I'm trying to add featured images to my API but it's a different type of post.


I have been using WP REST API Controller but it doesn't show image option.

I also try to use "Better REST API Featured Images" but no luck.

It's starting to annoy me.

from the support forum of that plugin:

Your cpt may not be registered correctly. Try adding this to your functions.php (change "event" to your post type slug):

add_filter( 'register_post_type_args', function( $args, $post_type ) {

if( 'event' === $post_type ) {
    $args['show_in_rest'] = true;

return $args;

}, 10, 2 );

or make sure that you have show in rest active for your cpt when you actually registered it.
