I'm just integrating GraphComment into my (Hugo) blog as a first-time user. I did eventually settle on a design that works for me, but along the way tried a few other things that did not work the way I expected or wished them to. I'm no CSS expert, so maybe there are ways to do these things which I'd be eager to hear about.
1. On the Sidebar Panel, I wish there were a way to hide the comment button and just click the floating bubble to open the panel. When using just the bubble, it would be nice for the bubble to show a count of existing comments (like the button does). I'm not an HTML/CSS expert, maybe there is a way to accomplish these? I did try adding `style="display: none;" to <div id="graphcomment">, which did hide the button, but also prevented the comment panel from opening when I clicked on the bubble. The overlay did render when I clicked the bubble.
2. The comments section that you get with universal code looks bad when, as is usually the case, there are not any comments yet. At least it looks bad to my eye on my site. I'd like an option in the universal code integration to start off with a titled button and count of current comments (like the Side Panel) which, when clicked on, opens the inline comment div (like the universal code does now). I don't argue that this ought to be the *default* option.
