I have the same problem.

it runs the node successfully, but the information that appears in the output is from the last post, which in this case, because it is a new blog, appears “Hello World” and does not create the post.

I used the community template to test. N8N - Version 0.231.3

Hey @Patrick1 and @Flavio_Pavanelli

Welcome to the n8n community :tada:

I have done a couple of tests and as I guessed the error shown in the screenshot comes from the WordPress instance you are using has a wrong permalink structure.

In order for the WordPress API to work correctly, the WordPress permalinks structure must not be set to Plain. By modifying this parameter in Settings > Permalinks, the Post creation of the WordPress node will work normally.
