can easily link to it using the Web Clip.
You can also add an extra introductory paragraph, so that
your readers will have context as to how the article relates
to them.
To add a Web Clip, go to your Add Content page and select
Web Clip.

Getting NPR Content from the API
Using the NPI API: Getting Started
What is the NPR API?
The NPR API (Application Programming Interface)
contains posts published for NPR.org and NPR
programs, as well as posts published by other stations
using Core Publisher. You can search the API for posts
that you can publish to your site.
Why should I use the NPR API?
The main benefit of using the API is the ability to
publish posts from other NPR sources to your site for
your web visitors to read without having to leave your
site.
14
Using the NPI API: Getting Started
How do I get content from the API?
There are two ways to get content from the NPR API:
1)“Top Posts” from NPR are automatically published
into a block on your homepage called “Latest from
NPR”
2)You can grab the URL of posts you see on NPR.org
and post them to your site.
Where does my content from the API live on my site?
Besides the “Latest from NPR” block, you can tag any
content from the API with a Category or tag to control
it’s placement on your site.
15
