Popup ChatBox: Use WP Plugin "Header Footer Code Manager"
If you wish to add your chat bot across your entire site, to specific categories or custom post types we recommend you install a free plugin called "Header Footer Code Manager" available from https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/header-footer-code-manager/
Install and activate the plugin and follow the instructions to add a new code snippet.
[With the plugin you can choose where to run your chat bot via the 'site display' setting]
A benefit is that when you add the snippet, the plugin creates a shortcode too which can then be placed directly onto a page or post WITHOUT having to switch to the text editor.
The code snippet for a popup chatbox from Chitchat Chimp is the first one given when you save your chatbot:
NOTE: Adding your ChitChat Chimp code directly to your WordPress page by changing to Text view instead of Visual view and pasting the code there - does not work for a Popup ChatBox!
To place your ChatBot on your WordPress post or page,
- Copy the code given for the inline Chatbot
- Switch to TEXT view in your WordPress editor
- Paste the code
- Publish your page/post
