  • and this is my code for if statment if Get Started clicked if ( $payload == 'firsthand' ) { $sender_id = ''.$sender_id.''; $data_array = array( "title"=>$sender_id ) ; callAPI('POST','http://alenke.test/wp-json/wp/v2/inquiry',json_encode($data_array)); – Mohammed Alama Jun 28 at 9:46

Please write function for get post by title

function get_page_by_post_title( $page_title, $output = OBJECT, $post_type = 'page' ) {
    global $wpdb;

    $sql = $wpdb->prepare(
        SELECT ID
        FROM $wpdb->posts
        WHERE post_title = %s
        AND post_type = %s 

    $page = $wpdb->get_var( $sql );

    if ( $page ) {
        return get_post( $page, $output );

And this is your inquire_id function like,

function get_inquiry_id($data){ 
    $return = []; 
    $return = get_page_by_post_title($title, OBJECT, 'inquiry'); 
    $return = $return->ID; 
    return new WP_REST_Response($return, 200); 
  • my problem is not getting the ID of inquery my function return the id But it is when i make API Call with POST method it execute twice like that 2115706638540570 — Draft 2115706638540570 — Draft – Mohammed Alama Jun 28 at 11:46
