Thanks timethief. I figured out how to install the chat, but it only shows up as a single link, not as a chat box. What I want is: a chat box in my sidebar, where visitors to my site would be able to chat directly from my site with me or with each other. Is it possibel to do that with google chat? If so, how? Also, I had already tried the meebo chatbox widget. I installed it and all. But the thing doesn't work. It always says that I am offline, when clearly I am online. And I tested it out by having a friend try to chat with me on there via her computer. No luck.
