I want to create an integration with Discord where I can set up automatic updates in a channel when there is a new blog post on our Webflow site. Zapier doesn’t seem to support this, I can trigger a discord post into a collection list in Webflow but not the other way around.
@ChrisDrit Thanks for the detailed steps. Really appreciated your time and effort.
I want to include heading and URL to the latest blog post in the message after the new item is published since we regularly use scheduling for blogs. I might be wrong but it looks like the webhook available is triggered when the item is created, not when it’s published.
There’re multiple lists on the site but I would like trigger to only be the Blog list, excluding others. Will this be achievable with the steps provided above or does it requires custom webhook?
Yea, they don’t make “published” available unfortunately. That’s where you have to get creative. One approach is to add a field like “published” and filter for it in Zapier. When it exists you allow the zap to continue.
Yea, again, Webflow isn’t giving us that granular level control. But it’s okay, you can just add it via another filter in Zapier. Just filter on the CMS Collection name or a field within it. When it matches you know it’s the correct Collection and allow it to continue.
Honestly, this is the point where Zapier starts to break down as a good solution, and where Make (Integromat) starts to take over as the better choice.
Doing the things I just mentioned in Make becomes really simple (and for a much cheaper price).
Here’s a walk through of how to set this up in Make and not get charged for it:
