Commentbox and coder theme


#1

Hello!

My site = mattbrody.io
Commentbox = https://commentbox.io/docs
Github for website = https://github.com/M-Brody/mattbrody-website

I would like to try out Commentbox as my commenting system for my blog rather than the default disqus. Has anyone had any experience integrating comment box into a Hugo theme such as coder?

I was a little confused on where to start adding the code listed in the installation guide.

I’m pretty new to Hugo and website development in general and any help would be greatly appreciated.

You’ll need to do two things:

  1. Include the relevant scripts; search on the forums, there are tons of ways to do this, and you can see what folks have done
  2. Include the div in the templates where you were going to include the other commenting widget

We don’t advise on general web tech here, but we do have a Recommended Reading Reference, and to get started with theming, we have lots of docs. You can also check the theme directory to see how they do things. :slight_smile:
