I’m trying to upload a PDF file in Google Drive to WordPress. I was wondering which value I should use for the WordPress Upload Media file field.

There are many links returned from the Google Drive Find a File step. I’ve tried download URL but I’ve got the error as below. I’ve also tried some other links but none of them can upload successfully.

Hi @ed_li 

Good question.

The error seems to indicate the issue is with the connected WordPress account.

Hi @Troy Tessalone 

Thanks for your reply. 

In fact, I can upload a file to WordPress with the ID or Web Content Link. However, when I opened the file, error showed as below:


While setting up the connection, no fields for me to enter a API Key. The connection is set successfully. 


By the way, can anyone tell me which item from Google Drive I have to use for the ‘File’ field?  Is it correct to use the ‘Download Url’?


Thanks in advance.

Problem solved. I should simply use the ‘File’ item. 

Thanks anyway.
