My students badly needed a way to get my instant help when blogging for the first time. I just wanted to put all things together in the class blog to make this experience easier and more interesting. I spent a lot of time trying some tools for live chatting, but unfortunately most of them need accounts. Of course, this is a kind of headache when it comes to signing up for many websites to do a certain task. Then, I found ChatButton. It is a free and easy-to-install chatbox for use anywhere. 

 Why ChatButton?
  1. Your visitors don't need to sign up to chat on your blog or website.
  2. You can customize your chatbox to match your blog or website's colors and size.
  3. You can generate HTML code to embed your chatbox into your blog or website in a few minutes.
  4. You can turn sounds on or off. This feature helps you to be notified when someone sends his or her message. 
  5. You can clear messages and username.
