WordSpew will only work in WordPress blogs version 1.5 or higher
Put the folder labeled "wordspew" in your plugins folder. This is located at /wp-content/plugins/.
Browse to your plugins manager in the admin section of your blog. Activate Jalenack's Wordspew plugin. This will automatically create a table in your database that the plugin will use for its content.
Now you have to choose where you want the shoutbox to show on your blog. I suggest putting it in your sidebar. To edit the sidebar, go to /wp-content/themes/yourtheme/sidebar.php . Then place this snippet:
in the template. This php function will print the shoutbox. Generally, follow the convention that other sidebar items use. Never put the function within its own
ul> tags. Most wordpress sidebars use unordered lists (
ul>) to organize their content. You probably want to put it in its own list item. So to do this, you would insertLive Shoutbox
<?php jal_get_shoutbox(); ?>
After the where you want it to go. Just to make sure, try validating your html and make sure you got it right. If you can't figure it out, you know who to call!
And now, enjoy!
