404 Management by @Fosters saves your visitors from dead links. The application manages 404 Page Not Found errors by allowing you to direct users to other URLs , error pages that boost usability, improve user experience, and even raise a smile.
The app manages 404 errors in two ways:
All 404 Page Not Found errors will be recorded in a log You can redirect to a new target (eg. custom 404 error page) What are 404 Pages?
A 404 page is also known as an “error page” or “Page Not Found” page. This page indicates that the user reached the domain they requested, but the URL path provided no information. 404 pages cover any broken or dead links on your site.
Your 404 page catches visitors who click on that broken link so they won’t get bounced off your site or rerouted to a broken page. Instead, they’ll get a simple error message that says “Page Not Found,” and they can go back and start over. While it's better to usually fix the broken link, it's important to always have a 404 page in place as a backup.

Forum posts Comments and Reviews Status updates And all other content from official IPS apps and also 3rd party apps Get LinkFavicon by @Fosters and bring linking to a whole new level!
What are Favicons?
Favicons are small square images used by web browsers to show a graphical representation of the site being visited and show on many places: browser toolbars, bookmarks, tabs, address bars, and desktop shortcuts. They provide immediate identification of their represented sites, and play a critical role in site branding and product recognition. You have probably seen many favicons before, even if you don’t know what they are.
Will this affect my site's performance?
This app relies upon a fetch to Google's Shared Stuff (S2) service, so your server is not affected by the favicon pull. Images are in PNG format (not ICO) and will render correctly in all browsers using the proper <img> tags. Finally, this all happens asynchronously, so there is no delay to the page.

Channels -- Organize your team conversations in open channels. Make a channel for a project, a topic, a team, or anything—everyone has a transparent view of all that’s going on. For sensitive information, create private channels and invite a few team members Direct Messages -- Send messages directly to another person or to a small group of people for more focused conversations.
Calls -- Take a conversation from typing to face-to-face by starting a Slack voice or video call in any Channel or Direct Message. From there, you're one click away from sharing your screen, so everyone can follow along.
Drag-and-drop Files -- Not just your messages, but all your files, images, PDFs, documents, and spreadsheets can be dropped right into Slack and shared with anyone you want. Add comments, star for later reference, and it’s all completely searchable. If you use any services like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box, just paste the link and that document is immediately in sync and searchable too
Search -- Everything in Slack (messages, notifications, files, and all) s automatically indexed and archived so that you can have it at your fingertips whenever you want. Slack also indexes the content of every file so you can search within PDFs, Word documents, Google docs, and more. With one search box and a set of powerful search operators, you can slice and dice your way to that one message in your communication haystack.
Slack offers free pricing for new or small teams, and paid plans for larger teams.
What does this app do?

A new member creates an account A content item is reported An unapproved new content is created IPS\Log::log() function will send content to slack if you're in dev mode ( \IPS\IN_DEV ) This app does NOT integrate or sync your members between IPS and Slack.
