Mastalab Comments will automatically display comments from Mastodon corresponding to the URL of your articles in the comment area of your site.
In other words, if you publish a URL on Mastodon and people leave comments, they will be automatically displayed below your articles.

The plugin also allows to display comments below Peertube videos.


**What do I need?**

You need an account on Mastodon that will publish URLs for your articles.


**What is Mastodon?**

Mastodon is a distributed, federated social network that forms part of the Fediverse, an interconnected and decentralized network of independently operated servers.
Sources: [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_(software))


**How to get started with Mastodon?**

The best way is to visit [https://joinmastodon.org/](https://joinmastodon.org/). You can also have a look to the [FAQ](https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/FAQ.md)


**How to block comments?**
Comments are displayed related to the connected account. That means you have to mute the account with your Mastodon account. In future releases, this part might be improved.
