Allow adding chat to external web pagesChecking this option lets you place the chat widget on any web page. Actually placing the chat widget on a web page requires modifying the page's source. You need to place there the HTML code in the gray box below the checkbox
Web sites where the chat widget is allowedYou can limit the placement of the chat widget to sites that you specify. Chats initiated from other sites (potentially not belonging to you) will not be accepted
Allow anonymous accessChecking this checkbox allows customers to chat with you from an external web page without logging in - they will be visible to you as Anonymous Chat User. If this checkbox is cleared, users will be required to log in (or register - see below) before starting a chat

The default value of the welcome message is shared between projects and can be customized globally (not per project) in the Translate and Customize Chat configuration page.

Note that the overriden welcome message cannot be localized - it is the same for all user languages.

Greeting MessageThis option lets you display an automatic "invitation" chat bubble before the customer starts typing their first message in a conversation. This message can be just a greeting, it can contain short instructions, or any other piece of introductory information.
