Welcome to the WordPress.com REST API. Below, you’ll find a full listing of all the available endpoints. As we add more endpoints, they will be automatically documented here and available through the Developer Console.
For more information about a particular endpoint, click on its name under the Resource header. You’ll be taken to the endpoint’s documentation page, which includes what query parameters the endpoint will accept, what the JSON object’s parameters will be in the response, and an example query/response.
This documentation is for our most recent version of the REST API, version 1.1. Documentation is still available for version 1 of the REST API.
If you’re looking for the WordPress REST API that shipped as part of WordPress core in version 4.7, see its documentation. Note that this API is also enabled on WordPress.com, but the URL structure on WordPress.com is slightly different than for self-hosted sites. See this post for more details.
