Deactivate the HubSpot for Wordpress plugin

If you are using the original HubSpot for Wordpress plugin, you will need to deactivate it before installing the HubSpot - Free Marketing Plugin for WordPress. The HubSpot - Free Marketing Plugin for WordPress does not include a built-in shortcode feature for embedding forms and CTAs. Instead, you can embed HubSpot forms and CTAs directly on your pages and posts. Deactivating the plugin without removing shortcodes will cause any shortcode forms and CTAs to not render.

First, remove any form shortcodes:

  • In the Wordpress sidebar, navigate to HubSpot > Shortcodes.
  • Check to see if you have form embeds saved in fields next to shortcodes. If so, locate the pages on your site where the shortcodes are in use.
  • Remove the shortcode (ex: [hs_form id="0"]) and paste the form embed code directly into the Text view of the editor.
  • Update your page or post.

Next, remove any CTA shortcodes:

  • In the Wordpress sidebar, navigate to Calls to Action.
  • Check to see if you have CTAs saved in Wordpress. If so, locate the pages on your site where the shortcodes are in use.
  • Remove the shortcode (ex: [hs_action id="0"]) and paste the CTA embed code directly into the Text view of the editor.
  • Update your page or post.
Swapping shortcodes
One you've removed any shortcode, deactivate the HubSpot for WordPress plugin:
  • In the Wordpress sidebar, click Plugins > Installed Plugins.
  • Under HubSpot for Wordpress, click Deactivate.
