Google Talk Widget

Adds WordPress sidebar widget to show Google chatback badge on the website and offer visitors web chat through Google Talk instant messaging network.

** Note to previous users of 1.0: ** This is essentially a new plugin. The old chat badge can be added to your sidebar by copy and pasting google's badge code into a normal text widget.

Using Google Talk, you can now simulate a professional live chat system on your website! This plugin allows further flexibility over Google Talk by allowing customizeable online/offline status badges, as well as wrapping the chat window in a smooth overlay effect, avoiding the need for ugly popups.

New features in 2.0:

  • Multi-account fallback (when one goes offline, another available account will be used).
  • Google Talk client is wrapped in a overlay widget.
  • AJAX online status checking - visitors don't need to refresh the page when you come back online.
  • Customizeable online and offline icons
  • Customizeable link for offline clicks (e.g. your contact form)
  • Template tag and shortcode available
  • Online status caching for higher traffic volumes.
