First, we recommend using the plugin for three primary reasons:
To set a default Form at the bottom of every blog post or page. This way, you don't have to edit all your posts and pages to have a Form.
To set a CK Landing Page as your WP page.
To Tag Subscribers that visit a specific page on your site, or alternatively to show them custom content on that page.
Common WordPress Issues
My Form dropdown menu is missing some of my Forms or Landing Pages
Go to the plugin page (Settings > ConvertKit) and click the Save Changes button.
If that doesn't get the plugin to load the latest forms, try disconnecting and reconnecting the integration.
Again on the plugin page, select your API Key and Secret and copy them somewhere else, then delete them. Click the Save Changes button. Now your plugin is disconnected from your account.
Re-add the API Key and Secret, and click Save Changes. Now your plugin should be reconnected and pull the latest list of Forms and Landing Pages from your ConvertKit account.
Now go back to your page or post and refresh the page and see if the option is available in the dropdown now.
My CK Landing Page as my WP page isn't working
Make sure the editor is completely blank. There should be no content at all on the page. Double-check that the Form dropdown is set to "None" and the Landing Page dropdown is set to the Landing Page you want to show. Only if all three of these things are true will the plugin be able to load the Landing Page in place of the the Wordpress page.
If the system detects any content added on the page, or if there is a ConvertKit Form trying to load, it will choose not to display the Landing Page at all.
I embedded my Form but it looks or behaves wrong
I can't trigger a Modal by a link click
There are two common reasons for this.
If you're making a button using your Wordpress theme's interface, that usually won't work since most themes don't allow adding attributes to buttons—just a URL. In this case, you'll need to create your own button (likely using HTML) in order to get it to work.
