    Hello,

    Here is the cURL function I am trying to ruin in the wordpress options page for the plugin. It works on the server but not inside of the options page. I have read I need to to 2 cURL functions. One to get admin for wordpress and the other to run the cURL function.

    Please instruct me how to do this...

    function get_data($url) {
      $ch = curl_init();
      $timeout = 5;
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
      global $data;
      $data = curl_exec($ch);
      curl_close($ch);
      $info = json_decode($data,true); //decoding the json data
      global $report;
      $report = $info;
    
    }
