Hey Everyone!

Working on a filter for my blog and for statefulness reasons it’d be helpful to return entirety of the article object while filtering by category (including images).

Articles and Categories are set up as collection types and categories has a one to many relationship with articles.

I’m currently passing the shallow version of articles by hitting /api/categories/?populate=* but wondering why this /api/categories?populate[articles][populate]=* won’t return everything including images? Is there a step im missing in coordinating this?

I’ve also updated my controllers to return populate by default but had no success there either.

Any thoughts would be super helpful!
