    @kasper, Yes. Except the error 405 "method not allowed". Thanks a lot.

    Awesome, glad to hear! Like I mentioned earlier, whenever you get a 405 it's because you're trying to ping an endpoint with a method is doesn't support.

    Also, when referencing IDs, you shouldn't do it like this :26 – the colon seen in the docs (:id) just means that it's a variable, you shouldn't actually include it. Postman supports these kinds of variables, so if you do :id in a URL (like in the collection I made), you should be able to see an id field in the "URL Params" section that you can then fill out.

    @kasper, Everything now works perfectly. I can now create new comment for existing discussion using postman client. Thanks for your help.

    After many hours, I finally got this to work, but I can only perform GET operations. How do I do POST? For example, if I have the following code adapted from georgegijo:

    $frequest = "?username=$username&email=$email&timestamp=$dtimestamp&token=$Token"; $curl_handle=curl_init(); curl_setopt($curl_handle,CURLOPT_URL,'http://mysite.com/vanilla-master/api/discussions/2'.$frequest); curl_setopt($curl_handle, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($curl_handle, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, 1); $buffer = curl_exec($curl_handle); curl_close($curl_handle); if (empty($buffer)){ print "Nothing returned from url.<p>"; } else{ print $buffer; }

    How do I turn that into a POST to add a discussion, for instance?

    @lkj897‌ Welcome to the community!

    When I was working with the API for a client, I created a PHP script ran inside the Vanilla framework for testing. I set the expiration date to 24 hours so I would only have to do this once a day.

    $Timestamp = time();
    $Data = array(
      'username'  => 'johndoe',
      'email'     => 'example@mail.com',
      'timestamp' => time()
    );
    
    $Token = APIAuth::generateSignature($Data);
    
    decho($Timestamp, 'Timestamp: ');
    decho($Token, 'Token: ');
