Before you begin, you'll need to have the following:

  • A PushFeedback account. If you don't have one, sign up for free.
  • A project created in your PushFeedback dashboard. If you haven't created one yet, follow the steps in the Quickstart guide.
  • A Hugo project.


To integrate the PushFeedback widget into your Hugo site:

  1. Open your terminal or command prompt. Navigate to your project's root directory using the cd command:

    cd your-hugo-site/themes/your-theme-name/

    Replace your-hugo-site with the path to your Hugo site and your-theme-name with the name of the theme you're using.

  2. Find the head partial, which is often located under layouts/partials/. Add the following code to this file:

    <!-- Initialize the PushFeedback widget -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    <script type="module" src=""></script>
  3. Next, find the footer partial (or wherever you'd like the feedback button to be placed) and add the following code just before the closing tags:

    <feedback-button project="<YOUR_PROJECT_ID>" button-position="bottom-right" modal-position="bottom-right" button-style="light">Feedback</feedback-button>

    Replace <YOUR_PROJECT_ID> with your project's ID from the PushFeedback dashboard.

  4. After making these changes, navigate back to your Hugo project root and run:

    hugo server

    Once it builds successfully, verify that the feedback button appears and functions correctly on your site.
