Installation on Joomla

This guide will walk you through the process of adding the XAPP Chat Widget to your Joomla website. It's important to place the JavaScript snippet right before the closing </body> tag in your Joomla template or module to ensure it appears on every page.


  • Administrative access to your Joomla site.
  • Your unique key for the XAPP Chat Widget.

Installation Steps

Option 1: Adding to the Template

  1. Access the Template Editor

    • Log in to your Joomla administrator panel.
    • Navigate to Extensions > Templates > Templates.
    • Click on your current template's name to edit it.
  2. Edit the HTML

    • In the template editor, locate the index.php file.
    • Scroll to the bottom of this file and find the closing </body> tag.
  3. Insert the JavaScript Snippet

    • Insert the following snippet just before the closing </body> tag:

      Note! Please replace "YOUR_CHAT_KEY" with your actual widget key.

  4. Save Changes

    • Click Save or Save & Close to apply the changes.

Option 2: Using a Custom HTML Module

  1. Create a New Module

    • Navigate to Extensions > Modules.
    • Click New and select Custom HTML.
  2. Add the JavaScript Snippet

    • In the Custom HTML module, paste the JavaScript snippet:
    • Replace YOUR_UNIQUE_KEY with your provided key.
  3. Configure the Module

    • Assign the module to a position that is active on all pages, typically debug or a similar position.
    • Set the status to Published.
    • Assign to All Pages under Menu Assignment.
  4. Save and Publish

    • Click Save or Save & Close to activate the module.

Verifying the Installation

  • Visit your website to confirm the XAPP Chat Widget appears and functions correctly on all pages.
  • If the widget does not appear, check if the unique key is correctly inserted and if the module/template changes are saved.


  • Widget Not Displaying: Ensure the module is published, assigned to all pages, and the key is correct.
  • Check for Conflicts: Sometimes, other extensions or scripts can conflict with the widget. Check for JavaScript errors in the browser's console.
