Dad Bot installation and commands guide

How to install Dad Bot to your Discord server

To find Dad Bot, first, go to its page. A big red Invite button will be in the top right portion of the page. This will open a new tab where you can select any server that you have management permissions for.

After selecting the server, you will go over the list of permissions for which the bot will have authorization. For full functionality, have all boxes checked.

Full Dad Bot command list

To use a Dad Bot command, type d![command]. For example, d!dadjoke will have the bot post a random pun. Be sure not to capitalize anything when attempting to use a command. Here is the full list of commands.

  • help – displays the help menu that includes commands and other information. Can use the emoji to move through pages, and it will timeout after a little bit of inactivity.
  • patreon – opens the Patreon page of Dad Bot’s creator.
  • creatorinfo – shows information for Dad Bot’s creator.
