In this video, we will implement custom routes for WordPress using TypeRocket's route feature. We can create custom routes using controllers and OOP to route landing pages to pull directly from your database with just a few lines of code. This tutorial is good for processing and transforming data on the fly within your theme outside of WordPress.
