Using Webhooks

ReplyBox can send webhook events that notify your application any time a new comment is posted. This is especially useful for notifying external services such as Zapier of new comments.

To add a webhook endpoint, head over to your site dashboard and navigate to the Notifications tab. Click Add Endpoint. Webhooks require a Pro subscription.

ReplyBox add webhook endpoint

When a new comment is submitted, a POST request will be made to your endpoint with the following JSON payload:

{
  "user": {
    "name": "John Doe",
    "avatar_url": "https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/a2dbc76c987031a8b794e0afa08f0536.jpg"
  },
  "comment": {
    "id": 12345,
    "url": "https://acmepublishing.com/blog/my-awesome-post/#comment-12345",
    "parent_id": 1234,
    "markdown": "I am ~~never~~ wrong.",
    "html": "
