Comm100 provides plugins for Joomla sites. This article walks you through the process of installing Live Chat onto your Joomla!1.6 or above in minutes. Please note that we provide a different plugin for Joomla!1.5. If you are using Joomla!1.5, please click here for instructions.​

You should have a Live Chat account with Comm100. If you don't have one, click here to sign up.  

Step by Step Instructions:

Step 1. Download the Live Chat plugin;

Step 2. Open your Joomla administration panel and click Extension Manager from the Extensions drop-down list;

Step 3. Click Choose File to browse for the Live Chat plugin (it's a zip file) and then click Upload & Install;

Step 4. Click Module Manager from the Extensions drop-down list and you will find Comm100 Live Chat listed in the module list. Click on Comm100 Live Chat to open the module settings page;

Step 5. Make Live Chat shown on your page(s) by setting Module Assignment, enter your live chat Basic Options (Site Id, Plan Id and Partner Id) and publish the module;

  • In the Code Type option, please choose Main Code

  • Get the Site Id and Plan Id information from your live chat code. From the sample code shown below, you'll learn the Site Id is 10000 and the Plan Id is 656.

<!--Begin Comm100 Live Chat Code-->
<div id="comm100-button-656"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var Comm100API=Comm100API||{chat_buttons:[]};
        var lc=document.createElement('script'); 
        var s=document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];s.parentNode.insertBefore(lc,s);
<!--End Comm100 Live Chat Code-->


Step 6. Click Save and then you can see a chat button show up on your site.

[Not Helpful]   These instructions do not address the redirect issue that happens should you use the Java Based Code provided nor the absence of tracking should you choose to use the Non-java Code.<br /><br />There is still work to be done to help this.<br />

[Not Helpful]   <p>The module is created yes, but from the front end, when I click on the chat button, it opens <a href=""></a> instead of opening the chat window.</p>
