Webflow Memberships + Hyvor Talk SSO Integration

This is a short guide on how to set up Hyvor Talk with Webflow native Memberships.

Webflow recently introduced native memberships. This is a short tutorial on how to set up Hyvor Talk commenting system with Webflow Memberships for authentication.

As of April 2023, Webflow does not have an official membership API to get the currently logged-in user’s data. For this integration, we’ll be using an open-source third-party library, Sygnal Attributes to get user data.

Setting up Hyvor Talk

First, create a new website at Hyvor Talk Console. You will get a website ID, which you will need in the next steps.

Then, go to Settings -> SSO settings.

  • Enable SSO

  • Select SSO type Stateless

  • Enable the Keyless option

  • Change the Login URL to your website’s login page URL

Adding code to Webflow

In the Webflow designer, add an Embed element (drag it to the place you need comments to load)

3<div id="comments-view"></div>
5<script type="module">
6 import { WfuUserInfo, WfuUser } from 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/sygnaltech/webflow-util@4.7/src/modules/webflow-membership.js';
7 import { WfuDataBinder } from 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/sygnaltech/webflow-util@4.7/src/modules/webflow-databind.min.js';
9 $(function() {
10 var membership = new WfuUserInfo({
11 userInfoUpdatedCallback: wfucallback
12 }).init();
13 });
15 async function wfucallback(user) {
16 var dataBinder = new WfuDataBinder({
17 user: user
18 }).bind();
19 if (WfuUser.current !== null) {
20 loadComments(user);
21 }
22 }
24 function loadComments(user) {
26 const comments = document.createElement('hyvor-talk-comments');
27 comments.setAttribute('website-id', "YOUR_WEBSITE_ID");
29 if (user) {
30 comments.setAttribute('sso-user', btoa(JSON.stringify({
31 timestamp: Math.floor(Date.now() / 1000),
32 id: user.user_id_alt,
33 name: user.name_short_tcase || user.name || user.email.replace(/@.+/, ''),
34 email: user.email,
35 })))
36 }
38 document.getElementById("comments-view").appendChild(comments);
40 }
  • Make sure to replace YOUR_WEBSITE_ID in line 27 (highlighted) with your actual website ID from the last step (number).
