Setting Up for Installation

In order to install a web chat widget on Joomla, you will need the following:
  • Access to your Joomla admin panel
  • A code snippet for your web chat widget
If you don't have a code snippet already, you will generate one when creating a respond.io Website Chat Widget or using the Facebook Chat Plugin for Facebook Messenger.
If you have the channels already connected on the respond.io platform and you need to retrieve the generated code snippet, navigate to the Manage Channels section under Settings. Press the respective blue Edit button to find the generated script.
