Hide My WP Ghost and Zapier

Everybody knows that Zapier is a great tool when you need to create automated tasks on your WordPress site or to trigger an action when you create new posts or pages

We recently tested Zapier to create new posts in WordPress while Hide My WP Ghost plugin is activated.

We noticed that Zapier needs the xml-rpc.php file to work properly and we switched off the option Hide My WP > Tweaks > Disable XML-RPC access. With this option off we were able to create and promote our posts on Social Media.

Having this option on it’s not safe for your website. Many brute force attacks are made through this URL. Sometimes you need to make compromises in order to prevent functionality issues.
