You can control the look/behavior of mibbit by calling it with various parameters in the uri ("GET"):


  • server= (default: irc.mibbit.com)
  • channel= (default: %23chat, on some servers you even can submit a comma separated channel list like %23chat,%23test%20keyNotSecretAnymore)

You can ask for random digits in nicknames. Use a ? which should be encoded as %3f, e.g.,

  • nick=prefix_%3F%3F%3F%3F
    • Note:  %3F is a question mark, which is used to denote random alpha-numerical key.
  • forcePrompt=false (false works only on approved servers like irc.mibbit.com)
  • promptPass=true (ask for a password)
  • authmethod=nickserv (default, or pass)
  • authkey= (default: empty, see Widget#Securing_your_widget )
  • noServerTab= (default: true)
  • noServerNotices= (default: false)
  • noServerMotd= (default: false)
  • customprompt=Welcome%20To%20MyChat
  • customloading=maybe%20you%20need%20to%20close%20other%20Mibbit%20windows%20first...
  • charset= (default: UTF-8)
  • settings=id (id taken from a mibbit full account: "prefs", see Skins)

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


You can use the Widget-Creator to create a link or an iframe code snippet now.

full version

these will only result in a pre-filled connect form:

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



or (used for the new Firefox 3 irc handler):

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