Thanks for your insight. Yes a system which just uses the self hosted site is much better in all cases.

comment Varying the number of posts per page from the first one
@s_ha_dum Thanks for the pointer. I managed to fix it by setting the offset parameter, which I guess I have to calculate according to the page I am in. Answer below, from some initial tests seems to work.

Thanks for the pointer. Maybe it could be authenticated in some way to avoid direct scraping? Although as you are saying its not seriously protecting against anything. (Search engines scrape anyway to index your blog).

comment Wordpress REST endpoint with JSON for Mobile App integration
I don't know if I am incorrect, but both seem to be targeted for posting/managing blog posts rather than plain retrieving information. Am I missing something? For instance, in the XML-RPC version simple operations like wp.getPost() require a username/password. I just want to develop a small app which displays pretty much the same articles on the blog, but formatted properly for it.

comment Removing the […] from the excerpt returned by get_the_excerpt() only in some places
Yes thats understood. So one would need to get the excerpt, and if its empty use the content and truncate it to the maximum.

comment Removing the […] from the excerpt returned by get_the_excerpt() only in some places
I have no problem with caveat 2 because I built the theme myself. I do have a problem with caveat 1 however, because my bloggers often don't put the 'more' separator in their post, which is often the case when the [...] appears. Maybe I can use the post's content in some way and simulate what get_the_excerpt() is doing, i.e. if $post->post_excerpt is an empty string I use the full content and truncate it myself to the maximum excerpt length? Where can I find all the attributes of the $post variable? And how can I get the maximum excerpt length parameter from wordpress with PHP?
