13-83 technically should be indented one tab. Thanks for this widget! Very simple and easy to add.

When the chat is open I am unable to click anything on the page up to the level of the chat. Is there a way to sort this?

how can I make this open by default and collapse when the button is pressed?

line 13 in html, if I replace "panel-collapse collapse" with "panel-collapse body", it is open by default but I have to press the button twice for it to close. What do I have to modify to only have to press the button once.
