We just got our own Slack community, which you can read about here: http://themehybrid.com/weblog/theme-hybrid-meets-slack
Slack is a real-time chat system that’s used for WordPress.org teams to communicate. It’s pretty sweet.
If you’re a paid club member, let me know if you want to join by posting below or leaving a comment on the announcement post.
Hey, Justin! I’d like a Slack invite, please.
Haven’t totally got the hang of Slack yet but I’m always up for an experiment.
I’m not a paid member, can I get the invite?
Dan, it looks like your post got pushed to the top of the whole thread somehow.
Yeah, you’re a theme author member, so it’s the same thing to me. 🙂
I have just downloaded the members plugin as it was recommended by a site on www.
I have a number of questions / statements.
1. I am reasonably computer literate but not a programmer.
2. I am hungry.
3. I run a charity and that is where I want to use something like this.
4. I would like to Import about 1000 records from a mysql data set (csv or xls etc possible) with the users name, email, other contact info.
4.a. Send each a logon data in two emails. The first to tell them about the system and their user ID the second with a password.
5. And this is the real point I want the user to be able to click a link in a page on our site called ‘EDIT’ they would then be taken to a logon page, once they have validated their id against that page to be redirected to a page of data that they can then change, but only if they are logged in.
E.g. please see defibtracker.co.uk you will see HEARTS on a UK Map. if you click a HEART it pops up some data about that site. in the popup is an EDIT link. This currently takes the user to a partly prepopulated form entry page. I wish that this can be interupted and the validation process taken before access to the Form.
I hope this makes sense.
And I’m still hungry 🙂
Please open a topic of your own rather than posting replies in unrelated topics. This topic is about joining the Slack channel.
Basically, the answer to your #4 and #5 questions is that you’ll need to hire a developer to build a custom plugin for you. I’d first search the WordPress plugin repository though to see if there’s anything similar to what you’re looking for.
I wanna join on Slack but why is https://hybridwp.slack.com/ redirecting to https://lakmar.slack.com/?
