I've been working with the Wordpress REST API Authentication plugin (from miniOrange) as part of an article I'm writing. I want to demonstrate how to integrate a third-party application with a WP site through the API.
The miniOrange plugin is actually great for API calls that only want to read, but if I want to post pages or other information to the site, it is necessary to authenticate as a user with privilege.
Unfortunately, this plugin doesn't appear to even offer a trial mode for doing this. In order to use authentication modes that would allow writing, the plugin must be upgraded to the tune of somewhere between $150 to $400 (various sources of intel on this differ).
- Is this the ONLY suitable authentication plugin?
- Is there no other way to utilize the API for write operations without a similar plugin?
