Integration of Webhooks By Connect and SMTP by Connect

Webhooks By Connect

Webhooks By Connect is a free service which allows you to integrate your WordPress website with custom services. It allows you to automate any tasks on your WordPress site. For instance, say you want to trigger an update for your WordPress themes every time there is a new version of WordPress, then you could do that with Webhooks By Connect. You can also trigger an update for your plugins, create backups, update your contact information, send out newsletters and more. It’s really flexible and easy to use.

SMTP by Connect

SMTP by Connect brings the power of regular email sending to your WordPress website or blog. With SMTP by Connect you can easily send emails via your WordPress installation, without having to handle complex settings elsewhere. No need to set up an external mail server or run PHP scripts through SMTP. You can send emails from any email address that you choose, and it even works with domains that aren’t registered with WordPress. This way, if SMTP fails for some reason, you won’t lose your email. And unlike regular PHP mail function, no error messages are displayed to the users.

Integration of Webhooks By Connect and SMTP by Connect

Integration of Webhooks By Connect and SMTP by Connect is relatively simple. In order to integrate Webhooks By Connect with your website, you need to fplow these steps:

  • First go to Webhooks By Connect and click on “Settings” from the top menu bar.
  • After clicking on Settings, a drop-down menu will appear where you need to click on “Create a webhook” option.
  • After clicking on Create a webhook option, a new page will load where you need to enter a “Webhook URL”. Your webhook URL will be used by Webhooks By Connect to send requests to your web application. In our case, we need to enter a webhook URL for our application so that when someone uses Webhooks By Connect to interact with our application, the request will be sent to our application instead of being sent directly from Webhooks By Connect . As a result, we will have a chance at processing the request before it is sent back to Webhooks By Connect . There are two ways in which we can create a webhook URL for our application:
  • We can create a webhook URL by going to WP Admin > Settings > General > Webhook URLs and entering our webhook URL there (we will discuss this method later. Or we can
  • We can create a webhook URL by adding a new route in our Laravel application (which we will discuss next. If we had more than one Webhooks By Connect application, we would want them all to point to the same Laravel application (that is why we want HTTP methods and paths for our Laravel routes and not just the webhook URL. So we need to create a route that accepts GET requests and responds with an empty array . The response body of the empty array will be passed on as the request body of the original request from Webhooks By Connect .
  • As mentioned earlier, we can either create this route using Laravel or we can do it using WP Admin > Settings > General > Webhook URLs . Let’s first see how we can do it using Laravel . To create this route using Laravel , we first need to add the webhook_by_connect:webhook middleware to our routes/web.php file as shown below:

    Route::get('/web', '[email protected]')->middleware('webhook_by_connect:webhook');

    Next, we need to create the webhook contrpler in routes/web.php file as shown below:

    <php /** * Route contrpler for "web" hook * @see https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/web-hks/#usage / namespace AppHttpContrplers; use IlluminateHttpRequest; class WebhookContrpler extends Contrpler { /* * Handle web request * @param IlluminateHttpRequest $request * @return array */ public function web(Request $request. { $this->validate($request, [ 'method' => 'get', ]); return ['body' ]; } }

    Now let’s see how we can do it using WP Admin > Settings > General > Webhook URLs . To create this route using WP Admin > Settings > General > Webhook URLs , we first need to create an empty route in our Laravel application (which we will discuss next. Next, in WP Admin > Settings > General > Webhook URLs , we need to edit the “Webhook URL” field and enter our empty route in it (which we will discuss next. The end result should look like this:
