WPRM version 1.2.9

optimized request saving process

Instead of saving the request options 4 times for newly created requests. Now, you only have to save the parameter values entries then the full request sections a one time.

New RESTful requests engine

Unirest is a set of lightweight HTTP libraries. Utility methods to call GET, POST, PUT, DELETE requests which we will add in future versions.

Connection header extra custom data

Now you can add new data to request’s header such as authentication key.


WPRM version 1.2.5

Added custom url connection:

Customized base connection url will enable the user to make flexible requests under the same connection. Lots of APIs use the last part of its base url to add the type of the connection. For example, Facebook graph where you can say graph.facebook.com/v2.3/{1} where 1 could be replaced with ‘me’, ‘page’, user_id, and other things.


Fixed storing request results in WP database:

The way of saving request results has been optimized and some options like ‘Display/Store results’ has been modified. Now you can save the results from dashboard without any need to use the shortcode.

WPRM version 1.2.1

[if] and [ifExist] helpers

[if item=val][/if]: checks one of the results keys against a possible value. If the condition returns true then the content of the condition will be displayed as part of the content. In the next screenshot, you see that check one of the results if it’s valid or not and display different output depending on that.

[ifExist item][/if]: checks if an item exists and not empty. if the item have any value the content of the condition will be displayed. In the following sceenshot, we use if exist to test if an image link exists because if not we don’t need to see the broken image icon so we don’t show it at all.

[section] helpers

section helpers is very useful with templates especially the repeatable data template. It’s a simple typography tool to organize your template. You can use sections as [section 1/2], [section 1/3] and [section 1/4]. each fraction refers to the part of the page/container that this section will take.

Ability to establish authorized requests with username and password

If you use web services that provides API access(which i think most of them), so you will find some of them require remote username and password authorization before you query any data. Now you can do these kind of requests with WPRM. Just go to RESTful Manager > connection, then set the checkbox ‘This Connection will be authorized with username and password.’ and fill your username and password.
