Here an example how to integrate the Mibbit widget into your site[edit]

<?PHP // stored as, e.g., "myMibbit.php"; this is just an example! 
// Please DON'T use this code if you don't fully understand it!
 session_start(); // and similar stuff  
 $nick   = empty($_SESSION['user_name']) ? 'Wdg' : $_SESSION['user_name'];
 $server = "irc.synirc.net"; // default: irc.mibbit.net
 $room   = "MibChat"; // w/o # or %23 !
//(^- above vars only for this example) 
 $uri = "https://widget.mibbit.com/" .
 "?nick=$nick_%3F%3F" . // each %3F(=?) will be replaced by a random digit 
 "&customprompt=Welcome%20to%20$server/$room" .
 "&customloading=maybe%20you%20need%20to%20close%20other%20Mibbit%20windows%20first..." .
 "&settings=c76462e5055bace06e32d325963b39f2"; // etc.
 if (!empty($room))    {$uri .= '&channel=%23' . $room;}  
 if (!empty($server )) {$uri .= '&server='     . $server;}  
 // IE needs a proper header:
?><!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html><head><title>my chat on 
<?php echo empty($server)  ? 'irc.mibbit.net' : $server; ?></title>
<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8'/>
body {font:93% verdana,sans-serif; background:#999; color:#fff;}
iframe {
  width: 97%;
  height: 400px /* "%" doesn't work for height in strict mode! */;
<h3>advanced embedded mibbit widget example</h3>
<iframe  src="<?PHP echo $uri; ?>" frameborder="0">
 [Your user agent does not support frames or is currently configured
 not to display frames. However, you may want to open the
 <A href="<?PHP echo $uri; ?>"
 target="_blank"> chat in a new browser window ...</A>]
<br>(no spaces, interpunctuation or leading ciphers in your /nick name)
<h4>type /help to learn about special commands</h4>

if you link/open this in a new window you avoid unintentional leaving the chat when hitting the back button/key:

<a href="myMibbit.php" target="_blank">myMibbit</a>

Here's a safe and easy way to integrate the Mibbit widget with your PHP enabled website[edit]

Just copy and paste the following code, into any one of your PHP scripts, where you would like the Mibbit widget to be shown - Provided by URChat - OzJD 21:55, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

 //- Begin config of Mibbit widget - Edit below as required.
 $mibbitframe['widgeturi']="http://widget.mibbit.com/"; #Only change this if Mibbit Widget URL changes (Unlikely) - Do not add a "?".
 $mibbitframe['height']="600px"; #Set this to the desired height of Mibbit widget
 $mibbitframe['width']="800px"; #Set this to the desired width of Mibbit widget
 $mibbit['authmethod']="nickserv"; #Set this to the nickname authentication method (as per Mibbit widget specs)
 $mibbit['autoConnect']="false"; #Set this to true if you would like Mibbit to automatically connect (Not recommended)
 $mibbit['channel']="#Main"; #Set this to the room(s) you would like the user to join, if more than one, separate by comma ie. #Main,#Test
 $mibbit['charset']="UTF-8"; #Set this to the default character set (Recommended: UTF-8)
 $mibbit['customloading']="Connecting to a random URChat server"; #Set this to a custom message displayed to user whilst attempting to connect
 $mibbit['customprompt']="Welcome to URChat"; #Set this to a custom message displayed on the initial Mibbit widget screen
 $mibbit['debug']="false"; #Set to true to show debug window (not recommended for live websites)
 $mibbit['nick']="Guest_?????"; #Set this to the default nickname, a "?" generates a random number
 $mibbit['noServerMotd']="false"; #Set to true to hide the server MOTD file
 $mibbit['noServerNotices']="false"; #Set to true to hide server notices
 $mibbit['noServerTab']="false"; #Set to false to show the server tab in Mibbit widget

 $mibbit['server']="irc.urchat.net"; #Set this to your server
 $mibbit['settings']=""; #Set this to your Mibbit widget preferences settings key (if you have one)
 foreach ($mibbit as $key => $value) {
 echo "<iframe name=\"chatFrame\" style=\"height:".$mibbitframe['height'].";width:".$mibbitframe['width'].";\" frameborder=\"0\" src=\"".$mibbitframe['widgeturi']."?".$mibbitframe['widgetparams']."\"></iframe>";
