Content

With these settings you can change the look of media captions, author names and set the length of messages.

Captions

You can choose the way you want to receive / forward a media (image, video etc) and its caption.

/setting caption + one of the following options:

separate - an image and its caption will come as two separate messages
Ex. /setting caption separate

caption_name - image&caption will come as 1 message with the channel's name & link to the original channel (please note that the caption's body will be truncated in case of exceeded length).
Ex. /setting caption caption_name

text_only - no media will be sent, only its caption.
Ex. /setting caption text_only

To apply this setting to one channel only, replace the command /setting with /settingchannel @channel_name (read more).

Author

This setting applies only to messages already containing author’s name. You can choose how the name of a messages’ author will be displayed.

/setting author + one of the following options:

none - no name
Ex. /setting author none

name - add name only
Ex. /setting author name

username - add @username only
Ex. /setting author username

full - add name and @username
Ex. /setting author full

To apply this setting to one channel only, replace the command /setting with /settingchannel @channel_name (read more).

If you want to receive only messages from a certain user, then enable this setting and set up a filter for the user’s name with a command /filter.

Please notice that the bot can’t magically find the information about the author if it’s not present in the message. So if you don’t see this information in the message in your Telegram client, then this setting will not have any effect.

Shorten long messages

Long messages will be shortened to a certain length. Under the shortened message there will be a button to show a full text. Recommended values are between 150 (twitter-like posts) and 1000 (several paragraphs). To disable this feature set this value to 0.

/setting brief + number of symbols

0 - disabled
Ex. /setting brief 0

[number] of characters to show
Ex. /setting brief 140
Ex. /setting brief 1000

To apply this setting to one channel only, replace the command /setting with /settingchannel @channel_name (read more).
