STEP 4: Download the JSON Basic Authentication WordPress plugin. This is the same plugin that is used by the widely popular automation service called Integromat, which is like Zapier on steroids.

PLEASE NOTE: In the future, we will release our own plugin to make the integration simpler and more powerful.

In the WordPress site URL field enter your domain URL WITHOUT the /wp-admin. Do not add anything after the domain name.

In the Username and Password fields, add a username and password of anyone with Admin, Moderator, or Author WordPress role. You don't have to pass admin credentials as we use only blog posts related API endpoints in our integration.

If everything is done correctly, you will see the Success message appear. Please make sure you pass the correct credentials, otherwise, the integration will not work.

Done! If you would like to test your integration, follow the steps below.
How to publish an article through the integration

STEP 2: Choose WordPress integration and set your title, slug, content, etc. We recommend that you set your status to "DRAFT" if you're testing the integration for the first time, so you can see how it works.

For now, you need to set your categories, tags and featured images in WordPress manually, but we will add support for these options soon.

Don't miss the "**Load captions**" button, where you can add your video transcript into your blog post content with just one click.
