# Tutorial

To get started with WidgetBot, first you must invite the bot to your server.

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.

# Adding the Bot

Add the official bot

Important

WidgetBot will not work if you don't add the bot to your server!

Guests

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.
