    I can think of two options for adding a shoutbox to your site:

    1)Get a “shoutbox” plugin like WP Wall or Wordspew. I’ve never used either of these plugins but they both receive high rankings. Looks like they will create a “shoutbox” widget on your sidebar.

    2)Sign up for a free shoutbox site. (just google “shoutbox” and you’ll have plenty to choose from.) Set up your account and get your shoutbox code. Add a text widget to your sidebar and put the shoutbox code inside that widget.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply. I’ll give it a go.
