May i get some help? trying to get Atom Feeds to post to a Slack channel

Post by menz01 »

Hello all,
I have a club and for years we used PHPBB but ever since Slack was introduced our usage of the PHPBB board has declined. I am the secretary for the club and i still use the PHPBB board to post minutes and other important info i dont want lost in Slack due to all the "chatter". what i was hoping to do is make it so if i post something in PHPBB that a message would be posted in a Slack channel like this (doesn't have to be exactly like this, just an example) "{username} just posted a new topic in the {forum name}" and maybe a link to the new topic?

so while searching i came across an archived and locked post viewtopic.php?t=2339831 but i cannot seem to get it to work for me. since that post is locked and old i cannot reply there for help so i thought i would try a new post. I am pretty sure i followed everything correctly but when i post in PHPBB nothing ever happens in slack. I will point out that my board requires logon to see anything. there is nothing viewable to the public (guests) at all. so i am not sure if that plays into my troubles, i'm sure it probably does.

has anyone been able to do this recently and can help me troubleshoot where i am going wrong? or perhaps what i am trying to do is just impossible.

thanks in advance,
Mike
