Installation

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest way — WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the plugin:

  • Log in to your WordPress dashboard
  • Navigate to the Plugins menu, and click “Add New”
  • In the search field type “wptelegram-widget” and hit Enter
  • Locate the plugin in the list of search results
  • Click on “Install Now” and wait for the installation to complete
  • Click on “Activate”

Manual installation

Manual installation method requires downloading the plugin and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The official WordPress documentation contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we still recommend you back up your site.

FAQ

How to create a Telegram Bot

How do I create a bot?.

Why Legacy Widget shows nothing?

Legacy Widget does not show the old messages.

You need to post something new into the group/channel and wait for 5 minutes for the messages to appear.

If you are too impatient to wait for the results, open the URL under Tip!πŸ’‘ (below the instructions) in your browser.

Note: Please ensure to follow the instructions given on the settings page correctly.

Why do I see my own website in the widget?

It means that there is something wrong with the permalinks on your website.

Simply goto wp-admin > Settings > Permalinks and just Save Changes.

That should fix it. If it doesn’t, please let us know at @WPTelegramSupport.

Wow, that was super easy and quick. Took me less than 10 minutes from downloading the plugin to a perfectly working widget in the sidebar on my site. Not a single issue encountered. Congratulations to the developer of this mighty plugin. Where can I support your great work?The only thing I miss is a button to quickly move [back] to the latest post. I never know which way to scroll.

The developer coded an additional feature for me and went above and beyond. Can not recommend the plugin and the support that comes with it enough.
