Smallchat for WordPress

Description

Easily add the Smallchat client to a WordPress site, allowing visitors to talk to teams via Slack.

The official installation instructions from Smallchat are to install a plugin which allows you to add arbitrary JS to your site. This plugin loads only the Smallchat embed JS code, instead, which is useful for environments where there may be restrictions on the plugins allowed to be installed.

Installation

Prequisites

Before using this plugin you need to add Smallchat to Slack. After you\’ve added Smallchat to Slack, you can get your client ID from the embed code.

Configuration

  1. Activate the plugin
  2. Navigate to WP Admin > Settings > Smallchat.
  3. Add your client ID

After that the Smallchat client will appear on the front end for non-admin, non-editor users, and in the WP Customizer.

As the developer of this plugin, I think I did a good job. Not a great or amazing job; but not a bad or dismal job either. Just a good job. The thing does what I intended it to do (inject Smallchat in a configurable way) and nothing I didn't intend it to do. I think the developer could be a bit more responsive in the support forum, but frankly I don't think he checks his email often. Glad to see the original author is still supporting this project after 5 years of development! Wow!
