Never succeed to connect my website

I love Zapier so much that I assumed all the other reviews were user error. Turns out this thing literally doesn't work at all. First you'll get a header error when trying to activate from the plugin page. If you get around that, you'll then receive authorization error when you try to connect with your Zap. Honestly surprised Zapier has let this sit here in this state like this. Luckily there are competitors with working options.

This plugin is an embarrassment for Zapier. It hasn't been tested with the last 3 major releases of WordPress, it gives a 'no valid header' error when installing and despite that it hasn't received an update in the last 6 months. When you feel adventurous and work to get the plugin running after all you find out that it doesn't even retrieve the custom user roles from your WordPress install and creating a new user with the right role simply doesn't work. I've worked with Zapier a lot and this is really disappointing that they let this clunky piece of code out in the wild. Don't loose your time on it.

I'm getting repeated authentication errors. I log back in with the same credentials and it works fine... then sends me another error via email: We noticed that your "WordPress zapier (WordPress)" account encountered an authentication problem. To make sure we don't lose any of your Tasks, we're holding them for your Zaps working with this account. Nothing to worry about, though! You won’t lose your data from these held Tasks if you play them within the next 30 days.
