Configurations

Customize FredBoat for your server

Configurations

FredBoat supports a few options when it comes to customizing its behavior in your server. You must have admin permissions to change any of these settings.

The ;;lang command

Want to use FredBoat in your native language? Server admins can set the language of FredBoat in their server. Say, for instance, you want to change the language to French:

;;lang fr_FR

Run the ;;lang command with no arguments to get a full list of supported languages. All translations are crowdsourced and we could really use some help bringing FredBoat to the world!

The ;;config command

This command allows you to change a couple server specific settings for the bot. Running the ;;config command without args should show you something like this:

track_announce = false

auto_resume = false

If you want FredBoat to start announcing new tracks being played, you can enable that feature with:

;;config track_announce true

If you want to get the bot to unpause when someone joins the voice chat, you can change this setting:

;;config auto_resume true

The ;;prefix command

This command allows changing and viewing the prefix.

Running ;;prefix without any args should show you something like this(output may vary based on language and prefix):

The prefix for this guild is ;;

You can show the prefix anytime again by mentioning me.

If you want to set a prefix, you may do so by running:

;;prefix

If you wish for FredBoat to not necessitate a prefix for executing commands, you may do so by running:

;;prefix no_prefix

To reset the prefix to the default one, say:

prefix reset

OR

@FredBoat prefix reset

If you cannot remember or do not know the prefix for FredBoat in a server, just mentioning FredBoat will show you the prefix. Additionally, you can mention FredBoat and follow that with a command to execute that command.

The ;;modules command

FredBoat's main focus is delivering music to your server, but it also packs additional command modules .You can disable and enable those with the ;;modules command.

Show the current status of modules:

;;modules

Disable a command module, for example Fun:

;;modules disable Fun

Enabling/disabling automatic deletion of ;;play requests

If FredBoat has permission to 'Manage Messages' in the channel settings, it will automatically delete any valid ;;play requests. If you prefer to keep the messages, you can just disable this bot's 'Manage Messages' permission.

Limiting access to text and voice channels

To restrict FredBoat from receiving commands from a certain text channel, simply revoke the bot's permission to "Send Messages" in that channel. FredBoat will only accept commands from a channel it can write to. Likewise, if you do not want FredBoat to join certain voice channels, take away its permission to "Connect."
