Python bot won't print


So to start I am admittedly new to both Python (coding in general) and building bots but I am trying to learn as much as I can. Looking at all the other posts here I have a feeling I am in the wrong spot or everyone else is just so much more advanced in this area.

I am creating a general use Discord bot for fun and am running into an issue when getting it to print in the console. I was able to get it to do so fine before and no amount of tinkering based on other templates or guides seems to fix it. I have attached my code and was seeing if anyone else noticed something?

Thanks in advance.

Please don’t post pictures of code:

For what it is worth, programming bots is often not for the faint-hearted. They often run in strange environments where the usual conditions don’t apply, and the APIs often assume the programmer is very advanced, and may be badly documented.

The issue here is that your print command is overwriting the built-in print, so you’re calling that instead.

You should rename that function to something like print_command, and then in the bot.command decorator you can pass name="print" so you can still use print to invoke the command on discord.

Good luck with your bot!

I saw the guide of how to just a bit ago but thank you for the link!

Thank you for responding! I was able to finally get it to work and that was along the lines of the solution.
