Required parameter


Data-sitename

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


Data-colors

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

Example: data colors='{"n":"50baeb"}'

Data-thread_url

The thread URL is automatically selected by default.

Example: data-thread_url="/example"

Example: data-font_size="-2"
