WP GoToWebinar


WP GoToWebinar is a totally free plugin used to display upcoming webinars in a table, calendar or widget from your GoToWebinar account which link to registration forms on your website.

By using simple shortcodes or the WPBakery Page Builder plugin you can place upcoming webinars or registration forms on any post or page with ease.

As webinars pass and new webinars are created, the upcoming webinar display updates automatically each day making WP GoToWebinar a zero-maintenance experience.

Use the shortcode [gotowebinar] to display webinars in a table format, [gotowebinar-calendar] to display webinars in a calendar format, [gotowebinar-reg key=”YOUR WEBINAR KEY”] to display a registration form for a specific webinar, or use [gotowebinar-reg key=”upcoming”] to show a registration form of your next upcoming webinar!

There’s also a range of additional shortcode parameter that can be used which can:

  1. Only show webinars from a particular timezone
  2. Only show webinars if the webinar title contains or doesn’t contain particular text
  3. Only show webinars within the next X number of days
  4. Hide a certain phrase in the title from displaying

Please checkout the plugin FAQ section for more information on the different shortcode parameters, or better yet use the WPBakery Page Builder plugin.

WP GoToWebinar also enables your users to convert the times and dates of upcoming webinar displays and registration forms into their local timezone with a click of a link! Reduce spam registrations with Google reCaptcha support.

Translate/customise standard registration form fields and create dynamic success and error messages for your users simply and quickly. Customise colours of various elements and enable hover tooltips to provide additional information to your users on upcoming webinars and registration forms.

1. I get “Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress” I’m running 5.7.2 2. The instructions to add your consumer key are out-dated. The link works but none of the following instructions. “click “My Apps” and sign in with your GoToWebinar details and then click the “Add a new App”” This doesn’t exist. 3. Check box’s on my GTW webform turn into select menus on the plugin register. 4. No in-line “thank you for registering” functionality. Otherwise the form DID work and the registration went through.

I got asked to implement GoToWebinar into our company website. And as much fun as hand rolling a complicated API integration sounded… I, of course, immediately scoured the web for any sort of simple solution out there. That’s when I came across WP GotToWebinar and installed it. It’s very easy to connect to GoToWebinar. And whenever I had a rookie question it was quickly answered by the thorough documentation and FAQ section. Liked it so much we bought the pro version. Although the free covered most of our needs. Definitely recommend it.
