Recursion detected

Hi, I'm trying to configure Zapier to inform on Slack about a new entry on the website (WordPress) - both services are correctly connected to Zapier, but when testing the trigger (first step with WordPress) I get the following message:

Error while retrieving: WordPress ran into an issue. Error code 500: Recursion detected

What does it mean?

Good question.

What WordPress trigger event are you using?

@PZHK Hey, we’d love to help you out! Can you please share a little more about the trigger you are using for this Zap? I’d like to confirm it is the New Post trigger. I see a bug in our internal logs for Error 500 but the actual error message is different. If you’re up for it, you can always reach out to our Support team so they can take a closer look at your account and Zap.
