Where do I get the Hello Bar code for this plugin?

You can get your own Hello Bar account from HelloBar.com for free.
Once you have your account, create a Hello Bar and simply paste your code into the plugin’s text area.

Should I load my Hello Bar in the header or the footer of my WordPress site?

This depends on your site. We recommend loading the script in the footer but if your page takes very long to load, the header might be a better location.


Great tool!

I’ve been using Hello Bar on my blog (www.fourweekmba.com) in the last couple of months and I found it pretty useful for several reasons. The most are the fact that you can start building your audience or add CTAs that improve the shareability of your content by making it more prone to go viral. It is a great tool for its flexibility, simplicity and the fact that makes you do a lot of testing effectively!
