Configuring the frontend

Introduction

Commento's frontend configuration allows you to modify the appearance of the embedded comments box. For example, you can specifying a custom CSS stylesheet to override Commento's default appearance to match the look and feel of your website. In this page, we document how to embed Commento in your website and the exhaustive list of frontend settings you can configure.

You can configure additional frontend settings by adding data attributes to the <script> tag. For example, to specify custom CSS styling, you can add a data-css-override attribute as follows:

<script defer
  src="http://commento.example.com/js/commento.js"
  data-css-override="http://example.com/my-custom-styling.css">
</script>
<div id="commento"></div>

Confiuration settings

Optional
data-css-override

An URL to a CSS file with overriding styles. Defaults to no override and uses Commento's default theme.

data-css-override="http://example.com/my-custom-styling.css"

Optional
data-auto-init

Commento automatically initialises itself when the page is loaded. If you prefer to load Commento dynamically (for example, after the user clicks a button), you can disable this. You will be required to call window.commento.main() when you want to load Commento. By default, this is true.

true, false

Optional
data-id-root

By default, Commento looks for a <div> with id="commento". If you want to load Commento in a different element, you can set this attribute to the ID of that element.

data-id-root="different-element"
