## How do I enable Slash Commands for Eventcord on my server?

When the Slash Command update for Eventcord was published, the bot attempted to generate commands for every server. Eventcord uses guild-based slash command instead of global commands to allow for localization. If you do not see any slash commands, try using `;setup slash`. If you receive an error, try reauthorizing the bot by using the invite link.
