Troubleshooting WP Fusion: How to Fix Skipped Webhooks in ActiveCampaign
If you’ve run into a recurring issue where WP Fusion skips webhooks, preventing the contact records from updating in your logs, then you’re in the right place. After diving into the matter, I found that your DNS settings could be the culprit, especially if you’re using a subdomain for your membership site.
Understanding the Issue
Initially, I thought following WP Fusion’s support advice to add a specific parameter would solve the problem. However, that didn’t seem to resolve the issue. When running tests, webhooks were still being skipped, which meant that the contact records were not updating as they should.
The Root Cause: DNS Settings
Upon further investigation, I discovered that the issue could be related to the DNS settings for your subdomain. If you have your subdomain set to “Proxy,” there’s a protective layer that might be blocking the webhook from WP Fusion. To fix this, make sure your DNS settings are set to “DNS only.”
Once you’ve changed your DNS settings to “DNS only,” run your tests again. You should find that the webhook issue is resolved, and your contact records update correctly in the WP Fusion log.
