Installation

After you install plugin via WordPress plugin installer or upload and activate it manually, you have to set it up.

  1. Create a bot
    First of all, you need to create a bot, which will be used to interact with the user. If you already have a bot, you will need a token of existing bot.
    To create a new bot, you will need to interact with BotFather – https://t.me/BotFather.

  2. User ID
    You need to know ID of a user who will be receiving messages. It is possible either using the https://t.me/ShowJsonBot, or sending message to your bot, then going to URL https://api.telegram.org/botbot_token/getUpdates (replace with your token). In both cases you will see a JSON object, where the ‘chat’ property will have id inside of it – this will be the user unique identifier.

  3. Common settings
    Insert collected data in plugin settings in Settings > Telegram Connector
    You can also set proxy server parameters, if you have problems with connecting to Telegram servers.

  4. Form Settings
    In Contact Form you can override common settings and add message template, bot and user, who will receive message from form.
