Search for WordPress in the list of integrations and connect your WordPress site with IFTTT.
Create a new IFTTT trigger by selecting Any new post.
Next, click the Add button next to Then That.
Connect IFTTT.com to your Discord channel.
Create a new IFTTT action by clicking Post a message to a channel. you’ll want to remove Post Content from from the Message field, otherwise long posts won’t post correctly.
That’s it! Time to test out your integration, create a new Post in your WordPress site. To accelerate the process, click Check Now under your IFTTT Applet.
If everything worked correctly you should see something that looks like this in the Discord channel you specified.
