You can use the WordPress connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from WordPress and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from WordPress, you first must establish a connection to WordPress. Follow these steps to connect WordPress to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the WordPress row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • URL - Enter the URL for your WordPress site.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. Basic is the default setting. For this setting, specify your login credentials:

      • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to WordPress.

      • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to WordPress.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
