If you want to add a welcoming touch to your Discord server, you can easily do so by adding a welcome message. A welcome message is a great way to greet new members and make them feel valued and included in your community. In this tutorial, we will learn how to add a welcome message to a Discord server using HTML formatting elements.
Step 1: Create a Welcome Message
To begin, let’s create the welcome message that will be displayed when new members join your Discord server. You can customize the message according to your preferences and the tone of your community.
Here is an example of a simple welcome message:
Welcome to our Discord server!
We are thrilled to have you join our community. Feel free to introduce yourself and get involved in the conversations. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask our friendly moderators.
Step 2: Open Your Discord Server Settings
Next, log in to your Discord account and navigate to the server where you want to add the welcome message. Click on the server name at the top left corner of the screen, and then select “Server Settings” from the drop-down menu.
Step 3: Access Server Templates
In the Server Settings menu, locate and click on the “Overview” tab on the left-hand side. Scroll down until you find the “Server Templates” section.
Step 4: Create a New Template
Click on the “Create Template” button in the Server Templates section. Give your template a name that reflects its purpose, such as “Welcome Template.”
Step 5: Edit Your Template
In this step, we will edit the template to include the welcome message. Under the “Overview” tab, you will find various options to customize your server settings.
Scroll down until you see the “Welcome Channel” setting. Click on the dropdown menu and select the channel where you want the welcome message to be displayed.
Once you have selected the channel, scroll down further until you find the “Description” field. This is where we will add our welcome message.
Step 6: Add HTML Formatting
To make our welcome message visually engaging, we will add HTML formatting elements. Open and close each element with their respective tags.
Here’s an example of how our welcome message would look with HTML formatting:
Welcome to our Discord server!
- We are thrilled to have you join our community.
- Feel free to introduce yourself and get involved in the conversations.
- If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask our friendly moderators.
You can experiment with different formatting elements such as italicizing certain parts of the message or adding subheaders using
tags to further enhance your welcome message.
Step 7: Save Your Template
After customizing your welcome message using HTML formatting, click on the “Save Template” button at the bottom right corner of the screen. Your template will now be saved and applied to your Discord server.
You have successfully added a visually engaging welcome message to your Discord server using HTML formatting elements. New members joining your server will now be greeted with a warm and inviting message, making them feel welcomed and encouraged to participate in your community.
Remember, you can always go back and edit your template if you want to make changes or update your welcome message.
