I am looking at the WordPress JSON API Plugin. What I'd like to do is query all posts in a custom taxonomy term called wales. I have been able to get all posts in the post type listings using this url -


But how would I retrieve all posts in a custom taxonomy term?

  • Before someone else gets here, I should remind you that plugin specific questions aren't great round these parts... Also, WP 4.4 includes a JSON API in core now. v2.wp-api.org If you can't find something you need you can create custom endpoints - v2.wp-api.org/extending/adding

  • On a side note, WPEngine was hacked today so be sure to change all your passwords - wpengine.com/support/infosec

    Check out scd.blaze.wpengine.com/wp-json to see where your endpoints start.
