Custom Feedback Forum buttons and links

Per default, users open your Feedback Forum by clicking a tab in the side of your website. However, in some cases, you may want the Feedback Forum window to be opened in a different way - eg. through your main menu, a text link or a button. Fear not, the Feedback Forum API allows you to create exactly the type of integration you want. 

Basic examples

Triggering the Feedback Forum to either open or close

Opens Feedback Forum

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Open']);">Feedback</a>

Closes Feedback Forum

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Close']);">Feedback</a>

Advanced examples

Per default, the Feedback Forum opens up the "Most popular ideas" view. However, by adding another parameter to the code above, you can open up any page in your forum. See examples below:

Add new idea

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Open', 'submit/idea']);">Feedback</a>

Report a bug

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Open', 'submit/bug']);">Feedback</a>

Search for something

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Open', 'ideas/search/search-term']);">Feedback</a>

Open with newest ideas

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Open', 'ideas/recent']);">Feedback</a>

Open with closed ideas

<a href="#" onclick="_urq.push(['Feedback_Open', 'ideas/closed']);">Feedback</a>

Direct link to forum

Your feedback forum can also be opened directly on a static URL, which might be convenient in certain cases. Read more
