How To Install Hello Bar Solo On a WordPress Site

After purchasing Hello Bar Solo, I found that there is hardly any documentation showing how to enable it on a WordPress blog. I have put together a nice YouTube tutorial that goes over every aspect of installing Hello Bar on a WordPress site. The video is embedded below.

You will need the following code for this tutorial:

function hellobar_scripts() {
wp_register_script( 'hellobar_solo_js', 'http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/hellobar-solo/hellobar.js');
wp_enqueue_script( 'hellobar_solo_js' );
}
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'hellobar_scripts');

function hellobar_styles() {
wp_register_style('hellobar_css', 'http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/hellobar-solo//hellobar.css');
wp_enqueue_style( 'hellobar_css');
}
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'hellobar_styles');

 

<script type="text/javascript">
new HelloBar( "Giveaway: Free Web Hosting Accounts From Zyma Technologies<a class='button' href='http://www.omegaweb.com/2012/10/giveaway-free-zyma-technologies-web-hosting-for-one-year/'>Enter To Win!</a>", {
showWait: 6000,
positioning: 'sticky',
barColor: '#bc0c0c',
borderSize: 0,
helloBarLogo: false,
transition: 'bouncy',
speed: 750,
}, 1.0 );
</script>

        • Hello Bar is great! Like I mentioned to Shalu above, Viper Bar is a good free alternative.

  3. I have seen this hello bar on many websites and I do like it but I am not using it at the moment. At some time point, I will use it since it seems like a great tool to attract the visitors to a particular page or post. Thanks for these instructions.

    • Hello Bar is great for gaining subscribers, generating links, and even affiliate sales. I recommend it 100% but at $30, it is a bit expensive. If you want to start with a free option, I used Viper Bar for a while. Not as many features, and it’s harder to edit, but it does the job.

    • I’m glad it helped. Was the video too fast-paced? I was trying to get everything in that I needed in under 15 minutes. The ending result is a somewhat fast-paced video. Even still, you can always rewind and watch again. Thanks!

  7. I’ve always wondered how I could get this done without messing up my html codes 🙂 Thanks for this informative guide, I regularly come up with promotions that I want to give emphasis on so this should do the job.

    • I’m glad this helped. Also, Hello Bar does not use HTML, it uses JavaScript, so installing it as a WordPress widget would not work well. The way I described in the video is the only way 🙂
