Discord is a popular communication platform used by gamers, communities, and businesses alike. It allows users to create servers and interact with each other through text, voice, and video channels.
One feature that can be particularly useful for server owners is the ability to add news updates to their Discord server. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can add news to your Discord server to keep your members informed and engaged.
Step 1: Open Discord and navigate to the server where you want to add news updates. Make sure you have the necessary permissions to manage the server’s settings.
Step 2: Click on the “Settings” icon at the bottom left corner of the screen. It looks like a gear.
Step 3: In the settings menu, select the “Server Settings” option. This will open a new window with various server settings.
Step 4: On the left side of the window, click on the “Overview” tab. This will display general information about your server.
Adding News Channels
Adding news updates to your Discord server is as simple as creating a dedicated channel for it. This way, you can keep all your news posts organized in one place.
Step 5: Scroll down to find the “Text Channels” section and click on the “+” button next to it. This will open a pop-up window where you can create a new channel.
Step 6: In the pop-up window, enter a name for your news channel in the “Channel Name” field. You can choose any name that suits your preference, such as “#news”, “#announcements”, or something similar.
Step 7: Optionally, you can add a description for your news channel in the “Channel Topic” field. This can be a brief description of the type of news you will be posting in this channel.
Step 8: Once you have entered the necessary information, click on the “Create Channel” button to create your news channel.
Posting News Updates
Now that you have a dedicated news channel, you can start posting your news updates to keep your members informed.
Step 9: In Discord, navigate to the server where you created your news channel.
Step 10: Click on the “+” button next to the news channel name. This will open a text input field where you can type your news update.
Step 11: Type your news update in the text input field. You can include any relevant information, announcements, or updates that you want to share with your server members.
- TIP: To make your news update stand out, consider using formatting options like bold, italic, or underline. You can do this by surrounding the text with appropriate HTML tags.
- TIP: If you have a lot of information to share, consider breaking it down into bullet points using an unordered list (
- ) and list items (
- ). This makes it easier for members to read and digest the information.
Step 12: Once you have written your news update, press Enter or click on the “Send” button to post it in the news channel.
Making News Channels Read-Only
To ensure that only authorized users can post in your news channel and maintain its integrity, you may want to make it read-only for regular members.
Step 13: In Discord, navigate to the server where your news channel is located.
Step 14: Right-click on the news channel name in the left sidebar and select “Edit Channel” from the context menu.
Step 15: In the channel settings window, click on the “Permissions” tab.
Step 16: Scroll down to find the “Send Messages” permission and click on the “X” button next to it. This will remove the permission to send messages for all regular members.
Step 17: Optionally, you can grant specific users or roles the permission to send messages in the news channel by clicking on the “+” button and selecting the desired users or roles from the list.
TIP: Remember to save your changes by clicking on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the window.
