Customizing the chat widget button with CSS.

You can customize the look of chat button using a custom CSS file.

Customizing with CSS

CSS is short for Cascading Style Sheets and is a set of specific rules applied to the style of the elements which are being read by the browser. You can't create new rules, but you can modify their properties.

Note

CSS stylesheet is applied only to WebChat widget button. All customisations of chat widget can be done in Channels > Web > Customize. All the changes are applied on the fly, no need to replace the code on your website.
