How to add Tawk Live Chat

Embed a Tawk Live Chat widget on your uSkinned Site Builder for Umbraco website using one of the many embed HTML options.

We use Tawk Live Chat on the uSkinned website (look, there is it in the bottom right corner — say Hello 👋) and we recommend it to everyone who needs to enable live chat. You can even download an app to your phone so you can Live Chat via your phone with customers.

There are plenty of other Live Chat widgets out there (Elfsight, Live ChatHub SpotIntercom) a quick search on Google will help you find the one that suits your needs.

Generate your Live Chat widget code

Step 1

Sign up for Tawk Live Chat. Verify your account and log into your dashboard.

Step 2

Go to your dashboard settings > Locate your Live Chat widget code.

The code should look similar to this:

<!--Start of Script-->
<script type="text/javascript">
var Tawk_API=Tawk_API||{}, Tawk_LoadStart=new Date();
var s1=document.createElement("script"),s0=document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0];
s1.src=' UNIQUE ID HERE/default';
<!--End of Script-->

Copy the chat widget code provided.

Bonus step

Embed your Live Chat widget code on a specific page

If you would prefer to only show your Tawk Live Chat widget on certain pages then instead of pasting the code into Global Settings > Scripts, you can go to any page in the CMS and find the "Scripts" tab. You can then paste the code into the field on the page you would like to see the widget appear.
