Forum integration with 3rd party applications (Discord and Telegram)

Hi @DerLink, I’ve moved this request to the forum so it will stay on the radar.

As discussed 2 weeks ago, it would be cool to integrate the forum more into the other many islands we’ve created. Specifically this is about Discord and Telegram. This integration will allow information to flow easier to other islands and make it effortless to keep the movement up to date as a whole.

Let’s do Discord first. All that needs to be done on your side is to create a channel named “Forum feed” in “Community updates” and then click in the Discord “server” settings on Integrations then Webhooks. Then click Create Webhook. The rest I can configure on the forum side. :slight_smile: This will take only a minute of your time. Please send the webhook as a PM here on the forum (then I’ll receive an email notification, Discord doesn’t do that) since it’s sensitive.

More information about these steps with extra details can be found here: Set up Discord notifications using the discourse-chat-integration plugin - admins - Discourse Meta

After that we can do Telegram.

Hi @DerLink, we’re repeating the same conversations again I’m afraid :frowning:

It’s been a month now, it really is just a one minute job. If you’re really that busy, please consider delegating the task to someone else. Perhaps @Woody or @kublermdk?

And if not, do you have an ETA? Thanks!

Thanks @DerLink and @Woody for arranging the Discord webhook!

Next step is the Telegram integration. For that a token and chat-id is required, please PM me this token, since it’s sensitive, thanks!

I don’t want to be “that guy”, but this does make me “that guy” :smiley: It’s been 20 days again. For Telegram it should be the same, just a few minutes of following the guide. And in case a desktop client doesn’t work, I suppose the web interface will work just fine. But I don’t know how that is with Telegram, never used it. But with Discord the web interface does work fine. Just a friendly reminder.

Any ETA or other kind of update @DerLink or @Woody?
