What is it?

This adds Facebook's "Chat plugin" functionality to your site, allowing your configured visitors to initiate Facebook Chats with your Facebook page.

How?

Simple - it adds the code provided by Facebook to your theme without the need to edit the theme itself. All you have to do is provide your Facebook Page ID to the plugin's settings.

But how do I do that?

Well, first you do the following (correct at the time of posting this, and will be updated as and when Facebook change their instructions):

  • Go to your Facebook page
  • In the 'Manage Page' column, locate and click 'Meta Business Suite'
  • On the resulting page, ensure you are in your desired page - there is a dropdown at the top listing pages, just in case you have multiples
  • Click 'Inbox'
  • Click the cog icon in the top-right, then click 'View all settings'
  • Click 'Chat Plugin'
  • Click 'Set up, then 'Standard' and then follow the prompts to:
    • Set your language
    • Add your site domain (include test domains, if needed)
    • Copy the code (you'll need this soon)
    • Paste the code (just pretend you've done it, click 'Finish')
  • You can configure the chat plugin further, if you wish, via the 'Customise your Chat plugin' section
  • Then you look at that copied code, find the line that contains the 'page_id'
chatbox.setAttribute("page_id", "123445523342432376");
  • The series of numbers in there is, surprise surprise, your Facebook Page ID: 123445523342432376
  • So copy it and add it in the relevant field in the plugin settings in the ACP.
  • While you are at it, also grab the version number from the code
version          : 'v15.0'
  • That value (15.0) can be added in the relevant filed in the plugin settings in the ACP, if it differs from the default value already present.

Works like a charm! Thank you for this!

Do as the steps say, there is many options to customize everything. It worked on all my very complicated setup without even a slight hiccup!
