Discord Posts

Title is a little vague. However, there are a few Discord Bots that allow you to connect your forum software to Discord. That way, when a new forum post is created, it'll post it on discord. I have it setup on my Xenforo forums and it works great.

 

While this is IP.Board, I believe there are addons that can help achieve this.

 

Why? It'll help create more replies to threads being created by notifying in Discord.

It doesn't seem to hard to do. You can integrate Discord into the forums really easily without the need of an addon, but you can take that a step further with proper development.

 

Here is free source code for such integration. Please login or register to see this link.
 

I have an active IP.Board license, so I am going to mess around with this myself and make sure that it'd be what we are after. I'm still looking into connecting IP.Chat (or another chat software) to Discord. So basically you can possibly reverse talk from the forums to Discord or Discord to the forums. I think this will add more interaction on BHL and we won't have the problem of having Discord more active than on the site. New people that come on are looking for activeness, and I strongly believe this can and will help.

 

Like I said, I'll create a test website for this purpose and see how it all runs. Shouldn't be much more different than Xenforo's Discord integration.

Yup, that's what I found too.

 

I'll give it a go.

I don't want to blow up the current discord server until it's tested. But it looks like I can mark the Bot to be public, so we could simply add the bot without integration usernames/etc.

 Sounds good.

 

I'll be creating a development forum that'll be mainly for that Discord integration. You can fiddle with it there if you want until you know what it can do.

 

EDIT: Created the community. Synced threads to a Discord channel, synced bans from Discord to IP.B and vice versa. Also can sync roles. The only thing this doesn't do is hook the chat. There's something I am testing to do that.

 

EDIT2: There's a way to hook Discord chat into your forums. Meaning that you can chat to discord from the forums, or chat to the forums from Discord. I'm testing this heavily at the moment, but it's also going to be available for testing on my development website if you're interested. (Waiting for my hosting provider to upgrade my VPS, then I'll be doing this)
