WordPress Integration FAQs

✍🏼 Terminology

  • WordPress APIs — An interface for any application to interact with a WordPress site by sending and receiving data. This can be used to publish and draft posts without actually visiting the wordpress site.

I’m unable to export blog articles to my WordPress site.

If you’re having issues, here are some things to check:

1. Change your User Role in WordPress

If you have the "Contributor" role, you can only connect Hypotenuse to your WordPress site, but not publish articles. You need to ask anyone with the Administrator role to change your role to Author or Editor to do so.

How to change your user role in WordPress:

  • Login to your WordPress backend.
  • Click Users and choose a different role.
  • Click the Update User button.

2. Change your permalink structure

If your permalink structure is "Plain" you will need to switch to another structure that allows you to publish articles.

To change your permalink structure:

  • Go to WordPress Settings.
  • Choose Permalink.
  • Click on any other Permalink structure aside from plain that you would like to use.
  • Click Save at the bottom of the page.

3. Remove plugins which block REST API access

Some plugins block API access to WordPress due to security concerns.

Please go through your different plugins to see if any of them have this function.

For example, WP REST API Controller plugin can disable REST API access.
