How to Customize Discobot

Discobot may be customized to match your community’s persona (or look and feel). The admin user can edit all facets of Discobot. The Discobot is a user like any other user in your community, so you can change any aspect of the user profile the same as you would your profile.

Customizing the Discobot User:

  1. In Admin, select Users and select the user discobot avatar

  2. Go to the user profile, press the edit button on the avatar

  3. Select Preferences or you may select Visit this user’s preferences page to edit their profile:

Once in Preferences, you can change the following settings:

  1. Account

    • Name: Select the Edit button and change the name
    • Image: Select the Edit button and upload new Image.
    • When completed, select Save Changes button
  2. Profile

  3. Email

Changing the Discobot Welcome Message

  1. Select Messages

  2. Select Sent

  3. Select the Greetings message sent out that you would like to change

  4. Copy and Paste a part of the message, such as I’m only a robot

  5. Go into the Admin menu

  6. Select Customize and then Text Content

  7. Enter copied text into Search Window, when Greeting is diplayed select Edit

Update Greetings message and select Save Changes button

NOTE: only settings manually changed at this time will update.

please I would like to edit the auto reply “discobot” ?

How do ?


You can do this the same way you customise any text in Discourse. Go to /admin/customize/site_texts and search for a part of the message that you want to customise.

Is it possible to make a new conversation discobot with With members and make a new certificate for them ?

I am admin to an educational forum and I want to make a new conversation with a new certificate :slight_smile:


No, you cannot currently customise the full experience.

Is it possible to know the codes for messages such as %{title}

Excuse me for my many questions :slight_smile:


Questions are fine. :slight_smile:

You can reuse any existing variables in the message but you cannot add new ones.

Is it possible to define the existing variables if possible? :slight_smile:
