According to Meebo, all chat rooms will cease to work in October 2011.

Is there any other chat room widgets anyone can suggest and will there be a replacement widget for Yola?

Hello Jonesy_1102,

We will be removing the widget altogether. Once Meebo has been discontinued, this is what will happen:

1. Visitors will no longer be able to join any Meebo rooms - this includes private rooms as well as embedded public rooms.
2. Rooms embedded on other sites will disappear - the area occupied by the Meebo Widget will become blank.
3. All Meebo rooms will be removed from the Meebo buddy lists.

In light of this, we suggest that you start making preparations to begin utilizing another chat room so that the transition will not be as bumpy. You may want to try Meebo's other services such as CentralChat. You can also find other chat programs available in the Widgetbox Gallery.

Hello adonuchiha,

Widgetbox Gallery is one of the widgets we offer in the Sitebuilder. This widget has a whole host of things you can add to your site such as blogging tools, games, weather, news, social networking, etc. The great thing about using Widgetbox Gallery is that you don't have to try to create these tools, it's already done for you! Take a look around and try them out. I'm sure that you will find something that will be a great addition to have on your site. If this is something you'd like to try, please follow these steps:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page (you can find it in the Widget Collections folder).
2. A dialog box will open. Click on the category you'd like or use the search field if you would like to see more options.
3. Choose the widget you would like to use on your site and customize the settings.
4. Click on the green "Get Widget" button and it will be saved and added to your page.
5. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Sorry I don't have a site. I actually found this page when I was searching for a replacement for Meebo. They told me that it was a tough decision to remove the chat rooms.
