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 Widget-Manager (to create your special widget skin)
  2. Fill username, password in "Create a new chat widget", write them down and keep it safe, click [Register]
  3. Open the "Prefs" page
  4. Optionally (reset and) load an external skin through the "Load A Skin" button near the "Save and Close" button.
  5. Modify colors and other settings, click [Save and close]
  6. Open "Preview", choose the parameters, click the generated widget link for a preview in a new window/tab
  7. Copy & paste the link into your web-page (as iframe or popup)

example: http://widget.mibbit.com/?settings=42c110f3cbbaea489c0b0e40a40e6e18&... ("simple style").

See also Widget iFrame and URI Creator and Uri_parameters for the meanings of the values.

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 https://www.mibbit.com/chat/ (for daily use)
  2. Register or login (if you have not done so already)
  3. Open the "Prefs" page
  4. Optionally (reset and) 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.
Some settings (like "Auto away ...") require a reload to take effect, others (like ...width) need a "/clear".
