The Get Author Method

In your User class/model you must add the getAuthor method that has to return some user attributes:

class User extends Model implements ...
     * Return the user attributes.

     * @return array
    public function getAuthor()
        return [
            'id'     => $this->id,
            'name'   => $this->name,
            'email'  => $this->email,
            'url'    => $this->url,  // Optional
            'avatar' => 'gravatar',
            'admin'  => $this->role === 'admin', // bool

By default the avatar is set to Gravatar, but you can return an image.

The admin attribute makes use of the role field, added to the users table in the installation part.
If you have another way of detecting if the user is admin, then the admin attribute must a boolean value.

Include The CSS Files

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/vendor/comments/css/prism-okaidia.css"> <!-- Optional -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/vendor/comments/css/comments.css">


No Bootstrap!

If you don't use Bootstrap, include /vendor/comments/css/bootstrapless.css instead of bootstrap.min.css.
By doing so, the Bootstrap CSS will be isolated to the comments and won't conflict with your CSS.

Include The JavaScript Files

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
<script src="/vendor/comments/js/prism.js"></script> <!-- Optional -->
<!-- This must be included before the closing </body> tag! -->
<script src="/vendor/comments/js/comments.js"></script> 

If you have already included jQuery or Bootstrap JS you don't have to include them again.
Even if your app doesn't use Bootstrap, the bootstrap.min.js file is still required.

Notice: Make sure you you have the Laravel Authentication driver configured.

Display The Comments

@include('comments::display', ['pageId' => 'page1'])

The pageId parameter should be set to an unique identifier (int/string) for each page.

Access The Admin Panel

You can access the Admin Panel at /comments/admin, but make sure the user that you're logged in with has the role field set to admin in the database.

If you have something like phpMyAdmin just edit the role field or you can write a simple query to edit a user:

$user = \App\User::find(1);
$user->role = 'admin';
