WordPress (legacy)

Version Legacy

This is the documentation for the legacy WordPress app.
Here is the documentation for the new WordPress app.

Getting Started with Wordpress

The Wordpress modules allow you to monitor, publish, update, delete, or search posts, pages, comments, media, users, and tags on your Wordpress site.

Prerequisites

  • Wordpress installed on your server
  • A Basic Authentication for JSON plugin installed in your Wordpress
  • Modified .htaccess or web.config file (optional)
  • Custom Fields for REST API plugin (optional, for working with custom fields)

In order to use Wordpress with Integromat, it is necessary to have the Wordpress content management system installed on your server or webhosting.
You can download Wordpress at wordpress.org/download/ and install by following the instructions on wordpress.org/support/article/how-to-install-wordpress.

The module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Integromat scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!

Connecting Wordpress to Integromat

To connect your Wordpress account to Integromat, the JSON Basic Auth plugin has to be installed in your Wordpress installation.

1. Visit github.com/WP-API/Basic-Auth and download the JSON Basic Authentication plugin (direct link).

2. Log in to your Wordpress administration and open Plugins.

If the connection is not established and an error is returned, you need to add the following code to your .htaccessfile to allow the HTTP authorization header:
<IfModule mod_setenvif>

SetEnvIf Authorization "(.*)" HTTP_AUTHORIZATION=$1

</IfModule>

If your Wordpress is on the Windows server (IIS), please contact your administrator in order to allow the HTTP authorization header.

Add the Self-signed Certificate When Using Secured HTTPS Connection

Self-signed certificate

Click the Extract button to open the upload dialog.

Upload the certificate to use the TLS with your self-signed certificate. Integromat does not retain or store any data (files, passwords) you provide. File and password are only used to extract the certificate.

For more details about certificates and keys please refer to the Certificates and Keys article.

Custom Fields for REST API plugin installation

1. Visit https://wordpress.org/plugins/rest-api-custom-fields/ and download the Custom Fields for REST API plugin (direct link).
