How to install Weply chat on your website

You will receive your custom JavaScript that needs to be inserted into your website footer. If your website does not have a footer, then you will need to place in right before </body> tag of your website.

The way to do this differs from one platform to the other. Here are some of the most common, that we have made a guide for:

WordPress

Wix

Joomla

Squarespace

 

WordPress

Method 1. Add script with the help of a plugin

If you don’t have access to the source code of your website, you can make use of plugins to help you install the chat on your website.

  1. Download Insert Headers and Footers
  2. Install and activate the plugin through WordPress by accessing Plugins > Add new > Upload plugin
  3. After activation, you can access your new plugin via Settings > Insert Headers and Footers. You will see 3 fields: Scripts in Header, Scripts in Body and Scripts in Footer.
  4. Copy the script you received and paste it in the Scripts in Footer
  5. Click Save
  6. Check your website to see if the chat is activated.

Method 2. Add the script manually with coding

If you are more familiar with WordPress and would like to add the script on your website’s source code directly, you will need to create a new function that adds the script wp_footer to the theme’s functions.php file.

Wix

  2. Access Settingsof your website dashboard

Joomla

How you add the script onto your site depends on the template you are using. There is no universal method to implement the script at the moment. The most important thing to make sure of is that the chat is visible on all pages of the website.

  1. Navigate to /templates/(your template)/index.php
  2. Insert the script right before the </body> tag.

If the chat is only visible on your front page, you may have to repeat this process on all visible pages.

Alternatively, there are many extensions for Joomla that assists with adding JavaScript on websites. How to do this will depend on the script you are using, so it is best to refer to their documentation.
