Fixing Slack for iPhone’s “Only Some People Can Post” Error

If Slack on the iPhone displays “Only some people can post.” in channels where you should have posting permissions, force-quit it to fix the problem.

Fortunately for me, I’m still using my 1st gen iPhone SE, which still works as well for me as the day I bought it and I can’t see any possible reason to spend money on upgrading it, which Slack is going to stop supporting entirely on Sep. 1. So, pretty soon I’m not going to have to worry about it either way.

LOL, I just noticed the first “unread topic” on the bottom this page is 'Apple Publishes ‘Longevity, by Design" White Paper’. That should be good for a laugh.

This may also be helpful: Both the macOS and iOS/iPadOS versions of Slack have options to reset caches on restart. In macOS this can be found in the help menu. In iOS and iPadOS, you can find the reset caches toggle in the Settings app under Slack.
