How to use NEWS API with JSON in Wordpress

Hello there,


Name is Chris


I operate a political opinion blog and want to create a dedicated News Page using  to attract more readers to my posts.  Newsapi uses JSON to import to the site I believe, however I am not a programmer and this is one area my efforts have failed to be able to get this even started. I am self taught on wordpress, but this has me stumped.


I am using a JSON importer plugin and I don't understand how to use it. It mentions their are templates I must use as the landing page for the API news feed and frankly I am a bit lost.


My vision, have a news page with categories of news articles with images flowing into and updated automatically. indicates this is possible and easy lol.


Any help be appreciated. A small monetary appreciation would be warranted if I can get this completed.

The templates are developer short-codes to render a desired output...

The JSON Content Importer uses JCI and Twig template short-codes that you can use...

Please check the above URL to start working on it...


Hope this helps

Hi Chris,


I'm trying to do about the same this as you are, I think.  I've tried to document how I set up my site using the JSON Content Importer (it's not intuitive) here:

I'd be happy to compare notes with you and see what you've done.
