AppPresser has a suite of WordPress plugins and theme that you install on your WordPress site.

These plugins connect your WordPress site to the app, and allow for special features.  You must install and configure these plugins on your WordPress site before building your app on myapppresser.com.

Getting Started

The process of developing an app with AppPresser goes like this:

  1. Install AppPresser plugins and theme
  2. Configure settings
  3. Build your app on myapppresser.com

1. Install AppPresser core plugin and theme

First, install and activate the  AppPresser core plugin. Login to your WordPress website, go to Plugins->Add New, and search for "AppPresser." Install and activate.

Next, download the AP3 Ion Theme from your purchase receipt email, or from your  account page.

Go to Appearance->Themes->Add New->Upload, and upload the theme .zip file.  Please note that the AppPresser Theme cannot be uploaded as a plugin.

Do not activate the theme, it should stay inactive. The AppPresser core plugin handles switching this to the active theme for the mobile app using the app-only theme setting.

2. Configure Plugin Settings

Next, visit the AppPresser settings menu to configure your app.

Here you need to add your Site Slug and App ID. You can find those by logging into myapppresser.com and visiting Your App => General.

Add those settings and save.

3. Configuring extensions

Next, you'll install and activate any extensions. For each extension, download the .zip file from your   account page. Login to your WordPress website, go to Plugins->Add New->Upload, and upload the .zip file (do not unzip the file before uploading).

Activate each extension after uploading.

Each extension is used differently, please consult the  documentation for your extension for usage information.

License keys

Apply your license key in the appropriate key location. If you see a green bar that says "Activated", you have successfully applied a valid key. Otherwise, it'll let you know that your license key is invalid or provide a link to acquire one.

4. (Maybe) Install the WP-API

You will need the WP-API active on your site. If you are using WordPress 4.7+, you do not need to do anything.

If you are using WordPress 4.6 or lower, you need to install the WP-API plugin.

In your WordPress site, go to Plugins => Add New, and search for Rest API. Install and activate this plugin.

Make sure it says WordPress REST API (Version 2)

If the WP-API is setup correctly, you should be able to visit http://yoursite.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts and see post data in JSON format there.
