How to Install the Gobot Widget (a third-party livechat and chatbot app) on your Wix Site

You are almost there! A few quick steps and Gobot will be up and running on your Wix site. You only need to complete these steps once and Gobot will be able to run on all the pages of your Wix site.

  • Step 1: Sign up for a Gobot account here.  If you already have a Gobot account, proceed to step 2.
  • Step 2: Login to Gobot and copy the custom code snipppet for your bot.  You will need to paste this code snippet in Wix, which we detail in the next step.  You only need to do this one time and it will apply to all of the bots you ultimately create on Gobot.
    • Enter the requested information in the Gobot signup form (if you are creating a new account) or the Gobot login form (if you already have an account).  Once you are in Gobot, click Publish towards the bottom of the screen, followed by Install in the popup window, followed by Copy to Clipboard. Ok, now that you have the Gobot code snippet we will go to Wix to paste it in your code.
  • Step 3: Follow these Wix steps to paste your Gobot code snippet:
    1. Go to Settings in your Wix site's dashboard.
    2. Click the Tracking & Analytics tab under Advanced Settings.
    3. Click + New Tool and select Custom from the dropdown. 
    4. Set up your custom code:
      1. Enter your custom code.
      2. Select the relevant domain.
        Note: This option will appear only if you have multiple domains.
      3. Enter a name for your custom code. 
      4. Add Code to Pages: Select which pages to add your code to.  Generally speaking we recommend that you select the All Pages and Load Once options as there is no reason to limit the code to select pages.  However, you can also opt to include the code only on select pages.
    5. Place Code in: Select where the code snippet in placed in your site's code. Select the "Body - end" option.
    6. Click Apply.

Congrats! If you have any questions, access this Wix guide.  Your Gobot is now officially connected to Wix. Go back to Gobot, select one of the pre-built bots in the left hand panel (chosen for you based on the goal you indicated during signup) or build a bot from scratch. Click on Publish towards the bottom of the page and then Close and Make Live.  Next time you visit your Wix site your new bot will welcome you!
