Protocol Autoselect

Whenever you link to a web resource that is opened in Mibbit, you can omit the "http[s]:" from the URL. Mibbit will automatically re-add it as necessary. Note that this only happens when Mibbit deals with the URLs internally. If will not automatically add the protocol when you send a message through the server.

This is useful because it prevents browsers from complaining about mixed protocols when a resource is loaded over SSL and another resource is not, and for allowing you to use both http://(chat/widget).mibbit.com and https://(chat/widget).mibbit.com.

Be default, the URLs for Sounds use protocol autoselect.

Direct Channel Linking

There are three methods for linking directly to an IRC Channel.

Direct to Mibbit Client

  • Default: http://mibbit.com/#<channel_name> - uses default mibbit server and selected channel (example: http://mibbit.com/#chat)
  • Specify Different Server: http://mibbit.com/#<channel_name>@<server_address> - You can include the IRC server after an @, with an optional port. (example: http://mibbit.com/#chat@irc.mozilla.org )

Note: the methods above do not work in IE.

IRC:// ULRs

This standard is actually used in links. For instance, the Mozilla developer wiki gives links that might be useful. For Mibbit, it is implemented by placing the URL http://mibbit.com/?server=<SERVER>&channel=<CHANNEL> in the address bar or placing IRC://irc.server.net/channel in as a link. It is simple in and of itself, and while there are other parts, they have yet to be used in a practical manner. If the person makes Mibbit their default IRC Client in Firefox, any IRC:// link on the web goes to Mibbit. The Chatzilla extension overwrites this unless the user changes specific about:config preferences, and other clients can open the links, if they support IRC:// links. Thus, the IRC:// method is preferred over others.

Note: Any autoconnect set in your Mibbit account overrides the URI parameters.

Main Client users: Ready to use links are provided if you click "Menu" when you are in your channel tab. There is an entry "Link to channel".
