We are moving the support from Google+ to stackoverflow ! It is way easier for people knowledgeable to find your questions and format responses: Just use the tag "errbot" (+ python is a good idea too) like those http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/errbot. Thanks for making this community awesome, we will still use Google+ but not for support or coding questions !

Hello, I'm using the telegram backend for ErrBot.
I know that telegram API allows for messages to use markdown and html. If I understand everything well, I could change " self.telegram.sendMessage(msg.to.id, body)
" for something using "parse_mode " indicating, for example, Markdown but I was wondering if there are any plans to change this (maybe adding a parameter in the configuration or in the communication functions for the bot). Or, maybe, there is a better way to do this.

I installed Errbot on CentOS server,it shows all installed .Now how do i test it ans want to write some custom script for automating script running at remote place.Can some one also guide me on same

I am new to Errbot,trying to implement it on CENT OS.And i am looking for functionality like when i click or send a message the errbot should execute automated script linked to that button/message.I have the scripts ready but question is can errbot do it ? and how do i integrate those scripts to those messages?
