I wonder if there could be a Slack slash command that shares a post on Discourse? I see now there is already a /forums command. So maybe that command or a similar one could share a post with DIscourse, sort of like /fsi shares a post with FSI (not quite the same thing, but usage could be the same). This command could be used to share a Slack post with a potentially broader audience while also ensuring that it could be found again weeks or months later.
This is already installed.
/forums post 10 will prompt you for a starting post in slack (10 messages back), and an ending (last), and turn it into a draft here.
I did try /forums post 1, but if there’s a “draft” here, I don’t see it or don’t know where to look for it. Anyway, I think it should work more like /fsi.
Try with 5 or 10, and make sure it’s in a public channel… it works very well.
I got it to work after you explained it to me. It takes a few steps, but I guess it’s good enough. Thanks
Not at the moment. In general, we want to make sure the integration from here->slack works, as it’s the more important one, since you can put a lot more detail here. If you want it in both, I’d just post here
When these forums get more active, we will likely tweak the integration to be more “tag aware” and post to separate channels in slack.
Yeah, since /forums sends me here to edit anyway, I guess just starting here makes the most since. So whatever I post in the General category here will get copied to the Slack #general channel?
Yes, well, a link/summary posts.
Once more people start using this, I’ll switch it around to post in slack via tags, but for now, we want it to be seen for discoverability.
