Sidenotes Integration

Integrate a Sidenotes app by following a process similar to Core Applications.

As a general rule, if your Core Application integration is complete, the code written to generate the collectionMeta object may be reused for Sidenotes.

You can also reuse your existing auth delegates by supplying an auth delegate created with fyre.conv to Sidenotes in the (optional) authDelegate field.


Sidenotes allows you to include network, siteId, and articleId in a single object, rather than passing them separately in other parts of the constructor

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<!-- First add Livefyre.js to the page --> 
<script src=""></script> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
var convConfig = { 
 network: '', 
 siteId: '356373', 
 articleId: 'sidenotes-sample', 
 collectionMeta: 'eyJhbGciOiAiSFMyNTYiLCAidHlwIjogIkpXVCJ9.eyJ1cmwiOiAiaHR0cDovL3d3dy5zaWRlbm90ZXMtZGVtby5jb20vbHlyaWNzIiwgInNpdGVJZCI6ICIzMDQwNTkiLCAidHlwZSI6ICJzaWRlbm90ZXMiLCAiYXJ0aWNsZUlkIjogInNpZGVub3Rlc19zYW1wbGUiLCAidGl0bGUiOiAiQ2xpZW50IFNvbHV0aW9ucyBTaWRlbm90ZXMifQ.2gxnsM0TS8dfp-Jokb5uW1kuMl-DqIlqfJSCBwJgf1k' 
Livefyre.require(['sidenotes#1', 'auth'], function (Sidenotes, Auth) { 
 new Sidenotes(convConfig); 
 login: function (callback) { 

As noted in the Building collectionMeta section, collectionMeta is an encoded JSON object. In the example above, the JSON object takes the following format before it’s JWT encoded.

"title":"Client Solutions Sidenotes", 

For more information, please see the collectionMeta token.

Mobile Setup

Sidenotes has been optimized for use in mobile devices. For best results with mobile versions of your Livefyre App, set the user-scalable option to no. For example:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, user-scalable=no">
