You can control the look/behavior of mibbit by calling it with various parameters in the uri (like .../?param1=value1&param2=value2&..., see examples):


don't use "&" instead of "&". It is not valid for uri parameters and might stop working in the future.

examples (just right-click and open in a new window for testing):

http://miburl.com/wGcgqD (new css parameter example for the start screens)

You can use the Widget-manager to create/preview a skin and the URI creator to create an iframe code snippet.

other valid entries:

  • 0 / 1 are also allowed for false / true

Main Client

In old links/bookmarks please replace "www.mibbit.com/chat" or "mibbit.com/chat" respectively with "chat.mibbit.com".

Passing parameters will result in a pre-filled connect form:

  • nick (if empty a random nick like "mib_3Zh5F4" will be presented)
  • channel (you even can submit a comma separated channel list like %23chat,%23test)
  • server (both, server and channel must be provided!)

alternatively you can use:

  • chat.mibbit.com/#channel (defaults to: @irc.mibbit.net)
  • chat.mibbit.com/#channel@your.server.blah
  • chat.mibbit.com/#channel@Network (as saved in our database)

Note: this works only if no autoconnects are enabled and doesn't work on some pages like twitter.com



or (used for the Firefox IRC handler):

  • url=<urlencoded irc://server/#channel>



Note: this will not work if networks allow mibbit only on certain servers/ports, e.g., EFnet: irc.umich.edu

other valid parameters:

  • debug=(default: false); true opens a Log-tab (/debug as command works as well)
