Blog settings and posts are fetched with GraphQL queries. The flexibility of GraphQL gives you the possibility to implement any search functionality you need. Every Property added to the fields will be available to add to the installed queries.

Example: Get blog posts GraphQL query

You can fetch blog settings with:

{%- graphql g = 'modules/dashboard_blog/get_blog_instance' -%}

You can fetch all post details with:

{%- graphql g = 'modules/dashboard_blog/get_blog_posts' -%}

modules/dashboard_blog/get_blog_posts.graphql
