noob question: Does a developer need a CMS? I didn’t think about one, but then I realized that managing a hundred posts, which each post having on average 5 iages, becomes quite painful.

  2. Hi Ovie, I’ve followed your tutorial however when the user clicks on an individual post the SinglePost component renders in an endless loop. Any ideas? Cheers.

  3. Anyone stumbling upon this article and getting infinite loops in the Network tab you need to change the useEffect slightly:

    export default function useSinglePost(slug) {
    const [post, setPost] = useState(null);
    const [isLoading, setLoading] = useState(true);
    useEffect(() => {
    getSinglePost(slug)
    .then(result => {
    setPost(result[0].fields);
    setLoading(false);
    });
    }, [slug]);
    return [post, isLoading];
    }
