Action Network Wordpress Plugin

A free Wordpress plugin for the Action Network online organizing tools, developed by Jonathan Kissam.

Please note that this version is not maintained, will not work with Action Network's v3 embed codes, and may break even more in the future. Latest version available on the plugin repository.


  • Create a Wordpress shortcode from any Action Network embed code.
  • Manage your saved embed codes using the Wordpress backend. Supports sorting by title, type and last modified date, and provides a search function.
  • Use [actionnetwork_calendar] shortcode and Action Network Calendar widget to show a list of upcoming events. Optionally outputs upcoming events in JSON. Development of this feature was supported by The People's Lobby - if you like it, please consider making a donation to them.
  • If you are an Action Network Partner, use your API key to sync all of your actions from Action Network to Wordpress.
  • Create signup widgets which allow visitors to your site to sign up for your email list without using Action Network javascript embeds. This allows you to place a signup form on every page (for example in the sidebar), and still load Action Network embed codes for actions on particular pages (since Action Network's scripts will only load one embed code per page). This feature does require the API key, so you have to be an Action Network Partner to use it.
