Removal of the native WordPress integration - September 9, 2019
On October 7, 2019, we are removing the native WordPress integration from the Hootsuite dashboard.
We made this decision because the advantages of maintaining native integration no longer outweigh the costs to Hootsuite and our customers. WordPress uses a non-standard authentication system, so maintaining the integration negatively affects our ability to react quickly to changes in other platforms. By removing it, we can strengthen our authentication infrastructure and stay focused on work that delivers more value to our customers.
WordPress.org users can continue to create and edit pages and posts, moderate comments, and share posts to social networks from within Hootsuite Streams by downloading the free WordPress.org app from the Hootsuite App directory.
WordPress.com users will no longer be able to publish posts and blogs to their WordPress accounts, or monitor their WordPress posts through Hootsuite.
