This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Octoprint for WP


This plugin polls the Octoprint API and displays the status of your 3D printer in a widget or on a page with a shortcode.


  1. Activate the API in the Octoprint settings
  2. Copy the API key in the settings fields.
  3. Set the URL to access Octoprint, without slash at the end (ex: http://localhost:5000)

If Octoprint is not running on the same server than WordPress you will need to make Ocotprint accessible for this server. If it is a VM i recommend using a SSH tunnel.
