How to create a chat room with dreamweaver

Updated March 23, 2017

Dreamweaver is a web development application owned by Adobe Systems that allows users to build websites using HTML coding. Putting a chat room on your site may bring in repeat visitors and increased traffic, which could translate into more profit for you if you are selling products or promoting a business on your website.

Go a website such as Chattersonline, Everywhere Chat or Chat Files.

Register for the chat site by putting in your contact information such as your username, password and e-mail address. Agree to the terms of service.

Choose a name for your chat room. Select the colours and chat room font. The site will generate an HTML code.

Drag your mouse over the code to highlight it and click "Copy." Go to your Dreamweaver website template. Paste the code between the body tags of your website's HTML. For Dreamweaver, which uses a what-you-see-is-what-you-get editor, paste the code into the "Code" or "Source" view. Pasting it into the layout view may add HTML tags to the chat code and cause an error.

Visit your site to make sure the chat room displays correctly.
