WP Webhook Netlify Deploy

Banner Image

Description

Easily deploy static sites using Wordpress and Netlify

Build Quickly and easily send webhooks to build your Netlify

Schedule Schedule daily, weekly or monthly builds

Status Check the status of your latest build to see if it was successful without even leaving Wordpress

NOTE: this plugin does not create a static version of your WordPress site. The plugin simply fires off a build request to Netlify, to rebuild your netlify hosted site (which is assumed to be pulling in WordPress data as a headless CMS).


Installation

From your WordPress dashboard

  1. Visit Plugins > Add New
  2. Search for "Deploy Webhook Button"
  3. Install plugin
  4. Activate the plugin
  5. Click on the new menu item "Deploy Netlify Webhook" and enter your site details/keys
  6. Enter enter your site_id, webhook POST address, Netlify API Key, and User-Agent
  7. Read the documentation to get started

Where do I get the field data from?

Scheduling Netlify Builds

Is it possible to set daily, weekly, or monthly builds. Using this plugin. Navigate to the 'Schedule Builds' settings page to select build time and date.

Consistant Scheduling

WordPress cron jobs are not 100% reliable as they are only fired when the site is visited. A little bit of work may be required to fix this.

If you have access to your hosting cPanel

  1. Add the following to your wp-config.php file - define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);
  2. Create a system cron

Creating a System Cron Job

  1. Log into your systems cpanel.
  2. Navigate to the Cron Jobs section - Search for "cron"
  3. Click "Cron Jobs" (If this does not show up you may not have access to this functionality)
  4. Select "Once per hour" from the common settings
  5. Add this command to the command input wget -q -O - https://your-domain.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron

If you do not have access to your cPanel

A solution to not being able to set up cPanel cron jobs is to use a third party scheduler. This ensures that at a certain time every day your WordPress cron events will fire.

  1. Set up an account with https://cron-job.org
  2. Login and navigate to "Cronjobs"
  3. Create a new cron job for https://your-domain.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron firing a minimum of once an hour every hour.

Now the Netlify hook (and all other cron jobs on your site) will run on time.


Admin Bar

A deploy button and the status badge of the last build is added to the admin bar. By default this will only be displayed to users that can manage_options.

You may allow other user roles with these three filters:

add_filter('netlify_status_capability', function() {
    return 'edit_pages';
});

add_filter('netlify_deploy_capability', function() {
    return 'edit_pages';
});

add_filter('netlify_adjust_settings_capability', function() {
    return 'edit_pages';
});
