    Hello Everyone,

    I am refering to the new meebo widget. I am using Light 1.0. All the widget code gets stripped out. Anyone has a clue ??

    Thanks for the help!

    Link by the way in case folks are wondering what he’s talking about.

    Looking at your page source, it says you’re adding the code to a text widget. That’s for those who are not hosted here on WP.com. There is a Meebo widget in there. Have you tried it yet?

    I followed the instructions, dragged dropped and configured the meebo widgets we were provided with. You can see them here http://timethief.wordpress.com and here http://coyotes.wordpress.com.

    Just verified that the meebo widget does display in it’s source code that it is the Meebo widget. The one that you used was a text widget.

    Have it working on my test site.

    Don’t know how I feel though about telling my clients to use it in a text widget though. I thought they removed embed tags.

    *chuckle* Just had a scary thought. Granted I can’t see who specifically is visiting my site, I can see though how many folks are on it currently. :)

    Is that a plus or a minus?

    dashboard -> presentation -> sidebar wdigets

    drag and drop the meebo widget from the available widgets into your sidebar

    open it click on the link “go get html code” go to the meembo site register copy and past the code into the widget save the widget click “save changes”

    Like drmike said before, the HTML code needs to be inserted into the Meebo widget, which you can find through DASHBOARD > PRESENTATION > SIDEBAR WIDGETS. Move the Meeboo widget to whatever placement you like, click the text icon on the widget, and enter the code exactly as is given to you through Meebo.com

    I’ll be interested to see how many people have problems with intermittent service using the widget. It often says I’m “offline” even when I’m “on.”

    While this thread is about getting the widget to work, I’d just like to mention that any bugs with the MeeboMe widget should be directed to the people at the Meebo forums.

    Yo have to login with the Meebo service and plug in your IM account for it to show up as you being online.

    Could have sworn I wrote that bennis was using the wrong widget…

    Yes you did say this and yes he/she got the same instructions twice. I ditched both meembome widgets. The one on coyotes was wrongly saying I was offline when I was online. The one on timethief was correctly saying I was online when I was online. But signing off and on proved to be something I couldn’t accomplish.
    P.S. I don’t know what an IM account is.
    Whatever is said in the meebome isn’t a blog comment right?

    Thanks a million guys! I didn’t realize WP.com added a whole new widget for meebo! I was pasting the code in a Text widget. Got it working now. Thx

    same problem here, but this is obviously a meebo problem. the first i logged in there was no problems but just now, i couldn’t and my connection, despite being on dialup is fine.

    Note that it downloads what appears to be a fairly large Flash program when you access the Meebo website (ie not when you display the widget on your site but when you actually log in) Took about 12 seconds to load here on what I believe is a DS-3 line. (45Mb) Loaded fairly quickly when I was up at UNCC last night but they have a pair of OC-192’s (10Gb x 2) into the school.

    I can’t see how big the flash file is here (Can’t view the PC’s cache) but that’s probably why it’s slow to load.

    I just logged in to meebo on my coyotes meebo. typed in my username and password. It says I’m online so now what? I don’t really understand how it works.

    It will say you’re logged in on your coyotes meebo widget. Just checked and it says you’re there. :)

    Okay but suppose someone does type me a message. How do I answer it? Where do I type the answer? Do I have to leave a tab open back to meebo all the time after I’ve signed in?
    Could you please send me a message and walk me through receiving and answering it?

    If you’re signed into Meemo, you should get a little square on your screen showing you your message.

    I dragged and dropped my meembo widget off my blog sidebar back into the available widgets. Chat doesn’t cut it as a commentary. Also while I’m working on my blogs I do not really want to live chat. I’d rather have people leave written comments that I can moderate. Lastly I had to keep a tab open continously for meebo messaging. Perhaps if there was a prompting thingee on my firefox browser I might feel differently. But for now don’t meebo me is where I’m at.
