I am specifically looking to get the question/answer body back. Is it possible?
I am looking through the API documentation and I'm confused about how to make a call with filters.
Sample call I'm trying:
Stack Exchange network consists of 181 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.Visit Stack Exchange
Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It only takes a minute to sign up.Sign up to join this community
The most straightforward way to get the body is to use the named
withbody filter, which you pass in as the value of the
filter parameter (example). This will give you all of the default fields, along with the post body.
You can also create a custom filter that passes back
answer.body where appropriate along with your select choice of other fields, and use the ID of that filter instead (example).
