In this lesson, we will explore the WordPress API and documentation and pose a challenge to extend the API in some way with some suggestions.

Instructor: [0:00] There are lots of great places to find documentation for WordPress. This is developer.WordPress.com, and in here we can see the reference. In my last video I used the get_comments() function. In the documentation, I can see it needs an array of arguments.

[0:19] In which case, we sent the post_id. Then we've got a hive, we might construct it. Drilling down, we've got some user contributions, different examples, and different things you might want to do.

[0:29] My challenge to you then is, can you use this documentation and maybe add the author details, or add some feature to your REST API that might be useful or fun?
