Description

Play video on YouTube

By default, there are two events that can be sent to Slack:

  1. When a post needs review (status transitioned to 'pending')
  2. When a post is published
  3. When there's a new comment

It's possible to add more events using slack_get_events filter. For more information check the doc.

Development of this plugin is done on GitHub. Pull requests are always welcome.

There are some extension plugins that notify events triggered by other plugins. Belows are some of them:

Installation

  1. Upload Slack plugin to your blog's wp-content/plugins/ directory and activate.
  2. Add new Incoming WebHooks service in your Slack, the URL is https://<SUBDOMAIN>.com/services/new/incoming-webhook (replace <SUBDOMAIN> with your Slack's subdomain). Once created, note the URL of the service (you'll set it into integration entry in your WordPress).
  3. Go to Slack menu in your WordPress to add the integration (make sure you're logged in as an Administrator).
