Okay, let me explain.

The main issue I have with forums is the notification system. In few days it can overflow your email inbox (and sometimes mail inbox has so much traffic that email notifications are pass without being seen).

A possible fix to that situation might be to get notifications via Telegram [size=78%]https://telegram.org/[/size]. Other forums, as phpBB own his TelegramBot that notifies you when someone has replied your post.
I think something like that would be very useful, and not hard to implement via WebHook.

Thank your for your help.

Possibly I have done it for discord but for topics and posts.

Is that what you are looking for? To get alerted to new topics and posts via Telegram?

Thank you for your quick response!

Yes, that was exactly what I ment. I have tried the Autopost Integrations Telegram feature, but it seems that it's not storing any info when push Save Settings button. When i came back to check if everything has been set up correctly, all the record are empty.

Again, thank you so much for the quick implementation, it's amazing. I will be glad to help in testing if needed.

Give it a try! Should work now. Did some tests on my own with my own bot.
Added some clearer instructions to find chat id as well.
