WordPress Self-Hosted Connector

Version 8

 

Intro

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system used for website management and blogging. Use Domo's WordPress Self-Hosted connector to retrieve data from WordPress.org, such as lists of posts, pages, users, comments, and so on. To learn more about the WordPress API, visit their page (https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_APIs).   

You connect to your WordPress.org account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the WordPress Self-Hosted connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your WordPress.org account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The host URL of your WordPress site

  • The username and password for your WordPress site

Connecting to Your WordPress.org Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the WordPress Self-Hosted Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your WordPress.org account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
