 Discord webhooks?
#
Hi! So some sites let you make it so that when a new topic is posted, a bot posts about it to a discord channel (RPG Initiative for example). I was wondering if that could be a possibility in the future? I included a link to the setup guide in Discord from discord's end.

I'll be honest, I don't know much about this stuff, but I do think it would be a really neat handy feature. I'm not sure what else I can include about it here, but I'm sure other people, TheMorrigan for instance, knows more about it and can provide more information.

from what I'm reading, the only thing required to accomplish this would be a place to insert a webhook url for a specific forum. then, we just need our server to post '{ "content" : "<the message you want to post goes in these quotes>" }'

this does not seem too difficult to me at a glance, but I will check into this more fully later.

It's a pretty awesome bot but it can be more complicated than that. I don't know the specifics as I run on the current version of Invision Power but if you need to John the code for the current version is on github. The coding has had a complete re-wraite so I doubt it would be much help but mine has it to where I can choose which discord channel it posts to per forum.

Not that I have anything helpful to point out here, but this is EXACTLY what I was just looking for for my new site. I've seen it in a few places, but I wasn't sure if it worked linked to a jcink forum. I seriously hope it's possible because I refuse to host my sites with any other servers. JCINK is my obsession. Lol.


Cannot wait to see if it is something we can accomplish...by "we" of course I don't mean me, because I have no ability to aid. So...like the "royal we" <.<

Bahaha, Yvonne! My thoughts exactly. We means you guys! About the only thing I can do is make a site look pretty, when it comes to webhooks and stuff? naaaaah bruh.

Ah, the good ol' "we" factor. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif

As discord has exploded in popularity this is something that I will seriously be giving attention to in due time. Probably start looking at in sometime in sept/october (don't hold me to that though).
