Wordpress account “authentication failed: Error parsing response” error

Hi Zapier community!


I’ve selected the Wordpress Zapier app and have been trying to login to a clients Wordpress account to begin building my Zap. However, each time log in (with the correct credentials) I receive the following error message:

authentication failed: Error parsing response. We got: "<html> <head> <META NAME="robots" CONTENT="noindex,nofollow"> <script src="/_Incapsula_Resource?S"

I’ve tried:

  • Deactivating all plugins (except the Zapier Plugin) on the clients Wordpress dashboard and tried to log in - no luck.
  • Removing the meta data from the page header - no luck
  • Creating a new admin user - no luck

I’d LOVE some help if anyone has run into this problem before and found the solution.

Thanks @Troy Tessalone, I probably should have mentioned that I’ve read through all the forum discussions on WP. Thanks for sending the links through however. I’ve submitted a support ticket, although this is rather time sensitive.
