Chat Widgets

I spent the better part of this evening researching chat widgets and trying to get them to work on this installation of WP without any plugins. Unsuccessful I was. More for my personal reference but here’s a list:

  • Lync –does not have a widget or I couldn’t find it
  • Google Talk –turns out they discontinued the gadget
  • Y! Messenger Pingbox –does not embed
  • Digsby –does not embed
  • RumbleTalk –does not embed
  • Zoho –does not embed
  • ChatWing –does not embed

The problem seems to be that WP does not allow iframe, script, or object tags for security reasons… in the meantime, if you want to chat, I’m in Lync!
