3.   How to add Dialogoo chats to Joomla! articles?

Once the plugins are installed follow the following steps to add:

  1. Open the article where you want the chat to appear via the Article Manager.
  2. Position the text cursor where you want the chat widget to appear and click the Dialogoo button below the editor.
  3. The button will automatically type for you the required plugin code:
    {dialogoo id=ID&width=640&height=400}
  4. Edit your ID and USERNAME to match those in your Dialogoo profile and save the article.
  5. That is all. Now each time the plugin sees the {dialogoo id=ID} text on any article on the website it will replace it with the Dialogoo code for that Id and Username.
  6. Note: By default the plugin adds dialogoo with width style of 100% and height style of 100%, but depending on your template it might display differently. If you want to specify other values for width and height you ca follow this example:

    {dialogoo id=ID width=800px height=640px}

    This code will embed a dialogoo chat with width of 320 pixels and height of 240 pixels.
