Connects WordPress to Salsa for embedding events, sign up forms, and reports.

SalsaPress connects your WordPress bllog to Salsa, allowing you to embed sign up forms, events, and reports into your WordPress site. Once embedded, Salsa Press keeps theses embeds up-to-date with any changes made in Salsa, meaning you can embed them and continue to manage and tweak the content in Salsa afterwards.

Please post all issues on Github not WordPress.

Full features include:

  • Sign Up Form Widget
  • Coming Events Widget
  • Event Sign Up Form Widget
  • Petitions Widget
  • Embeddable Reports, Sign Up Forms, Events, and Petitions
  • Filtering of Salsa Data by Chapter
  • Filtering of Events by Template
  • Translatable - including strings from Salsa like field names

Funding for the development of this plugin is provided by Kampaweb and Bus Federation.

With open source development by Lukas Zurschmiede, Dave Hall, Ben Byrne, and iCasper.

All Salsa accounts can use Salsa's API -- no activation is required. First-time users may want to go to this page in Salsa's documentation to learn how to retrieve the API hostname that Salsa Press needs. If you have questions about this document, or Salsa in general, please do contact Salsa Support.

Do I need to Have Salsa to Use This Plugin


How do I find my Base URL

  1. Log into Salsa
  2. Look at your URL
  3. Clear off any of the crap at the beginning (http, hq-, etc) and the anything after the .org or .com. There you have it.

It's not working but it's telling me I'm authenticated

Older Salsa accounts should just work - newer account may need salsa to activate their API credentials or something. They should do this for free if you contact and request it.

When you contact Salsa support you should mention that it's pretty messed up that the /api/authenticate.sjs endpoint returns "success" for customers that aren't allowed to use the rest of the API and that an error message on that endpoint - or heck even just a normal authentication failure - would be so much better.
