How to create a Reddit webhook?

What is Reddit?

Reddit is a social news website that allows members (“Redditors”) To post threads by either posting a link, text post or a photo post. Users are also able to upvote other users posts if they like it or downvote if they disagree

Reddit was founded on the 23rd June 2005 by Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman

How do I create a webhook so I get notified when someone makes a new post?

Firstly you will need to have mee6 in your server If you do not know what mee6 is you can read one of my other blog posts about it Here

Now you will need to go to the bots dashboard Here and select the server you wish to create the webhook on

Scroll down until you find the plugin called Reddit and enable it

Now you will have to choose a channel for the bot to post in. For this, I created a new channel called #socialfeed and used that channel If prompted allow the bot to create a webhook

Now click on the add subreddit button and add the subreddit you want the bot to monitor

Click save and next time someone posts in that subreddit mee6 will post a message
