Discord Integration allows you to establish a connection and manage your Discord server from the comfort of the XenForo Admin Control Panel. This is a free upgrade if you already own an active license to the original Discord Integration.


Demo: Available here with auto-join, syncing, mirrored alerts and thread notifications enabled.

  • Allows for XenForo user groups to be synced with Discord server roles. Essentially this allows you to automate the giving and removing of Discord server roles based on the groups that a XenForo user is part of. Users can associate their Discord identities with their XenForo usernames to establish a sync.
  • Discord nicknames can also be updated to stay in sync with forum usernames.
  • New for XenForo 2.x: Allow the bot to show up as online and display a custom status message.
  • Manage your Discord instance from the ACP.
  • Allow your users to register and sign up via Discord.
  • Send alerts to connected users and channels via the ACP.
  • Automatically post links to threads from XenForo forums to defined Discord channels as soon as they're posted. The user who posted the thread, the thread title, a short snippet and a link to the thread are included in the message.
    • This is set on a per-forum basis allowing you to fine-tune what channels should get the notifications.
  • New for XenForo 2.x: Automatically post links to resources from XenForo Resource Manager to defined Discord channels as soon as they're posted. The user who posted the resource, the resource title, a short snippet and a link to the resource are included in the message.
    • This is set on a per-category basis allowing you to fine-tune what channels should get the notifications.
    • Resource updates will also be posted to the same channel.
  • Allow staff members with permission to 'promote' links to threads to Discord channels.
  • Allow users to receive watch notifications from forums and threads they specify (in addition to emails and alerts). They will receive these notifications privately from your configured bot. There are plans for future expansion with 1-to-1 communication with the bot.
  • New for XenForo 2.x: The bot can now send XenForo alerts and conversations straight to your Discord DMs. All types of alerts are supported out of the box with zero configuration required.
    • Users can opt-out of this behaviour by adjusting the appropriate setting within their Account Preferences area.
  • Support for Report Centre Essentials to add notifications for new open reports and when the total number of open reports reaches a certain threshold.
  • Users can be automatically added to your server when they connect their Discord account.
    • Conversely, they can be kicked from your server when they disconnect their Discord account.
A detailed installation guide is located here.

Allowing the bot to appear online:
This is a slightly more advanced feature that you'll need to setup yourselves. Eventually, I hope to expand this part of the add-on but until then, a rough set of steps can be found here.

Fantastic addon! Works as expected, no sync issues, includes a NodeJS bot which does wonders. Pretty quick and easy to setup!
Pretty straight forward to to set up hadn't got a chance to start testing the roles yet just got my new site up and running on xenforo's new cloud service and support is on par as I didn't have to wait long for any help.
I knew nothing about Discord, never used it, but my members wanted a place to chat. Got this add-on and was up and running with an integrated discord server and in no time. Easy Peasy!!
Awesome bot, easy to setup, easy to customize. Better than the first one I tried. Would highly recommend this one.
Awesome Discord integration that allows me to manage my community much better. I find it a must to have group sync between forum and discord.

Thumbs up for @NixFifty
Nix is great at what he does that's for damn sure! Made my life so much easier with this module. I had some issues at the beginning but Nix helped me through it all!
This is an excellent alternative to the other discord addon here on XF; it's actively maintained, and the author encourages suggestions for new features. By associating discord accounts with xf accounts this addon keeps users acting in accordance with my website rules and saves me a lot of headache!
Great addon! Had an issue that I couldn't figure out, contact support and NixFifty was there every step of the way. I highly recommend this add-on.
Arguably the better Discord integration add-on. For one, support is actually polite, suggestions are actually considered, and you're not treated as a nuisance.

The add-on itself offers a lot of functionality that makes integrating it into a larger Discord simple, and allows for more granular control. It doesn't have a lot of unnecessary fluff that just bloats the add-on, and is overall just a very solid option.
Great developer, great add-on. Worth all the pennies and I would buy (and will buy) again!

We have only recently made the switch from Teamspeak to Discord and with the help of this add-on been able to grow our RaceDepartment discord channel from zero to 30,000 plus members since June of this year.

Shortcut confirmed :)
