    we had the same issue , then all of a sudden it worked .. I don't remember the details , but we tested the kick option and the person I kicked still could see things and use the other server we have .. but she could not log into our main server and get my re-invite to work . then about half hour later it worked.so I think its a bug , just give it some time .

    PS what was odd was when she couldn't get back in the server I was still able to promote her to admin powers , very odd .

    @Canton Sounds like she might have been kicked from a different server, or something else. If you can recreate this, let me know and I'll investigate.

    she was admin like I am but we are not the main admin{owner} , we was new to Discord and wanted to test the features , she said drop my rank to member and kick me so we can see if it works , not a ban but just a kick .and the kick worked .lol a little to well . we tried everything she even tried redoing a ID setup but she kept getting a error of something , it was a while ago so I can not remember everything .We both are not new to voice programs we was admins on ventrilo also . the odd thing was i could still rank her up and down and all that and see her in the list to the right but not in the lobby . I think she said she couldn't see herself in the list.
    then we tried another server we made and she was there no problem . then after trying few things and talking ..bango she showed in the lobby about hour later in the first server and then everything was fine . I can not remember when we was talking if it was on discord or we went to skype , but I think she still able to talk via discord . very odd

    I made a post the time it happened here in forums maybe looking back you will see the details @
    Cilantrelle.. Thanks

    I remember .. when she got kicked we did go to skype till we got discord to work . so no it did DC her from discord via talk from that server .

    @
    Cilantrelle and sorry folks for the spam , but I know the devs probably want to get this sorted .

    I did talk to the person I test kicked , she has a good memory and said pretty much what I said . we feel no actions we took made it work . Its almost like the kick has a ban of a hour maybe then it makes it were re invite can work again, thats my only logical thing I can think of . Good luck
    Cilantrelle and the dev team , ps great program over all great features and not having to self host is a bonus .

    Howdy Folks ..
    I do not know if vidoe links is allowed here .. I have a ...YouTube gaming /Pc channel . and I did one on voice programs , and talked highly about Discord .. as the newly speak gaming /social tool .. I do not cover anything about the technical side or Bugs etc , just of Discord being one of the free hosting platform tools out there .As its main yaaaa hoo over most apps of this type .

    If this is illegal in forum please accept my apologize and detach this message from the forums ..no hard feelings would Not arise from such actions . business is business .

    usually you would not have the privileges to post video links if a site is against such nature .. so lets see.

    I can not join a channel despite having an invite. I get a message saying it has either expired or invalid.
    Please has anyone got any idea what the problem can be?

    @Miss Demeanor Have the server owner / mod create a never-expiring invite and send it to you that way.

    Hey guys I just wanted to chime in here on something that I found out yesterday. I was having issues with people saying the invites were expired, even though I set them to never expire and unlimited uses. After trying it myself, I figured out what they were doing. Say the invite code is Xu3BzDEH. If you type this in as xu3bzdeh, it will say it's expired. The code must match exactly or it will just say expired. It might be a good idea to reply with something such as, "This is an invalid code, please check to ensure it is entered exactly as it was generated."

    Just my .02 here, after seeing multiple others say they have similar problems, and I have yet to see someone say this could be it.

    Hi! I'm just using mobile so I don't know if there's a huge difference when compared to desktop. I get the basic about server and channels, but the problem is, I don't have a friend! LOL! How can I add a friend? There seems no option of "search for random people" or whatever. I'm just a newbie btw. Hoping for a kind response.

    @Skyline You'll need to find a friend (or invite them!) on Discord and add them in your friends list, or invite them to your server.

    I kicked my friend and after that everytime someone sends an invite to him to that group it sais ''Invite expired'' for him, but I could invite him to my other group and he is not banned.

    @KlockanSju there may be someone on the ban list that shares their IP. Double check there and make sure it's not the case.

    how do you invite someone to the entire server with one link?

  • Avatar
    Cilantrelle

    @spacelynx any invite you give someone (regardless of the channel generated) should give them access to the rest of the server, as long as the @everyone role has permissions.

    @cilantrelle would it be possible to have invites automatically have a set role/permission set up?

    I.e: i invite people through link a (which is for game a) which needs role a to join/read a certain group - and not everything - on the server.

    Now there's the 'general' invite but mods or admins still need to assign certain roles to people for them to not snoop around in places they're not supposed to.. :)

    @[email protected]_NL Not yet, though I think that idea is popular over at feedback.discordapp.com. Check it out & upvote it there!

    This doesn't help me link channels in dms.

    @Zashiki Do you mean sending channel invite link to other users in DMs? If those invite links that you are sending in DMs aren't working, could you send a message to [email protected] with all the details of the invite issue?

    How do I set it so that certain roles can only create 30 min links, because I don't want an abundance of infinite invites to the server, but I still want people to be able to create invites?

    ellolizard

    @aragon1416 It's currently not a feature to limit what kind of invites people can create, but if you would like to see changed to the permission for creating invites, you can help vote it up at https://feedback.discordapp.com/!

    I've been making my links expire after one year and now, all of a sudden, I am getting `response: {"max_age": ["int value should be less than 86400."]}`

    This is a change that will completely break my app. What's the deal?

    This article was very helpful! Our server was recently raided because someone was able to get a perma link, so I disabled instant invites for everybody and revoked all of the invite links. Thank you so much! Our server is protected now and we no longer have to worry about raids. For now on we will only send invites to trusted people via DMs if they want access to the server.
