How can I add my discord to the footer social links?

Recommended Posts

In '/classes/gui.class.php', there is a hook offered at line 1648 that provides an easy way to add Social Links.

You would create the Code Snippet in admin.

In admin, Manage Hooks, Code Snippets tab, click the Add Snippet link.

The next page will include a form at the bottom of the list.

Enabled: checked

Execution Order: 99
Description: Adds a custom social link to the list.
Trigger: class.gui.display_social

PHP Code:
  $vars[] = array(
  'url'  => 'http://www.discord.com/user/', // Put the complete URL here
  'name' => 'Discord', // Put the name of the social media platform here
  'icon' => 'discord' // assuming it exists

Save the snippet.

Here is a site that has Discord SVG icons.


We will need to figure out which icon to use, and how to add it to the skin's /images/icon-sprites.svg file.

Thanks B, it would seem that I may not be able to do what I want anyway. I have yet to find a way to provide a direct link to be able to DM me on Discord unless you are a Discord member, or something like that.

So I guess this will not be resolved despite your awesome help and example. On the bright side, I did learn a little more :)

Is there a way to configure your Discord account to recognize a trusted email address, such that this email arriving to your account will get accepted as a DM message?

If so, the Contact Us page can be coded to send messages from this email account to be accepted by your Discord account.

I am not sure if that can be done or not. But I don't think we could have a chat conversation that way. Maybe the simplest thing is to just put my Discord info up static. then people could at least get me that way if they wanted.

I will consider the invite link to join the server, but they are not my servers so I am not certain that would be ok. I will have to ask the admins first.

Again thanks for the help.
