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.
@NixFifty is extremely friendly and this addon does everything I need it to do such as:
- Allow forum registration / login using Discord
- Add newly registered members to the Discord server (if they registered using Discord)
- Send announcement forum posts into a designated Discord channel
- Auto assign roles on Discord such as member roles and user group roles
(It does even more things but that's way more than what I need.)
If anything is up with the addon NixFifty is quick to respond and provide excellent 5-star support! :)
This add-on is mostly broken, which is ashame because NixFifty makes some decent add-ons when they work. Some users simply don't sync, others receive server errors although nothing is written to the error log.
Discord is a massively popular chat app, and this add-on allows pushing new thread and reports notifications via Discord. This is massively better than email notification, and the Discord app's alert setting are just so much better than native push notifications.
NixFifty's Discord Integration is the one I've settled with. I've used them all, and the other plugin's support is either lazy and doesn't care or makes you feel belittled for simple questions.
If you want a great Discord integration plugin for your Xen site I highly suggest this one. There's a few small quality of life edits that I've suggested like adding the user's Discord username automatically in the username field and editing the automatic post to Discord, but other than that it's probably the best one. I've fought for answers with the other Discord Integration plugin developers and NixFifty hasn't ever given me an issue.
The add-on itself is quite useful if you have the desire to control your discord through xenforo. Nice that it also syncs role directly rather than waiting on a cron to do it for you with the ability that it will not override your custom discord roles.
Great to have new threads notifications, but shame it lacks new replies in thread notifications. Overall, while being a great system I feel like it's also lacking in functions. Such as a 2-way role sync feature, which I might add I had to pay extra to for it to be included.
After fully testing the system, I wasn't fully satisfied with it and wanted to have a refund (with of course me removing all the source files) as their policy did did mention they have a "reasonable" refund policy (but also did mentioned the right to refuse it) as you can't really always test a system properly without you testing it to an extend to see if its the right product for you and the forums.
I was flat out refused a refund, even when I gave my reasoning. As such giving it a 3 star.
The discord add-on is great to a specific extend, don't get me wrong there. But I just felt like it wasn't complete (hence the refund), but flat out refusing the refund feels like a hit and run to me.
Works exactly as it's supposed to, no complaints! Had an issue in the beginning but it after a quick ticket I was able to get it resolved (was something on my end!). Overall, a really great addition to my Forums, I'm happy with it.
This plugin only syncs group changes made via the AdminCP when editing the user. We can't find a way to sync the groups when automated promotions happen. I reached out to the dev about this issue, however they stopped replying to my support ticket.
So it DOES sync groups if you go in and manually make the change, but doesn't appear to sync changes made outside of that.
