Connecting to CCB

Before you can use the plugin, you need to provide it with information needed to connect to your Church Community Builder account.

The first thing that you’ll need to do is create an API User in Church Community Builder. We recommend creating a user named “ccbpress“. Also, please reference your Getting Started page located inside your WordPress Admin, under Church Data > Welcome > Getting Started to be sure to assign the appropriate services to your user. (Church Community Builder has excellent documentation on creating API users.) In the API Settings page, you will also find the URL that we will use to make the connection.

Please follow the steps below to make the connection:

  1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to the Church Data > Settings > Church Community Builder menu.
  3. Under the Connection Settings section, enter the URLUsername, and Password that you got from the API Admin section of your Church Community Builder account.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Save Changes button.
  5. If it was successful, then you are done. Otherwise, check below for possible solutions.

Possible Errors #

  • The API URL appears to be incorrect – We did not get a known response from Church Community Builder. Check that the API URL is correct for your account.
  • Anything else – Follow the instructions listed in the Connection Results. There is most likely a problem with your Username or Password.
