I've just installed Wordpress 4.7. One of the mentions in the announcement is that it features a REST API.
My understanding is:
- The Wordpress REST API plugin is not needed anymore, because supposely it has already been merged with core in Wordpress 4.7.
- The Wordpress REST API is enabled by default
However, I notice that in a vanilla Wordpress 4.7 install, none of the endpoints seems to work (for example
How can I tell if the new REST API is really activated? Can the REST API be enabled or disabled with the vanilla Wordpress UI, or should I install a third party plugin to do so?
