Block Name: Facebook Chat Plugin
Author: Ernest Allen Buffington
Block Type: Invisible
Core: PHP-Nuke Evolution 3.0.1a <> 3.0.1b
One of the interesting features of the US version of PHP-Nuke Evolution Xtreme is the ability to have invisible blocks. We used this feature when we made the Facebook Chat Plugin block as it does not need any tables or extended decorations.
The Chat Plugin allows you to integrate your Messenger experience directly into your portal/website. This allows your customers or website members to interact with you anytime with the same personalized, rich-media experience that they get in their regular Facebook Messenger.
The Chat Plugin automatically loads recent chat history between the person and your website or portal, meaning recent interactions with your website or page on messenger.com, in the Messenger app, or in the Chat Plugin on your website will be visible. This helps create a single experience for your site members or customers and enables you to continue the conversation even after they have left your web portal. No need to capture their information to follow up, just use the same conversation in Messenger.
The Chat Plugin supports modern popular desktop and mobile browsers except Messenger in-app browsers and Internet Explorer.
