  • Hello,

    It could be related to url parameters in my opinion. In your example the following urls:


    should be:


    so the first query parameter is always preceded with ? sign, not an ampersand. Although, /wp-json/wp/v2/posts should always return posts, if there are any. Try to turn off all the plugins and enable debug mode in your wp-config to see if there are any errors.
    Also, make sure that you don’t mix posts&pages – they’re different in WordPress and you might need to use /wp-json/wp/v2/pages for your purposes.

    No, I made error but in question. Not in URL.

    Today I noticed another strange behavior:

    http://site.domain/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?per_page=3 – works fine

    or http://site.domain/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?per_page=4
    does not work!

    And there’s no helpful info in wp-content/debug.log

    In your latest message you mentioned this url twice:
    both as working and not-working url. How it can be possible?
    Also, can you make sure that you have the following code in your wp-config.php

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
     define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
     define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );
     define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true );
     define( 'JETPACK_DEV_DEBUG', false );

    so it will save any errors in debug.log

    Oh! I mean http://site.domain/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?per_page=4
    Adding only one post – and I got a empty page.

    Thanks for debug config. I will check it.

    Something wrong with single post!

    This URLs works:


    This one doesn’t:

    And this works again:

    Hi @fromgate,

    I seem to be having the same problem as you, where certain posts/pages are inaccessible via the API. I am getting a 200 status code for my requests, but completely blank content in the response (not even an empty JSON array). Did you make any progress with this problem, or are you still as stuck as I am?

    It looks like issue is solved now (after updating to WP 4.8).
