WordPress-Specific Features and Limitations

Skyvia has the following limitations for WordPress:

  • In the Domain connection parameter, you may specify the protocol to use — http or https. However, some WordPress instances have problems using the https protocol. When you use the https protocol, an error occurs when you query data from some of the tables, like Posts, PostRevisions, etc. In this case, you have to use the http protocol in the Domain parameter in order to work with these tables.

  • Skyvia does not support custom fields in the default WordPress connector. However, if you need to work with custom fields in WordPress, you may contact our support team.
