Posting to a Wordpress Website

Hello! Group

I am working through in my head how to set up an playbook or autobook to post to WordPress.

Step 1 content is written, formatted, and placed into a google drive folder.
Step 2 “When new items are found in the folder” bardeen can grab them and publish to WordPress as a draft.
Step 3 (After) the article can be further configured on Wordpress and publish.

The Step 2 is really what I am looking for.

There are a lot of apps and possibly an RSS fee that could help with this. Has anyone already completed a workflow using Bardeen to accomplish something like this?

Hi @cccruver37 interesting workflow!

We don’t have a Wordpress integration, yet Bardeen should be able to get the data into Google Drive and extract data from Gdrive files too.

A way you can send data to Wordpress is though our HTTPS POST requests


I’m not a coding expert, so I asked ChatGPT. This was the response:

To send data from Bardeen to WordPress using a HTTPS POST request, you can follow these steps:

  1. Obtain the necessary credentials: You will need the WordPress site’s URL, an authentication token or username/password combination with sufficient privileges to create drafts, and the desired content to be published.
  2. Construct the POST request: Here’s an example of how you can structure the request using Python’s requests library:
import requests

# Set the necessary information
wordpress_url = ""
auth_token = "your-authentication-token"
content = {
    "title": "Your Article Title",
    "content": "Your article content goes here",
    "status": "draft"

# Send the POST request
headers = {
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
    "Authorization": f"Bearer {auth_token}"

response =, headers=headers, json=content)

# Check the response
if response.status_code == 201:
    print("Article draft created successfully!")
    print("Failed to create the article draft.")
    print(f"Response code: {response.status_code}")
    print(f"Response content: {response.content}")

  1. Customize the code: Make sure to replace the placeholders (, your-authentication-token, “Your Article Title”, “Your article content goes here”) with the actual values corresponding to your WordPress setup and the content you want to publish.
  2. Handle the response: The example code above checks if the response status code is 201 (indicating a successful creation of the draft). You can modify this code to suit your needs and handle different response scenarios.

Remember to install the requests library if you haven’t already by running pip install requests in your Python environment.

Please note that the code provided assumes you have the necessary authentication token or username/password combination to access your WordPress site’s REST API. If you’re using a plugin or a custom authentication mechanism, you may need to adjust the headers or authentication process accordingly.

Feel free to adapt the code snippet to your programming language or framework of choice if you’re not using Python.

Please go though the tutorial and do share your updates!

We might be able to ask for help from our engineering team to try to help you set this up.

Can be a great story to share to @Chris :smile:

Thanks Ivan! I will try to look into this throughout the week. However, I will say I am not a programmer either so this is on the edge of my abilities.

I’m a part of a large AI blog content group and this is something a lot of them are struggling with. If I can get a playbook or autobook working for this, then I would like to share a video step by step guide with the group.

Yeah I agree, it’s not easy for non-engineers.

The most straightforward solution I think would be an integration to Zapier, to send data there and connect it to your apps.

Or… a direct integration to Wordpress.

Would you like to propose these ideas on :bulb:Share an idea ?

Sure. However, it seems like the “Share an Idea” section doesn’t have any tags available that I can use, which are required.

I think integration-request would work there!

But good feedback I’ll remove the necesary tag (make it optional)
