Support » Developing with WordPress » WordPress API – CORS Error

  • Resolved lucasctd


    Hi there,

    I am trying to request data from WordPress themes and plugins api, but I am always getting CORS errors as response :v

    I used the query below on postman and it worked, but on my website it does not work:[search]=Twenty Twenty-One&request[fields][downloadlink]=1&request[fields][downloaded]=0&request[fields][screenshot_url]=1&request[fields][rating]=0&request[fields][num_ratings]=0&request[fields][homepage]=0&request[fields][description]=0&request[fields][author]=0

    I am making the request on the website below:

    Link to the API:

    If you go to your browser’s console, you’ll see the error there.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks in Advance.

    I have figured out what’s going on. Jesus, it’s all about a forward slash.

    If you use:
    it will return CORS errors,

    but if you do:

    (see the forward slash after number 1)

    It works…

    Good catch! FWIW, all WP permalinks like to have trailing slashes. While it often accommodates requests without it, as you’ve found, there are cases where it is required. Even when a link without the trailing slash works as expected, you’ll find WP will do a 302 redirect just to add the slash. Better to include it in the first place 🙂

    @bcworkz do you know if there is any limit to access api? I don’t see it anywhere, but I am pretty sure it’s not unlimited xD

    Sorry I don’t know. My guess is it is not limited, but if it’s abused to the point someone notices server issues, there will be a manual intervention. As in DDoS level abuse. I doubt anyone using it respectfully would ever have an issue.
