Telegram Notifications Plugin (discourse-telegram-notifications)

Discourse Telegram Notifications Plugin

This plugin allows users to receive their notifications via a Telegram bot, allowing them to turn off email notifications and still keep up-to-date. :success:

You can “like” posts, and respond to them via the bot.

Here’s a quick demo video:

Before Starting

  • Your forum must be using HTTPS, and have force_https turned on
  • Your forum must be accessible to the internet, not only an internal network (in development, give ngrok a try).

Getting the plugin setup

  1. Install the plugin using the instructions here: How to install a plugin
  2. Create a telegram bot by talking to the BotFather (instructions here)
  3. Paste the “token” into the site setting “telegram access token”
  4. Tick “telegram notifications enabled”

I strongly recommend you use the BotFather’s /setjoingroups command to disable the bot being used for group chats. It is not designed for it, and risks leaking information that users are not supposed to be able to access (e.g. you don’t want private messages being sent to a group chat).

You can set the name/picture/description of your bot using the instructions here

For users to receive notifications

  1. Send a message to the bot, you’ll receive a message back that looks like

To get notifications for Discourse, enter the ‘Chat ID’ 1234567 in your user preferences

  1. Visit your Discourse user preferences, and paste the number in the Telegram Notifications box
  2. You should now receive notifications by telegram message!

Find out who’s using telegram for notifications

Here’s a query for the data explorer plugin:

SELECT user_id, updated_at, value from user_custom_fields
WHERE name = 'telegram_chat_id'

This is still a work in progress. I think the next task would be to improve the setup flow for the user, so they don't have to copy/paste numbers between telegram and the forum.

As always, suggestions and comments are very welcome :slight_smile:

Hello,
How do we sync everything chat (text and images) in group chat telegram with a topic (link topic) by comment?
Thank!

I have more a question:
Can we post a topic in a category(setup before), topic with text content, photo and tags to Discourse via Telegram, Slack . They sync chat automatic not forward content (Posting a transcript and setup to post to Discourse)
Thank!

You cannot. Two-way sync between chat and discourse is not an aim for this plugin (or for the chat-integration plugin)

You can use the chat-integration plugin to send notifications based on new Discourse topics. There is no way to create topics from chat (except for the ‘transcript’ feature you mentioned).

Hi @david

Can I setup Telegram Bot to Reply in one topic?

Example:

When I Post to Channel, Bot will create a Reply to a specific Topic?

No, that is not supported. This is only designed for individual users to receive their notifications via telegram.

How can I fix this error ?

Can you share what you see in the info tab of the log? Looks like that’s just the backtrace

It looks like your server is having trouble contacting https://api.telegram.org. Are you using a supported installation? Is your server inside a network which could be interfering with outgoing requests?

Hi @david , sorry for late reply.
Yes the site is accessible (redirects to Bots: An introduction for developers ).

Also getting this below error.

ActionView::MissingTemplate (Missing template discourse_telegram_notifications/telegram/hook, application/hook with {:locale=>[:en_US, :en], :formats=>[:html], :variants=>[], :handlers=>[:raw, :erb, :html, :builder, :ruby]}. Searched in:

On running openssl s_client -connect api.telegram.org:443 got below result.

@codinghorror Recently openssl version was changed in latest discourse docker container due to which this issue is arising. On host machine I tried using OpenSSL 1.1.1 for telegram api and it loads the certificate.

New bug: after changing topic’s tag the first message of that topic will be send to telegram as a notification. So every time you change a topic’s tag there will be a notification in telegram.

NOTE: The bug is active on 2.4.0.beta7 (06c2e28bbb). To activate the bug topic starter must create topic with tags, after that he must reply to that thread and topic starter’s message must be last in the topic. After that if topic starter will change the tag, then plugin will send notification which will include first post’s text.

So how to receive infinite notification with first message of the topic:

  1. Topic Starter must create a topic
  2. Topic Starter must reply to this topic
  3. Topic Starter must change the topic’s tag. And now every time he change the topic’s tag everyone who subscribed to this topic will receive a notification that will include first message of that topic.

If someone will reply after topic starter’s reply and topic starter will change the topic’s tag: then notification with first message will still arrive, but only once.

Please, fix that issue as I’m using Discourse as a notification platform. :slight_smile:

Do the users also receive the ‘infinite notifications’ in the Discourse user interface?

This plugin uses the same notification system as Discourse itself, so I would be surprised if this issue is specific to the telegram notifications.

Yes. When topic starter changes topic’s tag it shows up as a notification in Discourse. (only if topic starter is the last one who replied to this topic).

Can I disable it somehow or this is a bug? This bug/feature comes with 2.4.0.beta7 update.

By the way, after last update (87a298a59b) the infinite notifications while changing topic’s tag is gone. Now it comes only with one notification when tag is changed. But still, how to disable notification when changing tag? Notification comes like “reply notification” but it is not.

This notification was received after “fiss” as topic started changed the tag.

Do you have the tags set to “watching” in your user preferences?

I’ve checked. No. :slight_smile: All of my team just set “watching” in the category, but not for tags. There was no such trouble before an update by the way.

I get this error:

translation missing: vi.discourse_telegram_notifications.message.watching_first_post

So, i can’t get notification

The plugins isn’t translated into your language.

You can send a pull request with the translation here: https://github.com/davidtaylorhq/discourse-telegram-notifications/tree/master/config/locales
