Title: Post to Discord
Post by: cedgil on February 05, 2018, 03:08:18 PM
Not quite sure this is the right place, anyway, ad I ould lihe SMF to interact with Discord, I guess it might be.

A long time ago, I has SMF to post in a Simpleportal shoutbox with this code in post.php :
Code: [Select]
/////////////////////////////////////
// Post new subjects to shoutbox 1 //
/////////////////////////////////////
global $user_info, $board, $scripturl, $boardName, $topic;

$smcFunc['db_insert']('',
'{db_prefix}sp_shouts',
array(
'id_shoutbox' => 'int',
'id_member' => 'int',
'member_name' => 'string',
'log_time' => 'int',
'body' => 'string',
),
array(
1,
$user_info['id'],
$user_info['name'],
time(),
'[color=red][i]a posté nouveau sujet: [url='.$scripturl . '?topic=' . $topic . '.new#new'.']'.html_entity_decode($_POST['subject']).'[/url][/i][/color]',
),
array('id_shout')
);
////////////////////////////////////////////
// End of post new subjects to shoutbox 1 //
////////////////////////////////////////////

As I want to my forum to interact closely with Discord, I'd like to do the same thing : whenever there's a new post on the forum, I want it to be announced on Discord. Yet, I didn't manage to have it work, whatever I try.

Here's is the best help I have found is (magazine.gaiscioch.com/guides/posting_to_discord_using_php_and_webhooks.html) :

The first part of this script is a function that will handle posting the data to your discord.
Code: [Select]
<?PHP
function discordmsg($msg, $webhook) {
  if($webhook != "") {
    $ch = curl_init($webhook);
    $msg = "payload_json=" . urlencode(json_encode($msg))."";
   
    if(isset($ch)) {
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $msg);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
      $result = curl_exec($ch);
      curl_close($ch);
      return $result;
    }
  }
}
?>

The next part is the actual action and message you wish to send.
Code: [Select]
<?PHP
// URL FROM DISCORD WEBHOOK SETUP
$webhook = "https://discordapp.com/api/webhooks/xxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxx";
$msg = json_decode('
{
    "username":"BOTNAME",
    "content":"The message the BOTNAME posts.",
    "embeds": [{
        "title":"The Link Title",
        "description":"The Link Description",
        "url":"https://www.thelinkurl.com/",
        "color":DECIMALCOLORCODE,
        "author":{
            "name":"Site Name",
            "url":"https://www.sitelink.com/",
            "icon_url":"URLTOIMG"
        },
        "fields":[
            {
                "name":"LISTITEM1",
                "value":"LISTVALUE1",
                "inline":true
            },
            {
                "name":"LISTITEM2",
                "value":"LISTVALUE2",
                "inline":true
            },
            {
                "name":"LISTITEM3",
                "value":"LISTVALUE3",
                "inline":true
            }]
    }]
}
', true);
 ?>

Lastly there's the call to fire the script.
Code: [Select]
<?PHP
discordmsg($msg, $webhook); // SENDS MESSAGE TO DISCORD
?>

Could anyone help me with getting it to work? Thanks in advance for any help.

Perhaps try to see how similar stuff has been made for other platforms like Twitter?
For example there's this SimpleTwitter (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2982)

I use the RSS bot to do this.

downloaded, Installed, Used, Awesome. I have 1 request could it send shoutbox messages to discord? . Because if it did this would be the cherry on top of the cake :)

That would have to be custom built since the shoutbox is not part of SMF by default.
