  2. Activate the Ultimate Slack Notifications through the ‘Plugins > Installed Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

Reviews

Looks like it will work well, until it breaks your site

EDIT: The creator has updated the plugin, but I have not had a chance to test it, so I don’t know whether my comment or rating still stands. I’ve changed it to 4 stars since I haven’t had a chance to test it.

I was excited to use this until I got a fatal error when trying to update or delete a ‘slack’ (this plugin’s associated posts). It also caused post functionality to break.

I took a screenshot of the error. Hopefully they can get this sorted out, because I liked the ease of use and good setup video.
