How to get a FREE Chatbox for your SMF site!
« on: December 26, 2008, 10:05:42 pm »
That's right... A FREE chatbox to go into your forums, and to get it easily!

I will be showing you how to in just a moment, after this brief summarizing the chapter theory!:

Chapter 1 - Getting the ChatBox
Chapter 2 - entering information for your chatbox
Chapter 3 - putting your chatbox in your site


CHAPTER 1 - Getting your ChatBox

To get your chatbox, you must first go to http://www.xat.com

Click on widgets, then when the page loads, click on "get a free chatbox now" You are not done yet, so keep this page up.

CHAPTER 2 - entering information for your chatbox

You will be shortly redirected to a new page, if you had followed my instructions above.

You will now need to pick a picture for your backround on the chatbox. You may use your own, use a pre-made backround, or even get one off of photobucket. But I suggest using the pre-made ones.

Now, you must choose if you want the ChatBox to be large, medium, or small. For my site, I used medium, but you may choose whatever you feel is right.

Lastly, click "update and get code" and when you click it, below it will say "copy the code below to your page" copy that. (if you don't fail at life you would know that to copy it you must highlight it and hold down Ctrl+C at the same time) Now when you are sure you have copied it, go to your SMF site,

CHAPTER 3 - Putting your chatbox in your forums

When you are at your site, click on "admin" at the top of the page. Now under navigation, look for "boards" and click on it. Create a new category. Inside that category, create a board and name the board "Chatbox" and for description, put the code you copied earlier in this tutorial. now save this board, go home, and look at the ChatBox you have made.

If you have any questions, please leave me a message, and I would be very glad if you registered on my forums at http://www.hellsjanitor.smfnew.com

Thanks for reading, and enjoy your ChatBox.

Thanks, Alex!

At the moment, I am currently testing other HTML's to attract more viewers to the forums. That is one perk that the ChatBox gave me so I felt like I should make a tutorial
