plugins – WordPress REST API: Query media files attached to a custom post type
I want to attach an React native app to a WordPress E-Learning Portal (leveraging the LearnPress-Plugin) to authenticate enrolled students and download audio assets of the course to the app.
The Plugin uses custom post types for courses & lessons.
So after authentication I use the Media Query to retreive the audio assets via Rest Media API
I want to retreive all media assets associated with a certain lesson Id, so I use the
parent argument in the query:
I get empty results.
If I attach the media files to a regular wordpress post, the query works fine
So I guess the problem is that the lessons are custom post types?!
Do you have any solution or any workaround for this?
I could attach all needed media files to a regular post and query for them, but then I need to hardcode the post-id into the app, which I would like to avoid.
Thank you in advance!
