Let’s suppose you have laravel e-commerce application that need blog and we know that there is no other CMS that can beat WordPress. You also had a blog that contains the article that describes your products.

'https://your-wordpress-site.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts' with the actual URL of your WordPress site's API endpoint.

Test Your Application:
