I'm developing an application that needs to connect to the API of my Wordpress site hosted by Wordpress.com.
I need to create custom posts and modify user emails.
I've found two ways of using the Wordpress API:
with basic authentication => http://mywebsite/wp-json/wp/v2 ;
by creating a wordpress application and using Oauth => https://public-api.wordpress.com/rest/v1.1/sites/mywebsite (doc: https://developer.wordpress.com/docs/)
With the first method, I wasn't able to add custom fields to my post, and with the second, I wasn't able to update the email of a user.
Could someone please explain the difference between the two and their usefulness?
