May 2020 – Craig West
What is the WP REST API and how can I use it to make forms and pages that don’t need to do be reloaded?

During this talk, we will look at what the WP REST API is, how to modify existing ‘endpoint’s as well as creating our own custom endpoints.

We will also make a small WP REST API site that carries out GET and POST requests for forms and pages as well as use the WP-Nonce security mechanism.

We are not alone….

In all the nonesense around COVID-19, it is reassuring to know that we a not alone. While Brighton may have been slow to WordUp Online, the rest of the community has been beavering away, as ever. Check out these links if you need a WordUp fix:

We are back in action, so keep watching the WordUp meetup group.

Hello 2020!

Same WordUp, under new management.

This year we say thank you to Tom Ferry and Tom Chute who have been organising the WordUp’s in Brighton since 2018. Welcome to Jon Morgan-Jones, who will coordinating things this year (and anyone else who wants to volunteer…).

It’ll be on the same day each month (Last Monday of the month), same venue and at the same time. We may change the format for some of the events, but we’ll keep you posted and hope that you’ll feed back with what you’d like to see and feedback on what we’re doing.

This is very much an Open Source and community based meetup, so Jon is going to need help with:

  • Organising events
  • Finding speakers for the events
  • Suggestions for events, both in terms of content and format
