Access your site's data through an easy-to-use HTTP REST API (Version 1, deprecated).
Notice: This is the deprecated Version 1 of the WP REST API. It's no longer supported beyond security fixes. Please consider WP REST API v2 for your website, although there are considerations to be aware of. If you activate both v1 and v2 on your website, then v1 will take priority and v2 will be inaccessible.
WordPress is moving towards becoming a fully-fledged application framework, and we need new APIs. This project was born to create an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand and well-tested framework for creating these APIs, plus creating APIs for core.
This plugin provides an easy to use REST API, available via HTTP. Grab your site's data in simple JSON format, including users, posts, taxonomies and more. Retrieving or updating data is as simple as sending a HTTP request.
Want to get your site's posts? Simply send a
GET request to
Update user with ID 4? Send a
POST request to
/wp-json/users/4. Get all
posts with the search term "awesome"?
It's that easy.
WP API exposes a simple yet easy interface to WP Query, the posts API, post meta API, users API, revisions API and many more. Chances are, if you can do it with WordPress, WP API will let you do it.
Check out our documentation for information on what's available in the API and how to use it. We've also got documentation on extending the API with extra data for plugin and theme developers!
