html-embed Tutorial

Welcome to the html-embed tutorial!


This tutorial assumes you have already completed the Getting Started with WidgetBot tutorial. If you have not, please read it and invite the bot.

Need help?

If you need any assistance adding WidgetBot, please ask in the server. However, please make sure you mention what the issue is, send your code in a codeblock (```), include your server and channel IDs, and optionally include a link to your site.

Getting Started

To get started, add the following code where you want the widget to display.

Example Code

<script src=""></script>

If you run your site with this code, you should see the widget, showing the official WidgetBot server.

Setting your server

As you can see, there are 2 parts to this code: the Server ID, Channel ID. (There's also the width and height for setting the size of the embed.)

You can get the Server and Channel IDs from Discord: Go to the Appearance tab in User Settings, and turn on Developer Mode. Then, right-click the server icon or channel and click Copy ID.


The Channel ID you choose will be the default channel that will show when Crate opens. However, the user can switch the channel.

Once you set the Server ID and Channel ID, the widget should now show your server when you open it.


You have successfully set up WidgetBot. However you can further customize WidgetBot to your needs. Read below for more info.


You can use html-embed's API to access WidgetBot's embed-api. For more info, click here.
