I am currently attempting to make a simple GET call on an external API and then to populate the page with the response, no matter I search I cannot seem to find a clear or understandable answer as how to do this or if it is even possible.
I have found an answer, however I feel that I should expand on what I wanted as I feel that Mark Kaplun was right. What I wanted to be able to do was make an external API call to GET a response from my own backend service (dreamfactory in this case). The issue that arose, largely due to my unfamiliarity with WordPress, was that I could not find a way to send off an api call. What it transpired the issue was that I attempted to make the api call inside the page and not inside the "Functions.php" page that I should of done, calling a short-code inside the page editor to activate it.
