Tags

Overview

This feature allows you to set up a variety of "tags" that users can list and use to output pre-determined strings of text. This is useful for creating public FAQ responses without making a bunch of Custom Commands. Also, you can configure tags to be modified by different permission levels, unlike Custom Commands which can only be modified by server admins. The different permission tiers are listed below:
  • Manage Own: Admins - Manage All: Admins
    • Only administrators can manage tags. (Default behavior)
  • Manage Own: Mods - Manage All: Admins
    • Moderators can manage their own tags, administrators can manage all tags
  • Manage Own: Mods - Manage All: Mods
    • Moderators can manage every tag, regardless of who created it.
  • Manage Own: Users - Manage All: Admins
    • Users can manage their own tags, administrators can manage all tags
  • Manage Own: Users - Manage All: Mods
    • Users can manage their own tags, moderators can manage all tags
  • Manage Own: Users - Manage All: Users
    • Any user can manage every tag, regardless of who created it.
Note: These permissions only affect creating, deleting, and modifying tags. ALL users will be able to USE every tag regardless of who created the tag.

Create/Manage Tags (Bot/In-Discord)

You can manage and list tags using the following commands:
  • To list all commands simply type /tags or /tags list.
  • To create a tag type /tags create <name> <response>.
  • To modify a tag type /tags edit <name> <response>.
  • To delete a tag just type /tags delete <name>.
To use a tag simply type /tag <name>.

Limitations/Restrictions

  • You can't have duplicate tags with the same name
  • Tags are also limited to Discord's message character limit
  • Messages sent by bots or webhooks will be ignored
  • @User, @Role and @Everyone/@Here mentions are completely disabled in tags
Note: Tag names CAN contain spaces, but you can only create/modify tags with spaces via the web dashboard.

Using Emoji/Emotes in Tags

Emoji/Emotes CAN be used in Tags. However, it requires slightly more work due to how discord parses emotes. Normally in Discord, you could just type :lel: or :smile: to get an emote, however in Cakey Bot, neither of these will work. In order to get valid emojis you have to send the emojis in discord but place a backward slash in front of it to get the emote's full ID. Like so: \:lel: or \:smile: which will produce these results: <:lel:408424717217693717> or for Unicode emoji: 😄 . Once you have the full emoji id or the raw Unicode output, you can paste these into Cakey Bot's web dashboard and they should work as long as Cakey Bot is in a server that has that custom emote in it.
It is worth noting that Cakey Bot can use emojis in between servers (similar to nitro users). So if you have an emoji in Server #1, you can use that emoji in a custom command in Server #2 if Cakey bot is in both of those servers.

Using Images in Tags

To use images in responses, you can simply just type the image URL/link like you would in a normal message. If you have the file on your local machine/PC but no URL/link, you can upload it to an image hosting website (such as Imgur) and paste the URL they provide into the response. Cakey Bot should automatically embed the image in Discord's client if it's a valid URL/image.
