Facebook Messenger Chat Box Addon

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've developed a neat little header tag module that drops a Facebook messenger chat box into your site - so much easier than trying to get one of the live chat addons to work and its free.

Connects to your Facebook (business) Page simply.

I've tried it on EDGE and PHOENIX and it works perfectly (I'm sure it will work on any version... but haven't tested it).

Configurable to have the chat box open on load or not (showing the Facebook Messenger Icon only).

The only thing you need is your Facebook Page ID which can be found with following instructions:

To find your Page ID:

  1. From News Feed, click Pages in the left side menu.
  2. Click your Page name to go to your Page.
  3. Click About in the left column. If you don't see About in the left column, click See More
  4. Scroll down to find your Page ID below More Info.

Quick Edit - some need to whitelist their domains within their Facebook page:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page
  2. Click Messenger Platform on the left
  3. Edit whitelisted domains for your page in the Whitelisted Domains section

I just installed this and the chat box is not showing.

I am using Edge bs4. I have installed the header tags module and entered my Facebook ID what config am I missing?

Just making our PM discussion public.... @LeeFoster FB page ID is correct.... Check the sort order to see if there is a conflict.

Lee.... what is your sort order for this header tag? if not 0 please change to 0 and retest....

Quickly looking - do you have a login modal in your head? It has an error.... Maybe try and inactivate it....

Ok all reading this - Please confirm you’ve had to whitelist your domain? As I understand it... whitelisting may not have been “required”... but haven’t seen an install yet where it worked WITHOUT whitelisting
