As we saw in Create and Explore a Single WordPress Post Through Gutenberg and the REST API, there is a lot of data available to you. This data might not be configured exactly how you'd like it. For instance, maybe you want comments to load with the initial call to
/posts/#ID without having to make additional calls for Author and Comments.
In this lesson, you'll see how to extend a behavior by adding an action in the
functions.php file that lives in
/wp-content/themes/twentytwenty. We will use
register_rest_field to add Comments to the request for a post.
