Rest Routes


Have you ever thought in the possibility of having a way to extend the WP REST API without touching a single line of PHP? That can be easily done with Rest Routes! It lets you build fresh new endpoints with custom filters and output. All from inside of the WP dashboard side.

A couple of available filters:

  • Default and Custom Post Types
  • Default Taxonomies
  • Post Status
  • Post Parent
  • Post ID
  • Post Author
  • Ordering
  • Limit & Offset


  • List of custom endpoints
  • Choosing filters to a custom endpoint
  • Defining the output of the custom endpoint
  • The JSON output of your custom endpoint


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/rest-routes directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Good idea

Love this plugin. Could need some enhancements, but is very easy to use.
