I have the plugin setup. However it is sending topics and replies from staff categories into the designated Slack channel. This, obviously presents an issue regarding privilege - I doubt this is intentional, so is there a work-around ?
Also, regarding the setup docs on the repo page above:
- after step 4 it states:
By default, every new post on your Discourse will now create a Slack message in the channel you specified…
- … this should be changed to state that setting up the
slash commandis not optional as once this plugin is installed, web-hook setup and a new topic is created/replied - it doesn’t send to slack channel unless these instructions are followed, followed by entering the appropriate /command in the slack channel assigned:
/discourse [watch|follow|mute|help|status] [category|all]
watch – notify this channel for new topics and new replies
follow – notify this channel for new topics
mute – stop notifying this channel
status – show current notification state and categories
/discourse watch all
only then will new topics/replies be sent successfully to the slack channel.
