... and much much more.
Note for using iframe
Since v1.2.7, you may embed the iframe with no cross domain restrictions, however there will be no support for iframe embed as this feature is out of the scope of WordPress.
To embed the iframe in a non wordpress website (static html maybe?), paste the following code in the footer:
<iframe id="awesome_live_chat_frame" src="http://example.com/wp-content/plugins/awesome-live-chat/frontend/frame.php" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="position: fixed; bottom: 0; right: 0; margin: 0; width: auto;"> </iframe> <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script> <script src="//example.com/wp-content/plugins/awesome-live-chat/js/iframeResizer.min.js"></script> <script src="//example.com/wp-content/plugins/awesome-live-chat/frontend/js/iframe.js"></script>
example.com is the root url to your wordpress website where you have installed the plugin. If you already have jQuery loaded, you may remove the jQuery include from the above code but make sure you include the required scripts after jQuery.
