Includes the Testimonials API
The testimonials API opens your public testimonials to the WordPress REST API. What that means, if enabled, other websites or apps can query testimonials from your website and display them on theirs. This is no different than what the REST API already provides with pages and blog post.
An example use for this would be a multisite network or external mirrored websites where you have a main website with the testimonials and all the child sites need to also display the same testimonials. Before hand, you would need to export and import your testimonials into each child/external site and routinely update each one. With the API, the child sites always display the current set from the main website.
