Users can change their nickname by simply clicking on the existing name and entering a new one in the dialog provided.

The setting to 'Show Your Nick' is off by default for all accounts. To switch it on edit the 'Chat Input' section of Preferences in either the Main Client (for one user) or the Widget (for all users of that Widget). Choose a 'Nick Color' in the adjacent box if required.

To do this you need a registered account on either the Main Client or the Widget.
