The channel key should not be displayed in the uri[edit]

that's why the backend sends the key to the server! Contact: tech@mibbit.com

Choose server?[edit]

Is it possible to connect to for example irc.freenode.net instead of to the mibbit.com server? If so, please document. 82.204.3.218 11:07, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I have a channel on Freenode and I wanted to use mibbit to put it on my site. Is that possible?
yes, e.g., http://widget.mibbit.com/?server=irc.freenode.net&channel=%23yourCh&nick=you , see Uri_parameters
freenode decided to block Mibbit :( --Hercule 13:40, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

MediaWiki extension[edit]

MinuteElectron at my request created a MediaWiki extension that allows connecting to a preconfigured server/channel called Mibbit. Not really an original name, I know :). documentation, implementation. Siebrand 15:36, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

How to get the object trick to work with IE aswell[edit]

e107 is a real pain and the only thing that would work is the object trick, so I tried it and my one friend suggested using <embed> within the <object> tags, so I did and played around a bit with it. It works for Firefox and IE now using the following code:

<object id="chat" type="text/html" width="500" height="380" data=" http://widget.mibbit.com/index.html?server=irc.deepspace.org&channel=%23chatz">
<embed src="http://embed.mibbit.com/?server=irc.deepspace.org&channel=%23chatz" width="500" height="380"></embed></object>

Hope this is useful to someone :) --Trixar za 18:00, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Iframes and the "strict" doctype[edit]

As I understand it, "iframe" tags are banned in strict HTML. Shouldn't we be recommending the use of a transitional doctype to overcome the IE bug? It appears to solve the problem just as well. --Jcpren 12:17, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
