Skins are basically all saved preferences from a user represented by a (Hex-)string of 32 letters (a..f) and ciphers.

A Skin is a collection of saved preferences (like colors, fonts etc) which may be assigned to your client. Skin definitions are identified by an ID with a format similar to "5d97d370a6e3c9694b10f0db3b50c122".

Adding Skins[edit]

These are the steps needed to create a skin for Mibbit.

For the Widget[edit]

  1. Open the Widget-Manager in a new tab or window (right-click) to create/edit your special widget skin
  2. Fill username, password etc in "Create your chat widget" (and remember them!), click [Create an account]
  3. Enter your email address etc in "My Account" (in case you forget your pw we can send it there)
  4. Open the "Settings" page, edit server and #channel and copy & paste the created code into your webpage (see iframe or popup)
  5. Optionally click the "Skins" link and load an external skin (an example or from another widget id, the main client uses a different database)
  6. Open the "Preferences" page and modify colours and other settings, click [Save all changes] (no need to reload the manager)
  7. Open or reload your widget to see the effect of your changes

See also Uri parameters.

Make sure that if you publish it, not to have any private info in it (like a password in an alias)!

  2. Create an account or Login (if you have not done so already)
  3. Open the "Prefs" page
