This feature has been requested in the past. Today I finally figured out how to do it!
The Live Chat is no longer available in the sidebar. I did this because if you have the pop out live chat open and browse the site you will get double sound notifications. Plus the site will load a little faster without having to load the Live Chat on every blog post. Also with this new pop out it’s more responsive.
There are 2 ways to open it, click the image in the side bar or go to the “Visit” drop down menu in the top right and click “Live Chat”. This specific link is available through out the whole site except where you write posts.
There is also a mobile friendly version, you can access it by opening the pop up window and then clicking the “Mobile Version” link. The direct link to the mobile chat is here if you want to bookmark it. Or access the mobile version of the site, go to the “Mobile Live Chat” page from the drop down menu then view the full version of the site. You need to be logged in of course.
On the Mobile Version at the bottom there are 2 large + and – links. Clicking those will expand or shrink the live chat so you can see or hide the comments in the Live Chat. It will save your size settings for the Live Chat in a cookie so when you come back later it will be the same size. Same goes for the non-mobile verison.
This way you can still browse all the portions of the website:
Plus keep the live chat open!
