Adding a URL to your LiveFyre profile is simple, and you’ll want to do this to take advantage of showing up in the recent comments widget in the sidebar!
It can be done in 3 steps, and takes less time to do than it will take you to read this post. My suggestion is to do it now and be done with it!
How to add a URL to your LiveFyre Profile
First, make sure you are signing in with LiveFyre and not the other methods. This means you will need to create an account. It takes just a few minutes and is really worth it. More and more sites are using LiveFyre, so you might as well get yourself an account and take advantage of the features.
The image below shows what happens when you are trying to leave a comment for the first time on bizchickblogs.com. It recognizes that you are signed into Twitter (or perhaps another service) but still asks you if you want to sign into livefyre or create a new account.
1. Create Your Account from bizchickblogs.com (or whatever LiveFyre blog you are on)
Click “Post comment as” and from there, select “Create a New Account.”
If, by chance, you do not get this pop-up or if you have been leaving comments here signed in via Twitter or another service, to get to the place where you can sign up for LiveFyre, click on the fire indicator in the little box that displays when you hover over the shadowy, scary looking figure at the top of the comment box.
2. Add your account details in the Create an Account window.
Fill in the details. Note, there is a place to add your website right there, however, you need to do the next step because that website information is not automatically added to your profile (yet).
3. Add your URL to your LiveFyre profile from LiveFyre.com.
Next, go to www.livefyre.com in a new tab or browser window. You should already be logged in, but if not, just log in. Go to Settings.
From there, Account Info will be displayed. Scroll down until you see “Your other sites” and add your URL there. Only the first is going to be linked to your username. Click Save.
Now, when you leave a comment on a LiveFyre blog using your LiveFyre account, your username will be linked to your website and this will work with the recent comments widgets.
Let me know if you have any questions!
