How Do I Get News on My Discord Server?

Are you looking to keep your Discord server members informed and up-to-date with the latest news? Look no further! In this tutorial, we will show you how to get news on your Discord server in a simple and efficient way.

Using RSS Feeds

If you want to automate the process of getting news updates, using RSS feeds is a great option. RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a web feed format that allows users to access updates from websites in a standardized way.

Step 1: Find an RSS Feed

First, you need to find an RSS feed that provides the news updates you want. Many websites offer RSS feeds for their articles or blog posts. You can usually find the RSS feed by looking for the orange RSS icon or searching for “RSS” on the website.

Step 2: Set Up a Bot

In order to fetch and display the news updates on your Discord server, you will need to set up a bot. Bots are automated users that can perform various tasks, including retrieving information from external sources.

To set up a bot, follow these steps:

  • Create a new application on the Discord Developer Portal.
  • Navigate to the “Bot” tab and click on “Add Bot”.
  • Copy the bot token for later use.
  • Add the bot to your Discord server by visiting this URL: (replace YOUR_BOT_CLIENT_ID with your actual bot’s client ID).

Step 3: Fetch and Display News Updates

Now that you have a bot set up, it’s time to write some code to fetch and display the news updates on your Discord server.

Here’s an example of how you can use a programming language like JavaScript to achieve this:

const Discord = require('discord.js');
const Parser = require('rss-parser');

const client = new Discord.Client();
const parser = new Parser();

client.on('ready', () => {
  console.log('Bot is ready!');

client.on('message', async (message) => {
  if (message.content === '!news') {
    const feed = await parser.parseURL('');

    feed.items.slice(0, 5).forEach((item) => {
      const embed = new Discord.MessageEmbed()


In this example, we are using the Discord.js library to interact with the Discord API and the RSS-Parser library to fetch and parse the RSS feed. The code listens for messages in the server, and when a user sends a message with “!news”, it fetches the latest news updates from the RSS feed and sends them as embedded messages to the channel.

Manually Sharing News Updates

If you prefer a more hands-on approach, you can manually share news updates on your Discord server. This method allows for more control over what gets shared and how it is presented.

Step 1: Copy News Article Link

When you come across a news article that you want to share, simply copy the link to the article.

Step 2: Create a New Channel or Choose an Existing One

Decide on the Discord channel where you want to share the news updates. You can either create a new channel specifically for news updates or choose an existing channel where it makes sense to discuss news topics.

Step 3: Share the News

In the chosen channel, type a brief description of the news update and paste the article link. This allows server members to easily access and discuss the news.

Remember, consistency is key when manually sharing news updates. Make sure to regularly find and share relevant articles to keep your server members informed.

In Conclusion

Getting news on your Discord server can be done through RSS feeds or by manually sharing updates. RSS feeds offer automation while manual sharing allows for more control and discussion. Choose the method that suits your needs best and keep your server members engaged with the latest news!
