Just a quick post and slightly off the topic of social media, but I have noticed a couple of people finding my blog lately using the search terms “Snapengage + thesis”. I have also had a couple of people contact me now wanting to know how to install Snapengage on the Thesis theme, so I thought I would make a quick tutorial for those people.

Just some background though..

Snapengage (affiliate link) is some awesome live chat software I have on my site which helps me connect with my readers when I am on-line. You can read more about it in a post I wrote on engaging customers with live chat and Snapengage. It is an amazing piece of software which connects me with potential customers every day.

Thesis (affiliate link)  is an awesome WordPress Theme which is highly customizable for both experience and no experience WordPress users and has some solid SEO features.

Installing Snapengage on your thesis WordPress blog.

  1. Head on over to the Snapengage site, sign-up and get you snippet of JavaScript code to install on your site
  2. On your WordPress site with Thesis installed head to your custom file editor and open you custom functions.php file
  3. Insert this code

// Snapengage code

function snapengage_code() {?>

Your Snapengage script here


add_action ('thesis_hook_before_footer' , 'snapengage_code');

And that’s it! Once you have save that (and assuming you have set up a chat client) you will be off and racing.
