How to create a excerpt for a wordpress post?

Is this done via Http-Request?

Thank you.

Hi @ManyQuestions
yes to create/update the excerpt of a post you need to query the WP APIs with the HTTP Request node.

You need to use the endpoint:
POST /wp/v2/posts/<id>
passing the excerpt value

Let me know if this helps and you need more support


Thx for the reply. The credentials and the Post ID are ok, but for some reason, I am still getting the Error: ERROR: Authorization failed - please check your credentials

{“code”:“rest_authentication_error”,“message”:“Sorry, you do not have permission to make REST API requests.”,“data”:{“status”:401}}

Hi @ManyQuestions
are you using an “Application Password” for your credentials?
