WordPress out of the box doesn’t provide a feature to connect to external APIs and display the data on the frontend dynamically. But wait, we have a solution to overcome your problem.

We will see how data from an External API can be shown WordPress Frontend using shortcodes with the help of our CUSTOM API for WORDPRESS Plugin. Data is picked from an external third-party server and it is shown in an HTML table element using shortcodes dynamically. Without wasting time, let’s dive right into the usecase:
