API Tool and documentation

FortressDB isn’t just useful for forms, but for any custom WordPress development. We want developers to use our API to build awesome features for their websites. To enable this, we’ve created an API test tool, for both our REST and sockets APIs. The tool shows how to call the various methods, endpoints, etc. You can try it live on your own WordPress website. 

The API tool can be enabled directly in the FortressDB plugin.  There are 3 steps.

  1. Click on the Developers button from the FortressDB plugin.
  2. Check the “Enable API Tool” checkbox.
  3. The API Test Tool will now appear in the FortressDB plugin menu.
