Adding Chatterbox to a Xanga page

A lot of people who use Chatterbox have Xanga pages. Here is a short and simple guide to adding Chatterbox as a sidebar to your Xanga page.

Step 1:
First, you need to sign up for a Chatterbox. (If you already have a Chatterbox, skip to step 2.) Sign up by going here, and filling out a few things about yourself. Click "gimme" , and if you filled it all in OK, you will get a page with some HTML code in a text box. Select all that code with your mouse, and copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl + C, or right-click and select "Copy" from the menu). Skip to step 3.

Step 2:
You need to get the code for your existing Chatterbox. Go to the Chatterbox edit page, and log in with your Chatterbox ID and password. One of the things you will see on the next page, will be some HTML code in a text box. Select all that code with your mouse, and copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl + C, or right-click and select "Copy" from the menu).

Step 3:
Go to your Xanga page. If you are not yet logged in to Xanga, you will need to log in now.

Step 4:
On the left side of the page, find the "Look & feel" link under the "Edit" heading. Click it to go to the "Look and feel of your site" page.

Step 5:
TIP:
We often get asked how you set the title of your Chatterbox. The answer is simple - it's the "Title" box of the Javascript module on your Look and feel page!
Scroll down untill you see a heading "JavaScript Module". Right under it will be a small text input field, and a large text area. In the small field marked "Title", type in "Chatterbox", or "Chat with me", or whatever you want it to say above your Chatterbox. Delete whatever is in the large text area, and paste the contents of the clipboard into it (by clicking in the text area and pressing Ctrl + V, or right-clicking and selecting "Paste"). The text area should now have the same code you copied to the clipboard in step 1 or 2.

Step 6:
Scroll to the bottom of the look and feel page, and click "Save Changes" to go back to your Xanga page. You should now see your Chatterbox on the left side of your Xanga page. If you do not, make sure you followed the steps of this guide carefully and exactly.

Step 7 (Optional):
Now that you have Chatterbox all set up, you can go over to the edit page to customize it. Chatterbox does its best to fit your page without any tweaking, but there's always room for improvement... The edit page lets you change your timezone, layout, colors, smiley settings and more! Plus, if you ever lose your Chatterbox code, you can get it again there.

Did It Work?
If you still have problems, go submit a trouble report, making sure to including your public Xanga page address (remember, we can't see pages that have "private" in the URL), and what the problem is, and we'll try to help you.
