Setting up Hyvor Talk

Add Website

Now, type a name and domain, and click "Add" (You can add more domain names later). This will generate a new website ID for your website in Hyvor Talk. And, you are now ready to embed Hyvor Talk comments on your website.

The embed should load on your website now. If you want to view the embed in the Wix Editor, you will need to add static.parastorage.com or static.wixstatic.com to allowed domains in Console -> Install, if an error is shown.

To embed Hyvor Talk on Squarespace websites, the Code Injection feature is required, which is only available in Squarespace Business and Commerce plans.

  1. In the Squarespace Dashboard, go to Pages.

    Squarespace Pages

  2. Choose settings (⚙️) of the Page type you want to add comments to.

    Squarespage Page Type

  3. In the settings popup, go to Advanced -> Blog post item code injection, paste the embed code there (copy it at Console -> Install), and save.

Now, you should see the Hyvor Talk comments section in the pages under the posts.

  1. Enter your Website ID here (Copy it from Console -> Install):

  2. After adding the correct website ID above, click the button to open the Blogger Add Page Element window which is customized for Hyvor Talk.

  3. Choose the correct blog and click "Add Widget" button on that page.

  4. You'll see a widget named "Hyvor Talk". Change the position of it as needed.

To install Hyvor Talk on Ghost, you will need to change the theme template files.

  1. Open the template file of your Ghost theme, which is usually post.hbs in your theme folder.
  2. Then, copy and paste the embed code (take it from the Console) to the place you want comments to load.
  3. Replace id: false with id: "{{comment_id}}" in the installation code. Then, we will use page IDs given by Ghost to identify pages, which works better than canonical URLs.

Note: Some themes may have the following code in the template file. If so, replace the "If you want to..." line with the copied embed code. Then, uncomment the block (remove the lines which contains {{!-- and --}}).

{{!--
    <section classname="post-full-comments">
        If you want to add embed comments, this is a good place to do it!
    </section>
--}}

The default embed code is a HTML code. However, you may sometimes need a JS-only solution for some applications. Even with this method, you'll need to have access to an element in the DOM or add <div id="hyvor-talk-view"></div> to the DOM.

If you haven't added <div id="hyvor-talk-view"></div> to your HTML code, use this code to do that.

var commentsSection = document.getElementById("comments"); // change the ID to whatever element in your HTML page
var hyvorTalkView = document.createElement("div");
hyvorTalkView.id = "hyvor-talk-view";
commentsSection.appendChild(hyvorTalkView);

Then, add the embed script.

var script = document.createElement("script");
script.type = "text/javascript";
script.src = "https://talk.hyvor.com/web-api/embed.js";
document.body.appendChild(script);

You can use the hyvor-talk-vue package to install Hyvor Talk on Vue applications. Visit the link for more details.

Angular is not yet officially supported. But, you can read the Vanilla JS documentation and create your own custom component for Angular.

Svelte is not yet officially supported. But, you can read the Vanilla JS documentation and create your own custom component for Svelte.

Copy and paste the following code to the layout files you need Hyvor Talk to load (Usually _layouts/post.html for posts). Make sure to replace YOUR_WEBSITE_ID with your actual website ID, which can be found at Console -> Install.

<div id="hyvor-talk-view"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var HYVOR_TALK_WEBSITE = YOUR_WEBSITE_ID;
    var HYVOR_TALK_CONFIG = {
        url: false,
        id: '{{page.id}}'
    };
</script>
<script async type="text/javascript" src="//talk.hyvor.com/web-api/embed"></script>

Copy and paste the following code to the template files you need Hyvor Talk to load (Usually /themes/{theme_name}/layout/_partial/article.ejs for posts). Make sure to replace YOUR_WEBSITE_ID with your actual website ID, which can be found at Console -> Install.


<div id="hyvor-talk-view"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var HYVOR_TALK_WEBSITE = YOUR_WEBSITE_ID;
    var HYVOR_TALK_CONFIG = {
        url: '<%= page.permalink %>' || false,
        id: '<%= page.path %>' || false
    }
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//talk.hyvor.com/web-api/embed"></script>

Allowed Domains

For security, we only serve the embed on domains you whitelist the console (Console -> Website -> Install -> Allowed Domains). If you see a warning like this in the comments section, add the shown domain to the allowed domains list.

Allowed Domains Error

  • Adding example.com whitelists both example.com and www.example.com.
  • To allow all subdomains, use *.example.com.
  • You can also allow all domains by adding * (Not recommended unless you have a network of domains)

Changing Configuration

Page-level settings can be customized in the embed code. See embed code for more details.

Website-level settings can be changed from the Console's Appearance and Community sections.

Single Sign-on

By default, commenters will need a Hyvor account to log in and comment. If you already have an authentication system on your website, you can automatically log in users by setting up Single Sign-on. View SSO Docs for more details.
