There are alot of breaking changes in this new version. If you have not made any changes then you should be fine to upgrade to this version.

This is a simple plugin which gives you the extensive functionality to manage zoom meetings, users, reports from WordPress. From new update 2.0 it has a more friendly and clean design with lots of bug fixes. Users can now paginate through meetings and select users to view each users meetings. However, still webinar module is not integrated.

Few Features:

  1. Manage Meetings
  2. List/Add Users
  3. Clean and Friendly UI
  4. Shortcodes
  5. Daily and Account Reports


  • Webinar module not integrated

Use shortcode

  • [zoom_api_link meeting_id=”full_meeting_link” class=”your_class” id=”your_id” title=”Text of Link”] -> You can show the link of your meeting in your site anywhere using the shortcode. Replace your meeting link in place of “meeting_ID”. – You need to insert full meeting link because of vanity URL.

I haven’t been able to fully incorporate into my website yet as API keys are required for full integration and these are only available on paid Zoom accounts. The negative reviews on here are from people unable to find their API keys!
Having said that, I would like to give plaudits to the author/developer Deepen Bajracharya who actively answered my queries and helped me whilst trying to configure in my WordPress installation. A top developer whose work is appreciated and applauded by me. Thanks

Steps to perfection

Kudos to the developer. Really well done.
Zoom is definitely on the way up and this WordPress plugin is doing the same! Works very well. Keep up the good work… We all know that GOOD, WELL CODED plugins dot NOT happen overnight!
So please ignore the 1 star reviews of people who don’t even take the trouble of understanding the plugin.

Almost perfect!

Pros – seamlessly and easily add video conferencing to my website. I can set up meetings, create new users and access reports without leaving WP. Had a couple rookie-questions on setup; developer responded promptly.

Cons – a couple very minor issues with editing existing meetings. I can do this directly through zoom, so it’s not a huge issue. Just wish it could be done using the plugin.

Thank you for making my life easier!!!
