RoleInvite

Note

These docs refers to the version 2.0.0. Make sure you’re under the good version by typing [p]cog update.

This is the guide for the roleinvite cog. Everything you need is here.

[p] is considered as your prefix.

Installation

To install the cog, first load the downloader cog, included in core Red.:

[p]load downloader

Then you will need to install the Laggron’s Dumb Cogs repository:

[p]repo add Laggrons-Dumb-Cogs https://github.com/retke/Laggrons-Dumb-Cogs v3

Finally, you can install the cog:

[p]cog install Laggrons-Dumb-Cogs roleinvite

Warning

The cog is not loaded by default. To load it, type this:

[p]load roleinvite

Usage

Before giving the commands list, I’d like to show you how the cog is working.

The cog works with what I call invite links. Each invite link is linked to one or more roles. This mean that, every time a new user join the server, if he used the invite A to join the server, he will get the list of roles linked to the invite A.

You can link many roles to multiple invites, so you can imagine something like “click here if you are an engineer, else click here if you’re an architect”, and make roleinvite give the engineer or architect roles.

You can also link roles to default or main autorole. If you link roles to the main autorole, the new member will get these roles if he joined with an unlinked invite. If you link roles to the default autorole, new users will always get these roles, whatever invite he used.

Here’s a schema for a better understanding:

Here’s the list of all commands of this cog.

inviteset

inviteset add

Syntax:

[p]roleinviteset add <invite|main|default> <role>

  • If default is given, the role will be linked to the default autorole.

You can link more roles by typing the command with the same argument.

Arguments

  • <invite> The object to link the role to.

    • If it is a Discord invite URL, the role will be linked to it.
    • If it is main, the role will be linked to the main autorole (role given if the invite used is not linked to any roles).
    • If it is default, the role will be linked to the default autorole (role always given, whatever invite the user used).
  • <role> The role to be linked. Please give the exact role name or the ID.

inviteset remove

Syntax:

[p]roleinviteset remove <invite|main|default> [role]

Description

Unlink a role from an autorole. If the role is not given, the entire autorole will be removed.

List all of the existing autoroles on the guild, with their linked roles.

inviteset enable

Note

If it was removed without your action, that means that the bot somehow lost its permissions. Make sure it has the good permissions and enable it again.

Frequently Asked Question

Note

Your question is not in the list or you got an unexcpected issue?

You should join the Discord server or post an issue on the repo.

Can I make it so the bot adds x roles if the invite used is unknown?

Yes, by using the main value instead of using a discord invite when creating a new invite link. See roleinviteset add command’s arguments for more informations.

Can I make it so the bot always adds x roles, regardless of the invite used?

Yes, by using the default value instead of using a discord invite when creating a new invite link. See roleinviteset add command’s arguments for more informations.

The bot suddenly stopped adding roles to the new members

The bot will automatically turn off the autorole system if he lose the Manage sever or the Add roles permissions, which are absolutely necessary for the cog.

If you added the permissions back, enable the autorole again with the command enable.

Some roles are not added to the new members

This can happens if the role hierarchy is modified after the roles got linked. Remember that a bot/member can only add roles that are below him in the role hierarchy.

Modify the role hirearchy and make sure all necessary roles are below the bot’s highest role. If it still doesn’t work, try to link the role again.
