Hi there @peter34,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

Since a variety of setup issues can prevent WordPress from connecting with Zapier, you may want to try a few different solutions.

  • Since other plugins can also interfere with Zapier's connection, I would suggest disabling all plugins besides the Zapier plugin, then creating a new connection to see if that helps the issue.
  • You could also try changing the permalink for the WordPress site in case that is causing a connection issue: 
  • The type of permalink used on the WordPress installation is causing trouble. To change the permalink type:
    • In your WordPress site, go to Settings, then click Permalinks.
    • Click any permalink option other than "Plain" (this is the default option).
    • Click "Save Changes".

I hope this helps! 😊
