Kia ora

I'm very interested in a Simple-Press purchase. However, a crucial feature for our usage would be creating forums via the API - I've browsed through the documentation, but it's a little on the scant side (lol!) and doesn't seem to mention a specific hook that would permit this. Please could you very kindly point me in the right direction to have a read-up about this?

Thanks so much

Jamie 🙂

We don't have a formal API for creating and managing forums the way you've described.  There are things you can do and hook into after a forum is created but things like creating the forum, deleting it or locking them - those aren't really part of any api or hook.

Looking at the current api documentation, seems liek you can now, but the documentation is missing the description and arguments.

Hi Josiah!

We are a new team behind Simple:Press and we are trying our best to get up to speed on everything. I have not had time to look at the API-part of Simple:Press yet. But I had a quick look at it.

From what I understand you are looking for an api that allows you to post or insert data. The functions listed are the ones fired during Simple:Press execution in WordPress. The name API might be a bit missleading.

The functions listed can be used to intercept and act on different functions in WP but not to trigger creation of forum group, topics or replies.

Best regards,

Joakim Simple:Press
