Wordpress Connector Setup

⚠️ Read me ⚠️

Make sure this is the right Wordpress connector you are after. This connector is used for self-hosted Wordpress sites. For Wordpress hosted sites view the Wordpress guide here.


In order to allow Cyclr to connect to your WordPress site’s API, you must install the WordPress REST API – OAuth 1.0a Server. This gives your site the ability to securely authenticate API use.

Register Cyclr as an application

Once you have installed the plugin, open WordPress and go to:

Users > Applications > Add New

The values needed to add your app are:

  • Name: Cyclr
  • Description: this is a free text area
  • Callback: https://{{Your Cyclr service domain e.g. app-h.cyclr.com}}/connector/callback

Your setup should look something like this:

When you add your Consumer, you will be presented with your Client Key and Client Secret.

(Yours will be different to the screenshot).

Authenticate WordPress in Cyclr

With the above correctly setup, install the WordPress connector in Cyclr and provide the Client Key and Client Secret along with your website’s URL.

Click the Next button and you will be prompted to sign into WordPress. Do this and then authorize Cyclr and you can now begin to use your WordPress site’s API.
