With a WordPress Google Sheets connection, you can enter something in your Google Sheets and it will automatically show on your website. Moxet Khan will show you how with the help of JetEngine and the REST API functionality. It’s like connecting two different worlds, each with its own language, and making them understand each other.

Understanding the Basics

Imagine REST API as a translator. JetEngine, on the other hand, is like the engine of a car. It powers up WordPress and makes this integration possible. Setting up a Google Sheets to WordPress connection helps Google Sheets and WordPress to communicate with each other.

Setting up Google Sheets

First things first, let’s set up a Google Sheet. It’s as easy as making a shopping list. You just need to create a new sheet and add some fields. For our example, let’s go with ‘name’, ’email’, and ‘designation’. Each of these fields will hold specific information.

Implementing the Google App Script

Now, let’s bring in the Google App Script. Think of it as a magic wand that transforms your Google Sheet data into a language (JSON format) that WordPress can understand.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Copy the script code below:
    function getSheetDataAsJSON() {
      var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getActiveSheet();
      var range = sheet.getDataRange();
      var values = range.getValues();
      var headers = values[0];
      var jsonData = [];
      for (var i = 1; i < values.length; i++) {
        var row = values[i];
        var rowObj = {};
        for (var j = 0; j < headers.length; j++) {
          rowObj[headers[j]] = row[j];
      return JSON.stringify(jsonData);
    function doGet() {
      return ContentService.createTextOutput(getSheetDataAsJSON())

  2. Go to your Google Sheet and click on ‘Extension’ then ‘App Scripts’.
  3. Remove everything and paste the copied code.
  4. Click on ‘Deploy’.

Voila! Your Google Sheet data is now in JSON format.

Setting up JetEngine REST API Endpoint

  1. Go to JetEngine in your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Click on ‘REST API endpoint’.
  3. Create a new endpoint and paste the URL from the Google App Script.
  4. Click ‘Send a request’ and then ‘Save’.

Creating a Query Builder in WordPress

  1. Go back to JetEngine and click on ‘Query Builder’.
  2. Click ‘Add new’.
  3. Choose ‘REST API’ for the query type.
  4. Enable ‘Our Result’ and choose ‘Sheet API’ for the endpoint.
  5. Click ‘Add Query’.

Creating a Table Builder in WordPress

  1. Go to ‘Table Builder’ in JetEngine.
  2. Click ‘Add new’.
  3. Choose ‘REST API Google Sheet’ for the query.
  4. Click ‘Fetch Data’.
  5. Create columns for ‘name’, ’email’, and ‘designation’.
  6. Click ‘Create Table’.

Displaying the Data on a WordPress Page

  1. Create a new page in WordPress.
  2. Add a dynamic table to the page.
  3. Choose ‘Google Sheet API Table’.
  4. Click ‘Update’.

Updating the Data in Real-Time

One of the coolest things about this integration is that any changes you make in Google Sheets will be reflected in real-time on your WordPress page. It’s like having a live broadcast from Google Sheets to your WordPress page.

Adding Images to the Data

  1. Add an ‘image’ field in Google Sheets.
  2. Add images to the field.
  3. Refresh the data in the Table Builder in WordPress.
  4. Add a new column for the images in the table. In this example, the following HTML code to style it:
    <img style="width: 100px;" src="%s" />
  5. Click ‘Update’.

Real-World Applications

Integrating Google Sheets with WordPress using JetEngine REST API is like having a superpower. It opens up a world of possibilities. Here are a few real-world applications:

  • Content Management
    Bloggers can use Google Sheets to plan and manage their content. They can update their post titles, descriptions, and publication dates in Google Sheets, and it will automatically update on their WordPress site.
  • Product Catalog
    E-commerce businesses can manage their product catalog in Google Sheets. They can easily update product details, prices, and images, and it will reflect on their WordPress site in real time.
  • Team Directory
    Companies can create a dynamic team directory on their WordPress site. They can manage their team members’ details in Google Sheets, and it will automatically update their site.
  • Event Calendar
    Event organizers can manage their event calendar in Google Sheets. They can update event details, dates, and images, and it will automatically update on their WordPress site.

Common Google Sheet WordPress Troubleshooting Tips

Just like learning to ride a bike, you might encounter a few bumps along the way when setting up your WordPress Google Sheets Integration. But don’t worry, here are some common issues and how to navigate them:

  • Google Sheets Data Not Displaying on WordPress Page
    Double-check your Google App Script and make sure it’s correctly implemented. Also, ensure that the URL from the script is correctly pasted in the JetEngine endpoint.
  • Images Not Displaying in WordPress
    Make sure the image URLs in Google Sheets end with an image extension like .jpg or .png. Also, ensure that the image URLs are correctly fetched in the Table Builder in WordPress.
  • Changes in Google Sheets Not Reflecting on WordPress Page
    Refresh the data in the Table Builder in WordPress. If the issue persists, check your Google App Script and JetEngine endpoint.
