I thought it would help to add a small FAQ here (Coming from the updated README.md file I have just checked in on GitHub, as so far all reported issues have been solved this way:
Please try these steps before reporting an issue:
I have installed Pimatic-Telegram, but no messages are sent, and no errors are logged. Whats wrong?
Please check the following first, as all similar issues have been solved so far by taking the below steps:
Has the plugin been activated? Check the section "Install the Plugin"
Have you activated the intended recipient? Or has the enabled check box accidentally not been checked
Restart Pimatic, this is often forgotten after the installation and or configuration. If you did everything right, you have rebooted Pimatic twice, once after installation, and once after configuration
I upgraded from a previous version and now messages are no longer sent?
A change in recipient configuration was made since 1.0.2. You will need to create recipients as outlined in the section “Configuration”. The userChatId in the “main” config options is no longer used,i and will be removed in a future version. Just create a new recipient, and copy the userChatId over, restart Pimatic and Presto !
