Webflow offers creative professionals an easier, more visual way to design and host responsive websites. To date, web designers often simply outsource the work of coding a responsive site after first using something like Photoshop or Illustrator to create the design itself, or they use frameworks for front-end development. Webflow is different. It not only offers a visual editor that lets you drag-and-drop, customize responsive layouts, and define CSS styles for each device you want to support, but you can also publish your site immediately upon completion. In this article, I’ll be guiding you on how to add comments to your Webflow website.
When you need to build an audience on your website, there are some key things that you need to do:
- Adding social share buttons
- Adding a comments section so that users can engage, share feedback, ask questions, and contribute to your content
- Optionally, you can add a reactions system (so that users can add their reactions)
In this article, we are going to explain how to add comments to your Webflow website using the Hyvor Talk commenting platform. Surprisingly, Hyvor Talk comes with a reactions plugin. So, you can add reactions at the same time!
Why Hyvor Talk?
Hyvor Talk is a fully-featured commenting platform that you can embed on your Webflow website in a few minutes. It is also ad-free and privacy-focused. Unlike most other free plugins, Hyvor Talk does not place ads or affiliate links on your website to monetize your content. We are committed to protect the privacy of your visitors. Hyvor Talk is fully customizable so that you can customize its colors, fonts, and texts so that it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your site or blog.
Additionally, the Webflow team has tested and listed Hyvor Talk as an official Webflow intergration on Webflow University.
