Chatbox link as a Widget ???

Post by graciousplenty on October 25th 2011, 3:54 am

Hello

I am looking for some help here. I am wanting to add a widget that basically has a link that says to 'click here to enter live chat'.

I've serach a few other threads but every time I have inserted an HTML code it's not what I am looking to do.

Basically the link that I have on bottom of my homepage that states 'Join The Chat' and when clicked on it will open up a seperate window with the chatbox. This is what I want. There has been much confusion with guest invited when we host chats, trying to find the chatbox and login. Just wanting to make it easier.

Hi

I've actually done this but all it does is show the actual chatbox as a smaller widget. I just want a widget that has just a link that you can click and then opens a seperate window with the bigger chatbox version.

I thought I knew how but when I attempted it, I either got a smaller version of the chatbox or the actual url link itself

That's exactly what it is I am wanting but to access it via a link/widget located above my poll widget on right side of forum.

Is this how a member views the forum? Or a visitor?

Why not just use HTML.

Code:

<a href="/chatbox/index.forum" target="_blank">Cick To Join Chat</a>

Bit odd using BBcode in a widget.

use the <font size="+1"> tag so it's basic for you.
