How to Add Bots to Discord Server
Though adding bots to your Discord server is not that tough, for newbies, it might be difficult. First of all, you will need admin access to the server you want to add bots. If you already have admin privileges and can see ‘Manage Server’ option in your dashboard, you can proceed. Also, different bots are made to be configured in different ways. Some will require you to be logged in to the server through your browser as well as the client, others will not. So, you will have to manually check which bot is working in which way.
If you have all the permissions and decided which bot you want to add to your Discord server, follow the steps below:
- First of all, visit Discord website and log in.
- Go to your profile, find General Permissions and check that Manage Server is enabled.
- Now, depending upon from where you are looking for bots, you can click on Add Bot to Server or Invite bot option.
- Select your server from the dropdown menu and authorize the bot in the popup window that will appear.
- Finally, open your discord server and find the new bot in the sidebar.
This is the easiest method of adding bots to your Discord server. I have tested this method with a few bots just to verify if it’s working now or not. If you are an advanced user, you can also go for URL method which requires client id of the bot. However, I will recommend you to stick with the above method.
