Hi, I wrote a 6 part series on how I built new web pages for our condominium using React, Gatsby, Chakra UI, Contentful (headless CMS) and Auth0. In part 5 and 6 I describe how I built a user admin dashboard for the web site with Auth0s Management API and Gatsby Functions. Hope you like it! :-)

Just to be clear, are importing original articles written before this month fair game? Does "between the first and last day of the month" only refer to the article's release date on this site?

Collapse

Gracie Gregory (she/her)

Yep! For the moment, that's totally fair game as we're getting this community up and running. We might change this to only "articles published during a given month" once we're more established 😉

Yes! For now, you can import original articles originally written before January 2021 :)

What does "Share an original article here" mean? Do I have to write a post on Codenewbie or just post a link to my post from other websites here?

Collapse

Gracie Gregory (she/her)

Hi! Thanks for asking. The post should be cross-posted in full here to the CodeNewbie Community, written by you, with the original location of posting disclosed via hyperlink. So a post just containing a link would not be elligible.

...however, we require a minimum word count of 500.

Does code snippets count?

Good question! We ask that code snippets are included as a supplement rather than counting towards the total length of your post.
