Lost preview of my blog posts

Hello,

I am attempting to reorganize my posts to be in year/month/ folders instead of the single post folders. I am able to create the posts and see them on my site but I can no longer see them in the cms. Any ideas on what I can look at next?

Here is my config file.

collections:
  - name: "news"
    label: "News"
    label_singular: "Article"
    folder: "content/news"
    create: true
    slug: "{{year}}/{{month}}/{{slug}}"
    fields:
      - {label: "Template Key", name: "templateKey", widget: "hidden", default: "news-post"}

Snapshot of my folder structure.

Have a look here:

I appreciate the info. I was able to get my posts back but now I have lost my images…

They are stored relatively like there supposed to according to the docs.

And my config file matches like it is supposed to.

collections:
  - name: "news"
    label: "News"
    label_singular: "Article"
    folder: "content/news"
    create: true
    slug: "{{slug}}"
    path: "{{year}}/{{month}}/{{slug}}/post"
    media_folder: ''
    public_folder: ''

My global folders are correct as well.

media_folder: static/img
public_folder: /img

And the image file name shows in Graphql but when I list it there is nothing there

Am I missing something here?

Hi @byebyers, where would you like to save your photos?
You can drop the collection level media folders, that is use:

collections:
  - name: "news"
    label: "News"
    label_singular: "Article"
    folder: "content/news"
    create: true
    slug: "{{slug}}"
    path: "{{year}}/{{month}}/{{slug}}/post"

To keep the old behavior

Hey @erez! Thanks for the tip but that did not work for me. I realize am turning this into 2 topics so I posted another question specific to my image issue.

Folder Collections Media and Public Folder not working as intended

As for my original issue, I do see my posts again in the CMS by adding path to my config file.

collections:
  - name: "news"
    label: "News"
    label_singular: "Article"
    folder: "content/news"
    create: true
    slug: "{{slug}}"
    path: "{{year}}/{{month}}/{{slug}}"
