This module allows you to integrate the Zopim Chat service into your Magento installation in a quick way. You can sign in into Zopim from Magento backend, it will enable and automatically configure the basic configuration of your Zopim Widget.
Additionally, you can use the advanced configuration to configure all options available from the Zopim Dashboard but directly from your Magento installation and per store view if needed:
Chat Window theme (color, title, size, position)
Chat Badge (text, image, color)
Chat Bubble (title, color)
Concierge (title, byline, avatar picture)
Message Style (coming soon)
Minimized Chat Button (online and offline messages)
If you have an error 404 after install the extension and you get access to the configuration pages, do the followings:
Clear your cache, see the menu System > Cache Management
Login and logout from your backend to update the access control
Or after installation, save again the Administrator Role to get access to the configuration page of this module. Go to your Magento Backend, then Menu System > Permissions > Roles > Administrator and save again this role.
Just configure the key of your account by signin into your Zopim account from the Magento menu Zopim Chat > Account Setup to automatically set the basic configuration or go into the configuration System > Configuration > Diglin > Zopim Chat and fill manually the fields "Email Address" and "Key". If you don't have an account, you can get it one directly from the Magento configuration Zopim Chat page, thanks to the link or directly get one from Zopim Website.
If you do manually, you have to find this key. Go into the Zopim Dashboard then click on "Widget" in the sidebar and find the link "Embed Zopim Live Chat Widget. In the area where the html code is generated, you can find after //zopim.com/?xyzbufoisfgsigsgdgjbsk. Copy the text after the question mark '?' to the Magento configuration field for the "Key of your account".
If you have a customized template, check that you have getChildHtml('before_body_end') in files /frontend/mypackage/mytemplate/template/page/1column.phtml, 2columns-left.phtml, 2columns-right.phtml, 3columns.phtml and empty.phtml after getChildHtml('footer') Eventually you will need to copy the file app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/chat.xml in your layout template.
