I'm using Zapier and WP Webhooks Pro to connect Google Sheet and WP to auto-publish posts for each row added to the spreadsheet.

It works like as expected and all fields, including custom fields, are populated correctly expect those that have a string with a comma and/or semicolon. Those get cut off.

Setting up the custom field in Zapier Setting up the custom field in Zapier

Success output in Zapier after posting to WP Success output in Zapier after posting to WP

Custom field in WP (cut off after semicolon) Custom field in WP

Any help/direction on how to fix this issue would so much appreciated.

WP Webhooks Pro also accepts JSON constructs for more complex strings. Here's an example of how your meta_input can look like:


Simply paste that within your Zap and change the data:image/png;bse64,iVBOR....... to your dynamic value. :)
