I am using a plugin that adds multiple custom post types all of which have their own meta-data. I am able to expose the custom post type to WordPress's API but the metadata collected with those post is not.
For example "Team Members" is a post type and it is declared in the
team.php file. I was able to add it to the WP API via
'show_in_rest' => true, there is also a
team-metaboxes.php which I tried to add the same attribute to by am not seeing it in the API JSON.
I am seeing the team metadata in the
wp_postmeta table in the DB but I am having a hard time accessing it via the API.
What are my options. As of now I am using:
But am not sure how to get the metadata for the team-post content types.
Per a recommendation below I have added the following snippet to my themes functions.php and still no meta data in the JSON returned from the API:
register_meta('post', 'fb_si', [ 'object_subtype' => 'team-post', 'show_in_rest' => true ]);
The fact that the metaboxes are added via a plugin would that matter?
