docpad install services

Ensure your layout includes the scripts block. With eco, it will look something like this:

<%- @getBlock('scripts').toHTML() %>

This is used for the Gauges, Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Reinvigorate, and Zopim services.

  • Disqus: <%- @getDisqus() %>
  • Service Buttons: <%- @getServiceButtons() %>

Add the following to your docpad configuration file:
