How Do I Add a Bio to My Discord Server?


Heather Bennett

Adding a bio to your Discord server can provide important information about the purpose, rules, or any other details that you want your members or visitors to know. It’s a great way to create a welcoming and organized community. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can easily add a bio to your Discord server using HTML styling elements.

Step 1: Create a Text Channel

To add a bio to your Discord server, you need to create a text channel dedicated specifically for that purpose. This will allow you to have a designated space where you can share important information with your members.


  1. Open Discord and navigate to your server.
  2. Click on the ‘+’ button next to the channel list on the left-hand side.
  3. Select ‘Create Channel’ from the dropdown menu.
  4. Choose ‘Text Channel’ as the channel type.
  5. Name the channel something like ‘Bio’ or ‘Server Information.’
  6. Click on ‘Create Channel’ to finish creating the text channel.

Step 2: Add Content to the Bio Channel

Now that you have created a text channel for your bio, it’s time to add content to it. This is where you can include all the relevant information that you want your members or visitors to see when they join your Discord server.


  1. Navigate to the newly created text channel (e.g., ‘Bio’ or ‘Server Information’).
  2. In the message input box at the bottom, start typing out your bio content.
    • Bold Text: To make a specific part of the text bold, wrap it with the tag. For example, Welcome to our Discord server!
    • Underlined Text: To underline a specific part of the text, wrap it with the tag. For example, Please read the rules before proceeding.
  3. You can also use lists to organize your information more effectively:
    • Rules:

      1. No spamming: Please refrain from sending unsolicited messages or advertisements.
      2. Respect others: Treat everyone with kindness and respect.
      3. No NSFW content: Keep all content within appropriate limits.
    • Contact Information:

      • Email:
      • Twitter: @example
      • Website:

Step 3: Pin the Bio Message

To ensure that your bio message is easily accessible to all members and new visitors, you can pin it to the channel. This will keep it at the top of the channel’s message list, making it impossible for anyone to miss.


  1. Hover over your bio message in the text channel.
    • Hover over message

    <Pin message

  2. Click on the three dots that appear on the right side of the message.
  3. Select ‘Pin’ from the dropdown menu.

And there you have it! You have successfully added a bio to your Discord server using HTML styling elements.

Your members and visitors will now be able to see important information about your server, rules, contact details, and more. Remember to update your bio whenever necessary to keep everyone informed.
