Note that this tutorial is for a Course module but the steps are similar for adding commenting to blog posts and pages (simply edit the corresponding template).
We will also briefly cover setting up automated comments to help encourage people to engage.

First, we need to open the ClickFunnels template editor. For courses, this is accessed by opening the course and clicking
Customize in the top right:
Courses consist of different templates. We want to display comments on lessons, so select
Default Lesson Page (for example):
That's it! Now you're ready for step two.
Now that we're in the template editor, we must decide where we want to display the comments, or live chat.
In this example we will add it directly below the video. Hover the element to add the widget to the end of, and click
Now let's open the code editor where we'll paste our code.
ClickFunnels is a bit confusing on this next step.
It's important that you DO NOT select
Code when you hover over the new element. Instead, select
Now on the right hand side we can click
Open Code Editor:
You'll see a big square open up. This is where we can paste our code. Copy the following snippet (use the copy button in the top right):
This code snippet is for our Streaming Chat product, which goes well with videos. If you want the Live Commenting widget code snippet instead, which goes best with regular pages or blog posts, it's at the end of this tutorial.
When we paste the code snippet into the window, it should look like this:
Now we just have to close the box:
Now you can preview your changes! Feel free to move the widget around and see where you like it best.
Success! Don't forget to test mobile!

FastComments supports something called Auto Play. This allows you to import a CSV of comments and schedule them to play at certain offsets based on hour, minute, and seconds from page load time.
It also automatically adds any comments posted back into the autoplay script, at the correct time, so that your video script grows with each webinar without any manual work.
This is currently included in all FastComments plans.
Remember that the
URL ID column in the CSV file must match the
URL of the course/video.
