This article will describe a number of common causes for Slack issues, and how to resolve them yourself.

Common causes for errors:

Invalid API or revoked API access

  • When connecting Slack and Hugo, unique credentials allow Hugo to request/send data to/from your Slack account. Sometimes these credentials can become invalidated. To resolve, visit Hugo > Settings > Apps > Slack, click Disable Slack and then re-enable.

Slack FAQ:

If someone in my Slack team comments on a Hugo note that was posted to a channel, will it sync with Hugo?

  • Hugo supports note comments, and has mapped the Slack Threads feature with this functionality
  • So if someone uses the Threads feature to comment on a note in Slack, that comment will also show up in Hugo as a comment. The same works vice versa - if a Hugo user comments on a Hugo note that was posted to Slack, that comment will show up in Slack as a Thread message
