Embedding a Chat Plugin in Any Block of Your Website: How to Create a Holistic Platform for User Communication
If you're looking to create a full-fledged social network with built-in chat, you're in luck! A new feature has been added to the ImbaChat platform that allows you to add a chat plugin to any block of your website, making it easy to fully integrate the chat with your website and create a holistic platform for user communication.
With this feature, you can say goodbye to pop-up chat windows that interrupt the user experience and instead embed the chat plugin directly into any existing place on your website. This way, users can seamlessly communicate with each other without being distracted by unnecessary details like a float chat.
Before you start using this function and inserting a chat into a specific block, make sure that the entire visual of the block is configured and all styles are written. This will ensure that the chat plugin blends seamlessly with the rest of your website and looks like a natural extension of it.
To manage this function, head to the style settings section in the Placeholder's settings sub-item in your Dashboard. From there, you can check the "enable" box and enter the name of the new block, which refers to its ID or class name. Once you've applied the settings, the widget will be fixed in the block you registered in the Dashboard and displayed in full width.
Here's an example of a placeholder:
