Widgets are a cool, relatively new feature on Discord which makes it easier to do a number of things using the application. You can add these Discord widgets to your webpage for others to see. What they do with this widget is up to them. Others can view the information regarding your server through this widget, and also learn more about each member and what the server is like.
It is a useful little feature that makes it easier to recruit new people for your server, but the only problem is that it doesn’t always work as intended. Today, we’ll be discussing one of the main issues associated with the Discord widget feature in detail.
How to Fix Discord Widget Not Loading?
As mentioned, the widget feature can sometimes be a bit of a handful for users. In some cases, it doesn’t load at all. This means that it doesn’t set up on your webpage and that others can’t see it, meaning that the widget doesn’t work at all. If you’re facing a similar dilemma while trying to add a widget to a webpage, here’s what you should try to do.
- Enable the Server Widget
If you set up a widget for a specific server on your webpage for people to see, but the server itself doesn’t allow you to set widgets up, then the widget will not load at all. That’s because there is actually a setting for each server that you have to enable to make the widgets work.
This setting is generally disabled by default and needs to be enabled to get the loading of the widget, otherwise, they won’t load which also means that the feature won’t work on your webpage. Enable the feature and try again and it should work without any issues now.
- Adjust Widget Height
The size (or height) of the widget also affects whether or not it will work or not. If you set the height too high or too low, then you won’t be able to get it to load. This is a problem that many users have faced with the widget feature since it was released and it is definitely quite annoying. But if this is in fact the issue, all you have to do is adjust the widget’s height. Set it to normal-sized and then try to check if it loads and works this time around.
- Try a Different Browser
Sometimes, the browser that you’re using can also affect the functionality of the widget feature, and this could be happening to your right now. The browser can prevent the widget from loading which also prevents it from working.
That’s why it’s recommended that you try out another browser and check if it loads and works this time around. It has been reported that a lot of users were able to get the Discord widget feature to load after they tried it with another browser, and you should be able to do the same.
