Can I fetch content from a custom WP Plugin?

I hope this is an appropriate question. I’m really interested in using Frontity but I’m unsure if it will do what I need it to.

I’ve got a WP website which is for a conference. Therefore, they have some custom plugins for creating Presentation items, Speaker items, Schedule items, and so on.

It quite simple. They’ve set it up to appear like a post or something, with some additional fields—like a head-shot of the Speaker, the summary of the presentation, and so on.

I’m wondering, are these automatically added in “wp-json” or would I have to do some custom programming to add those there?

Does Frontity only get content from “Posts?” Is my question even possible?

Thank you all so, so much for your time. You’re saving my life, haha.

Hi @Arepo

Yes, Frontity will work with WordPress custom post types (CPTs), so long as they’re added to the REST API.

See our docs here for info about configuring Frontity to work with CPTs.

If the CPTs are not already added to the REST API by the plugin developer you can add a bit of code either in the active theme’s functions.php file, or in a custom plugin. See here for more info on this.

Hope this helps.
