Reviews

Excellent plugin & easy to set up

I tried some other Facebook chat plugins and they messed up Site origin’s pagebuilder. No problems with this one plus is super easy to set up. Tested fine on android and windows chrome and firefox.

Feature request: Would be great to be able to edit the text on the chatbox. Can’t see an option for it.

Beautiful

Works perfectly! Easy to install, Thanks Sam Carlton.
