Connect your WordPress site with ADMIN

  1. Install and activate the Fancy Product Designer REST API plugin
  2. After activation go to Fancy Product Designer Settings > General tab > REST API sub menu in your WP backend
  3. Enter an "Authentication Password". For safety reason do not use the same password that you have chosen to log into your WP backend.
  4. Go to https://admin.fancyproductdesigner.com and log into your account or create an new account.
  5. After login you will see a "Add your website" panel.
  6. Enter the necessary information. In the Authentication tab you enter the same password that you previously choose in the WP backend.
  7. You are done!


Edit htaccess (Optional)

In some cases you need to edit the .htaccess file in the root directory of your WordPress site. Please try to connect your WordPress site first without editing the .htaccess. If you get any authentication errors when clicking the "Test Communication" button in the ADMIN, proceed with the .htaccess modification.


You have to add this line of code code in the .htaccess of your WordPress root directory.

RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

after:

RewriteEngine On


There are several ways to edit this file. Here is a short tutorial thats explaining how you can edit it if you do not know.


The full htaccess looks now like this:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress
