To get started with WidgetBot, first you must invite the bot to your server.
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.
# Adding the Bot
WidgetBot will not work if you don't add the bot to your server!
In WidgetBot v2, by default, guests are disabled, and users must sign in with their Discord account to chat. If you want to enable guests and let users type in any name without logging in, send
??guestmode in your server after adding the bot.
After you add the bot to your server, you need to pick a format to use in your website.
You can choose between Crate and one of our inline formats.
- Crate (recommended): Shows a little chat button in the corner of your website. It shows message notifications and provides an API. Info, Tutorial, Documentation
# Inline formats
These let you put a chat box in your site you can change the size, etc.
- react-embed: Provides access to the embed as a React component, and lets you use the embed-api. Documentation
Choose one of the formats to continue the tutorial and learn about adding the embed to your website.
