WP REST API – Pure Taxonomies

Description

Now you have no need to make additional requests to get taxonomy info (term_id, name, slug, term_group, term_taxonomy_id, taxonomy, description, parent, count, filter) from their id that is available in the default json response.

Now all available taxonomy data is available in ‘pure_taxonomies’ field from your json response. It works for all custom added taxonomies, and for custom post types.

For example in ‘wp-json/wp/v2/posts’ you can find default fields ‘categories’, ‘tags’ and name of custom added taxonomies that contain only its id. With this plugin you can also find new ‘pure_taxonomies’ field that include all available ‘categories’, ‘tags’ and custom taxonomies data.

Before:
{

categories: [
3
],
tags: [
2
],
custom_taxonomy_name: [
1
]

}

After:
{

pure_taxonomies: {
categories: [
{
term_id: 3,
name: “First category”,
slug: “first-category”,
term_group: 0,
term_taxonomy_id: 3,
taxonomy: “category”,
description: “”,
parent: 0,
count: 3,
filter: “raw”,
cat_ID: 3,
category_count: 3,
category_description: “”,
cat_name: “First category”,
category_nicename: “first-category”,
category_parent: 0
}
],
tags: [
{
term_id: 2,
name: “First tag”,
slug: “first-tag”,
term_group: 0,
term_taxonomy_id: 2,
taxonomy: “post_tag”,
description: “”,
parent: 0,
count: 2,
filter: “raw”
}
],
custom_taxonomy_name: [
{
term_id: 1,
name: “Custom Taxonomy Name”,
slug: “custom-taxonomy-name”,
term_group: 0,
term_taxonomy_id: 1,
taxonomy: “custom_taxonomy_name”,
description: “”,
parent: 0,
count: 1,
filter: “raw”
}
]
}

}
