Meebo and WordPress.com

The only chat widget allowed on wordpress.com blogs at this time is the meebo widget.

The code is obtained from going to the meebo website and registering there. It’s 3 step process to create your sidebar widget and setup an account with them. After the 3rd step there will be a box to copy the code you need to put into your sidebar widget.

  1. Log into your WP admin -> Appearance -> Widgets.  Click “add” on the meebo widget and it will appear in your sidebar.
  2. Open the  widget and  copy the code that you got from  meebome.com into it.
  3. After you have pasted the code in  click “Save Changes”.

    The meebo widget is the only chat widget that can be used on a wordpress.com blog. What you can add to a free hosted wordpress.com blog is only html in text widgets. We cannot edit our underlying templates because they are shared by with everyone else using the same theme on the wordpress.com multiuser blogging platform.

    Also javascript of flash as they will stripped out by the wp.com software to preserve security. If you want complete control over your template, you’re probably better off running self hosted a wordpress.org installation on a web host of your own. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-read-me-first-before-posting?replies=1

  2. I’m sorry but I cannot help you. I do not use the meebo widget myself and therefore I have not done any troubleshooting. In order to secure help you must post to the meebo support forum. If that does not provide you with an answer then you can contact wp.com staff on Monday between the hours of 8AM – 4PM (Pacific time) by using the “support” link on the top right hand corner of any admin side blog page. If those times are not workable for you, then you can email support@wordpress.com. Best wishes for a happy outcome.

  5. I do not have a list of blogs using the meebo widget. I assume if you use the support forum searchbox and type in “meebo” you will find other bloggers who are using it and can contact them directly. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/search.php?q=meebo
