Connecting to your store

Download the free FooEvents Check-ins app:

The FooEvents Check-ins app connects to your store via the REST API (primary) or WordPress XML-RPC (secondary). REST API is the preferred connection method as it is generally more stable and secure than XML-RPC.

You can confirm if the REST API is accessible on your website by entering the following address in your web browser:

You should see a screen that displays code which starts with {"namespace":"fooevents\/v1","routes": as opposed to an error page such as 404 file not found which indicates that something is wrong with your server configuration or the REST API is blocked.

Using the App #

  1. Download the FooEvents Check-ins app
  2. Enter the following details on the login screen:
    1. URL – Your website URL (e.g.
    2. Username & Password – The access details of one of your WordPress users (e.g. ‘admin’)

Please Note: By default, access to the FooEvents Check-ins app is restricted to users with the role of “Administrator”. If you require additional users to have access to the FooEvents Check-ins app but don’t necessarily want to give them Administrator access to your site, please read this article: User Roles, Capabilities and Permissions

In certain server environments, you might not be able to use the REST API and your web host or a CAPTCHA or security plugin such as Wordfence or iThemes Security might be blocking or restricting access to XML-RPC for security reasons.
