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

Adding Skins

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

For the Widget

  1. Go to (for your special widget skin)
  2. Register as, e.g., "skinMyName" (remember your pw!)
  3. Open the "Prefs" page
  4. Optionally load an external skin through the "Load A Skin" button near the "Save and Close" button.
  5. Modify colors and other settings
  6. Copy the id (2nd line, which follows "id=") and click [Save and close]
  7. Use the id (from the "Prefs" page) for your own skin in the widget's uri "&settings=" or in the Widget-Creator

example: ("grayish style").

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

For the full Client

  1. Go to (for daily use)
  2. Register or login (if you have not done so already)
  3. Open the "Prefs" page
  4. Optionally load an external skin through the "Load A Skin" button near the "Save and Close" button.
  5. Modify colors and other settings to your liking.
  6. Click the "Save and Close" button.

Note: some settings (like "Auto away ...") require a reload to take effect, others (like ...width) need a "/clear".


Any tools that are useful for creating a skin shall be listed here.

  • The GUI widget code creator.[1] (not especially skin related though)
