Extra configuration

Please, make sure that the following URL patterns are not intercepted by any other plugin, CDN, or security policy:

  • /wp-json/custom-listing-app/
  • /api/
  • /wp/v2/

For instance, suppose you have installed WP-Rocket so, in order to exclude caching those URLs, follow the next steps:

  • Go to WP-Rocket -> Advanced Rules
  • In the text area “Never Cache URL(s)” add the following entries one per line: /api/(.*), /wp-json/(.*) and /wp/v2/(.*)
  • Click on “Save changes” and click on “Clear Cache” button.

In addition to that, since images are going to be displayed on the application, please make sure the access to images on /wp-content/uploads/ (default path, it may be different depending on where you put your images) is public.
