I have been making a discord bot and wanted to make it send a message to a specific "Welcome" channel. Unfortunately, I have been unable to do so. I tried this.
const welcomeChannel = bot.channels.get("name", "welcome") welcomeChannel.sendMessage("Welcome\n"+member.user.username);
However in this "welcomeChannel is undefined".
I tried using
const welcomeChannel = bot.channels.get("id", "18NUMBERIDHERE") welcomeChannel.sendMessage("Welcome\n"+member.user.username);
but this is still undefined, strangely
You should use the channnel id instead of it's name.
How to get the channel id of a channel:
Open up your Discord Settings
Developer Mode (And close the Discord settings)
Right click on your desired channel
Now there's an option
Copy ID to copy the channel id
Also checkout the discord.js documentation for (channel) collections
Furthermore your approach won't work because
.get wants a channel id (see the linked documentation above). In case you REALLY want to get an channel by its name, use
.find instead for that.
This is however a really bad idea in case your bot runs on more than one server since channel names can now occur multiple times.
You can also use
Your error could come from the fact that you're using
bot.channels.get(), which isn't the best idea, because discord.js isn't very friendly when it comes to using
.send() on multiple items.
Instead, try to use
member.guild.channels.find("name", "channel").send();, if possible. If this is in the
client.on("message"), then simply use
Sidenote: My memory is mixed up, so if that doesn't work, try
.get() instead of
I tried a lot with the same error, and that's how I fixed it. I used client as my Client().
