Can I make my own custom AC button to display on my website?

Yes. To do this you need to make two separate graphics. One for when you have AnswerChat® enabled and one for when AnswerChat® is disabled.

If you are able to host your own images on a web server:

Method 1 - Dynamic (Disabled & Enabled)
(Note, you must be the account administrator to make this change)
  • Upload the two images to your web server
  • Right-Click your AnswerChat® Icon
  • Select "Settings..."
  • Locate the domain you wish to change the buttons for
  • Click the "Button" link
  • Enter the URL for the ENABLED image in the On graphic: text box
  • Enter the URL for the DISABLED image in the Off graphic: text box
  • Click "Save Button Settings"

Method 2 - Static Image/Text/Object
  • Upload the two images to your web server
  • Right-Click your AnswerChat® Icon
  • Select "Settings..."
  • Locate the domain you wish to change the buttons for
  • Click the "Button" link
  • Click the link that says "Click here to view the HTML code that you need to have in your web pages to display buttons."
  • Copy the second chunk of code to your clipboard.. it will look like this:
    Code: Select all
    <!--AnswerChat text link start-->
    <script language='javascript' src='http://www.answerchat.com/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NUM/ac-href.js'></script>
    Place text link here</a>
    <!--AnswerChat text link end - Copyright © 2001-2008 Alpha Media, Inc., All Rights Reserved.-->

  • Modify the code to reflect your account number, and object to click in order to bring up the AnswerChat® window
    Code: Select all
    <!--AnswerChat text link start-->
    <script language='javascript' src='http://www.answerchat.com/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NUM/ac-href.js'></script>
    Click Here to Chat with Us!</a>
    <!--AnswerChat text link end - Copyright © 2001-2008 Alpha Media, Inc., All Rights Reserved.-->

    or
    Code: Select all
    <!--AnswerChat text link start-->
    <script language='javascript' src='http://www.answerchat.com/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NUM/ac-href.js'></script>
    <img src="http://www.domain.com/images/image.gif"></a>
    <!--AnswerChat text link end - Copyright © 2001-2008 Alpha Media, Inc., All Rights Reserved.-->


If you are NOT able to host your own images on a web server:
E-mail your two graphics to info@answerchat.com and we will e-mail you back when they are ready to be used.
