Hi there
I'd like to ad a simple, but sophisticated chat functionality to my site. What do you recommend?

I've read up on meebo on the forum, but all the info is quite old, is there a more uptodate tutorial I can use?

Hello Colleen,

Meebo's dead and has been removed.

There isn't an official chat widget recommended by Yola and you can certainly do a search to find such. Happy to look at any choices you make if you need some help.

Would Live!Zilla work? http://www.livezilla.net/installation...
Seems to you need to install it on your desktop and webserver before installing it on the site.
It's not my site, but my client's so I'm guessing they'd have to install it on their side?

This one would not work because it requires SSL certificate; FTP and MySQL through your hosting company. These are not available through Yola.

A local server system is probably not a good way to go as it would require the server to be online all the time.

Did you have any success with this?
I'd like to add the same but can't find anything either.

Have a look at www.offerchat.com. It does require a Yola paid for subscription not Yola Free, as it requires access to the head section of your site. It works well
