Chat plugin in sidebar?

Hello,
Is there any way to put your Chat plugin within a widget or sidebar?
Thanks.

    Hi @lucianoippolito,

    Not directly, no. But, you can cheat a little :slight_smile:

    Go to edit any page on your site and, in visual editor mode, click the icon to add a chat window. Copy the generated code (delete it from the page if you wish).

    Then add a text widget to your desired sidebar, and paste the chat shortcode there.

    If your theme does not support shortcodes in widgets, there are 2 things you can do:
    Add the following to your theme's functions.php file:
    add_filter( 'widget_text', 'do_shortcode');
    Or, if you don't want to edit any files, try the following plugin (it does exactly the same thing):

    Hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
