One of the best parts of having your own Discord server is that you can add tons of cool, interesting and hilarious bots that make the experience so much fun. 

From catching, training, and battling Pokémon with your friends, display memes that make your miserable life a little better or even play games or gambling on your server. There’s a bot for just about everything. 

In this simple step-by-step guide, I’ll guide you on how to add bots to your Discord server in less than the time you take to finish that pack of Doritos. 🤨

Help! How do I create and set up a Discord server?

Creating and setting up a Discord server is free and super simple to set up. If you want to know how simple it is, well, there are 9-year-olds out there who set up Minecraft Discord servers and if they can do it, you can too.  All you have to do really is just jump onto your Windows, Mac, iOS or Android device (or Linux for that matter), install Discord, and then simply register for Discord and log in to your Discord account. 

Once you’ve logged in, click on the blue Create a Server button when prompted.

If you do not see this popup and you’ve already registered a Discord account, then simply just click on the + icon and then click on the Create a Server button when prompted.

Finally hit Create and Voila! You’re now a proud owner of a new Discord server.

Now let’s dive right into adding our bot(s) into our new Discord server. 

 

 

How to Add Bots to Discord Server: 5 Steps

 

Step 1:  First and foremost, you’ll need to have a bot that you want to add to your Discord server. 

My three favorite ways to look for bots are:

  1. DiscordBots.org (my go-to method)
  2. Carbonitex.net (another great repository)
  3. GitHub.com/discord-bot (where every bot in existence is born)

 

 

Step 2:  Once you’ve found the bot of your liking, it’s time to add it to your server. For the purposes of this guide, I’m going to be adding Dyno, a little bot that does everything from moderating to music playing and tons more. I’ll be adding Dyno from my go-to DiscordBots.org. Simply click on the Invite button to add Dyno (or any bot of your liking) to your Discord.

Step 3:  You should see that Discord will ask you now to choose which server that you want to add the bot into. Choose the server and then click Authorize. Don’t worry about choosing which “permissions” are required as you can change this later.

That’s about it!

You’ll be brought to your Discord server admin page to manage how you want your new bot to work with your server. I will be writing up guides on how you can configure various bots so that you can get the most out of them. So keep on the lookout for those pieces of content here on Saint in the coming weeks. 🙂

 

How do you add bots from GitHub to Discord server?

If you found a cool-looking bot on GitHub and you decided to add it to a server, then it’s pretty simple to do so. All you really need is a unique ID (called a Client ID) of the bot that you’re trying to add to your server. 

Here are the steps on how to add bots from GitHub to Discord server:

Step 1:  Go ahead open up your search browser (Google, Safari, Firefox, etc.) and copy-paste the following link into it:

https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=%3cBot_Client_ID%3e&scope=bot&permissions=0

 

Step 2:  Now, of course, you’ll see an error on the browser if you straight up copy-paste and search the link above because you’ve not added the unique ID of the bot that you’re trying to add to your server into the link. Hence, locate the ID of the bot (this is usually found on the GitHub description page for the Discord bot), replace the part where it says “Bot_Client_ID” with the actual client ID of the bot you’re trying to add.

Step 3:  Finally, once you’ve authorized everything, you’re done! 🙂
