I'm getting emails and see on blogs that there is a problem with the Json Rest API in WP.
Here is what WPBeginner.com says to do to disable Json Rest API:
Basically they say most people don't need the Json Rest API on their website so they should just go ahead and disable it. And they recommend a plug-in just for that.
"Disabling JSON REST API in WordPress
First thing you need to do is install and activate the Disable REST API plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.
The plugin works out of the box and there are no settings for you to configure."
There was a answer in wpmudev.org about how to do this manually here:
So....now here are my questions:
1) Is this something I should do?
2) Since my coding skills are not great, should I use this plug-in?
3) Since we shouldn't load our sites heavy with plug-ins, can I disable the plug-in after it does it's thing? Or do you have to have the plug-in permanently activated for the coding to stay in website codes?
4) If I've already got wpmudev.org plug-ins on my sites and most of my clients' sites, do the various defender plug-ins already fix this?
I guess that's enough questions on this subject. I am looking forward to your responses as you've always got so many good ideas.
Please remember, not all of us (especially me) are whizzes at coding and other "stuff" so please make answers simple.
