Is there a way to put javascript in the URL portion of a WordPress menu item? I have a live chat function on my site, and I am supposed to put this code onto the site to make a link to open the live chat (as suggested here).

<!-- BEGIN OLARK CHAT LINK -->
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="olark('api.box.expand')">
    Click here to chat!
</a>
<!-- END OLARK CHAT LINK -->

The client wants the link in the utility nav bar, which was created used a WordPress menu in the WordPress dashboard. But when I copy and paste javascript:void(0);" onclick="olark('api.box.expand') into the URL box in the WordPress dashboard, it just disappears and the link remains inactive.

Something I read said that maybe I could put a custom class on the link in question and then write a Javascript function that fires when the link with that class is clicked. I tried that, though, and I couldn’t get it to work. I’m don’t know much Javascript, so it’s possible I was writing it entirely wrong.

Does anyone know how to do this? I would like to do it without using a plugin.
