Method 3. Insert JivoChat HTML code on an HTML box
Known issues for Method 3 installation
Due to the configuration of some WiX pages we have some restrictions for the chat to work on WIX sites:
1.Facebook integration is not working on WIX.
2.Wix does not support our chat mobile version, so it will not be shown on mobile devices.
3.The chat integration with Google analytics is not working on WIX.
If those issues are not a problem for you and you still prefer to install with this method:
First, open the WIX Website Editor and open the Main page there.
Next, press the “Add” button on the left panel and choose HTML code widget in the “More” section:
Now you need to copy our chat code. The JivoChat code is available in the JivoChat app, in the Installation section: Manage -> Channels -> Settings -> Installation.
Just copy it and go back to the Wix Website Editor.
Press Settings button or “Enter code” bubble above the widget image.
Paste the code into the “Add your code field…” and press the update button.
Next, you should change the size of the widget. Set it in the right panel or drag the borders of the widget. You should set the size to 420x500.
Also, please check the box “Show on all pages”.
Now, right-click with your mouse over the widget and select “Pin to screen”.
You can choose the chat window position in the opened window and pin it to the right bottom corner for example. Also, please set all offsets to “0”.
Press “Publish” button at the top right corner and that’s all. You can open your website, our chat window should be shown there.
