Add a live chat software to my blog?

  1. I want to add a live chat software to my blog, so that when people come to my site, they can access to me. Can anyone recommend a good live chat that can be added to my site easily?

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. In case you still haven't found a live chat tool. There are quite a few hosted providers that offer free plans. It's easy to install them. Only add a few lines of HTML code to the footer area of your page (I believe WordPress.com allows you to do that - can't say for sure though).
    The providers I'd take a look at are Zopim, Olark, Snapengage and Userlike. They all offer free plans with a reduced number of features and at least 20 chat conversations per month, which is enough for smaller sites. You can find reviews of these providers here: http://www.chattooltester.com/live-chat-software-reviews/
    Just let me know if you have any further questions.

  4. I use chatango, it embeds perfectly into my phbb forums.

    Please stop posting solutions that only apply to self hosted WordPress.org installs on this forum. It confuses people unnecessarily. Read this > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
    Then go to the correct support forum here http://wordpres.org/suppoert/ and do your posting there.

    You failed to post an active link starting with http:// to the exact blog in question and there is no blog linked to your username. if you are referring to a free hosted WordPress.com blog be aware that we Volunteers are not aware of any chatbox widgets that can be used on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. The meebo chat widget was discontinued on July 11th.
