Style Customization

Bar styles can be as simple as selecting a preset from our many theme and color options, or as fine tuned as you want to match your site just perfectly. Each of our 35+ presets can be fully customized by you to give your Skysa bar a unique touch.

Member Integration

The Skysa bar will automatically detect several different common website member systems and integrate with them to allow for a seamless user experience. If there are not any supported member systems on the site, all social apps will still work using the bar's own fallback simple registration and log in.

SSL Support

The Skysa bar automatically detects SSL secured web pages making sure not to break the secure status of your web page. On Pro plans, the bar is able to fully load using secure connections allowing every app to work normally on all the secure pages of your site.

Display Options

You decide exactly how the Skysa bar and its associated apps display. It can show at the top or bottom of your site. It can be set to hide until the page is scrolled. The bar can display across the entire width of your site, or as a corner menu only showing active apps.

Moderation

Skysa bar apps such as chat room and comments allow in-app moderation. Setting up moderators is simple and allows you to quickly setup any member on your site with moderation control.

White Label

The White Label option removes all Skysa branding; including our Powered by Skysa which is displayed in the footer of App windows.

Live Support Chat

With the Live Support Chat app, you can engage directly with your members and visitors and be available for them to contact you in real-time. Not only is it a simple and elegant solution for your visitors, it was also built from the ground up with operator and site owner's experiences in mind. We have found that these experiences are often lacking in this type of service and set out to make sure that was not the case with ours. You will find that the Live Support Chat operator interface has the powerful features you want; all designed in a way to make them easy and intuitive to use without consulting a help or how-to guide.
