Comment System


Unless otherwise specified, the following configurations are modified in the /_config.shokax.yml or /_config.shokaX.yml files.


If you are migrating from shoka, please note that shokaX has removed support for minivaline as the minivaline repository has been archived (ceased maintenance). It is recommended to use waline instead. ShokaX will not provide support for valine due to serious security issues with the valine comment system, and because valine is no longer open-source after version 1.4.0.
