Note for Wordpress REST API

To make the REST API in your Wordpress instance work, please change the permalink structure to /%post%/ from the Wordpress admin panel.


To include Blog Posts from Wordpress - please create a post with category named blog and add posts to it.


To include Documentation from Wordpress - please create a page with category named documentation and add pages to it.

This **involves enabling categories for pages. To do this, add the following code to your theme's functions.php file:

function add_categories_to_pages() { register_taxonomy_for_object_type('category', 'page'); } add_action('init', 'add_categories_to_pages');

Please refer to wp-content/themes/twentytwentyfour/functions.php for an example of a theme that includes this code.

Language Filtering

To make the language filtering work, please add a tag with the language name to the post. For example, if you have a post in English, add the tag en to it, and if you have a post in German, add the tag de to it.
