Here's a step-by-step guide to help you install PushFeedback in your MkDocs project.

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 MkDocs project.


To integrate the PushFeedback widget into your MkDocs site:

  1. Navigate to your docs folder and locate the overrides directory (create one if it doesn't exist).

  2. Inside the overrides directory, create or edit the file named base.html.


    The file names of the templates to override and the block names you need to override might be different, depending on your theme. This example is specifically for the Material for MkDocs theme. Always refer to your theme's documentation or source templates to ensure accurate customization.

  3. In this base.html, extend the base template and override the necessary sections. Here's what you should add:

    {% extends "base.html" %}

    {% block extrahead %}
    <!-- PushFeedback styles -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

    <!-- PushFeedback script as ES6 module -->
    <script type="module" src=""></script>
    {% endblock %}

    {% block content %}
    {{ super() }}

    <!-- Feedback button -->
    <feedback-button project="<YOUR_PROJECT_ID>" button-position="bottom-right" modal-position="bottom-right" button-style="light">Feedback</feedback-button>
    {% endblock %}
  4. Ensure your mkdocs.yml points to the overrides directory:

    name: 'material'
    custom_dir: 'docs/overrides'
  5. Build your MkDocs project:

    mkdocs build

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