See the example of the SolidOpinion commenting widget standard code:



Required parameter:




A short name is a unique identifier of your site within the SolidOpinion system. This parameter is obligatory to be specified, otherwise the widget will fail to load.

Example: data-sitename=”example”


Optional parameters




The Data-colors parameter enables you to change the color scheme of the widget to match the look and feel of your website.


Hex colors (“ffffff”):


n – user names and links

The thread URL is automatically selected by default. To avoid duplication of discussions on certain sites, in case you have different URLs for desktop and mobile site versions, use this parameter to specify the thread URL in the widget code – this way you’ll get duplicated discussions merged into one.

Example: data-thread_url=”/example”

This parameter enables you to change the font size used in the comment widget ( -2px; -1px; +1px; +2px of default widget font size )


Example: data-font_size=”-2″
