Set up custom forms in wordpress and pass data using forms api

forms

#1

I’m currently building my forms in Wordpress. I then want to post data to my HubSpot forms using the forms API. I have little experience with WordPress, and I’m trying to figure out the best way to do it. Right now I’m building it as a plugin. How would you do it?

Hi @eddieace,

I’m not particularly familiar with Wordpress development, but one thing you’ll want to make sure to do is to send the actual submission server side (see below). I look forward to hearing how other community members have handles similar scenarios.

Hi @eddieace

Yes, a plugin is a good approach if you want to push data from WordPress into HubSpot.

In your plugin you’ll need to set up OAuth to give WordPress access to the HubSpot API.

Personally I recommend saving your data into the WordPress database (using Advanced Custom Fields or something similar) before you try sending the data. That way your data won’t be lost if there’s a glitch in the matrix.

Have fun
