This page describes the particulars of setting up comment provider plugins. It should be considered supplemental to the documentation for general plugins.

Type

The plugin type for comment providers is comments. So the configuration for Commento would be under params.comments.commento instead of params.plugins.commento.

Comments Partial

The partial partial for comment providers is placed inside a <div> underneath the authorbox, if there is one. Otherwise, it is beneath the page content.

If the comment service requires creating a <div> with a special id or class, create that div inside the partial partial.

Other Resources

Comment services typically tell users to include CSS and/or JavaScript just under the comments <div>. When creating a comments plugin, the CSS should be in the head partial and the JavaScript in the foot partial.
