Your First Bot
Are you new to BotGhost or did you forget how you can create a BotGhost bot? Take a look at the video or steps below to get all the information you need!
You can watch the official YouTube video here.
2. Give your application a name and click Create. This will create the application and take you to a new app management screen.
3. On the left sidebar, select the Bot tab. Click Add Bot on this screen. Confirm the message popup, and you're done! You're one step away from creating your first BotGhost bot!
4. Once your bot has been created, you will notice a new page for your bot. Here, you can edit everything about your bot, including its name, profile picture, about me, and more. Under the username of the bot, you will see a "token" section. Click Reset Token, this will allow you to get the bots token. This is needed for future steps, so it is best to keep the code to the side for now. Ensure you do not lose it, nor give it to anyone else. If you do lose your token, or it gets leaked, ensure you click Reset Token immediately.
Click "Reset Token"
Your bot token will appear. Ensure you do not lose this.
Intents are required by some BotGhost modules. Intents allow us to choose which events their bot receives based on the data it needs to function, so it is best to enable the intents ahead of time to avoid future errors. After you've created your bot, scroll down to the intents area of the page and enable all three intents: presence, server members, and message content.
Great! You've successfully created your Discord bot, now it is time to turn it online and function. Most bots are required to be coded from scratch, although with BotGhost, you can do this without coding. By doing the following steps, you will be able to connect your bot with BotGhost, turn it online, and run commands.
2. Once clicked, it will ask you to log into your Discord account to connect. This will be considered your "BotGhost account." Click Authorize to access the dashboard.
This does not give access to your account, it is safe.
3. Once logged into BotGhost with your Discord account, you will view a page to add your bot token. The bot token is the "key" which allows you, or anyone else to access and control your bot. BotGhost requires the token of your bot to access it and make it function. If you do not have your token, review Step 1, part 4 again. Input the bots token in the Bot Token section.
4. Congratulations! You've successfully created your first BotGhost bot! In the dashboard, you can configure your bot however you wish. Each module serves a purpose such as moderation, leveling, and logging. Take a look around and get a feel for it; it may take some getting used to, but once you do, creating and editing your very own bot will be easier than ever!
