Howdy! Here are all the news concerning Gato GraphQL up to mid-May 2024.

  updateCustomPost(input: {
    id: 1616
    customPostType: "my-portfolio"
    title: "Updated title"
    contentAs: { html: "Updated content" }
  }) {
    errors {
      ...on ErrorPayload {
    customPost {
      ...on CustomPost {

Check out the release notes in GitHub.

New PRO integration with Polylang!

Gato GraphQL PRO now has an integration with the Polylang plugin, with support for both Polylang and Polylang PRO.

With the new Polylang extension, you can use Google Translate to automatically translate a post to all languages defined in the Polylang settings, and store those translations in the corresponding posts.

It gets better! Thanks to automation, newly-published posts can be automatically translated to all the languages, and even have their tags, categories, and featured image synchronized across languages.

Check out video Automatically translating posts for Polylang to experience how powerful this feature is, and how much easier working with Polylang becomes:
