Cannot retrieve mobiledoc format via content API


I’m having trouble getting access to the mobiledoc format for posts and pages using the content-api.

If I send a get request, to posts or a single post by slug, I get the format shown without the mobile doc.

I can get both html and plaintext fine.

Am I trying to use the following formats field as described in the content API documentation.
Conent API Documentation

My site is is running ghost 2.18.1.

I get this problem using both the Javascript API Client and issuing posts in postman. I use “formats” as shown below.

const page = await ghostAPI(){
        include: 'tags,authors',
        formats: 'mobiledoc'

Please let me know if I’m doing something wrong or something is broken.

Thanks in advance!




The Content API v2 does not return mobiledoc currently.



@Kate think our docs are a bit misleading in this case :sweat_smile: Will change it now.

@jacobgoodwin0 you would need to use Admin API in case you want to operate on mobiledoc

@jacobgoodwin0 what is your use-case for needing the mobiledoc content?



@Kevin, I don’t have a critical use case. I’m generating a static site template with Nuxt and just saw the feature in the documentation and wanted to play around with it. So the HTML will work fine for this case.
