How to set up a mibbit widget for you guild website
Step by step guide to setting up an IRC Mibbit widget for use on your guild website to connect to Neverendless IRC.


Step 1: Set up an account on Mibbit
Go to https://widgetmanager.mibbit.com/ and click the "Create free Widget" button. The Create Widget page will ask for a few things to get you started so go ahead and fill that out. It looks like this:

You will need:

A name for the widget.
A password so you can log in and change the widget settings if you need to.
Your email address to verify the account.
The URL of your website.

The widget name will also be the name of your Mibbit widget magager account.


Step 2: Setting up the widget
Now that your widget account is set up, you need to tell the widget where to connect and what channel to use.

Where it says 'Choose IRC Server' select the option to enter server name and type:

irc.neverendless-wow.com

For the IRC channel, type in your guild's channel name.

It will look something like this:

577x289px 25KiB

Channel names must start with the # symbol and can only contain plain letters and numbers. They cannot contain spaces.

Use underscores (_) or hyphens (-) instead of spaces.


Step 3: Verify your settings.
Click the 'Update links & preview' button and then click on 'Connect' in the preview window. Once connected you should see two tabs at the top of the widget, one for your guild channel and one for #neverendless-wow.

If you don't see both tabs or cannot connect, double check the settings.

Everyone that joins Neverendless IRC automatically joins the #neverendless-wow channel in addition to any channel the widget specifies. This is not something you can change.


Step 4: Add the widget to your website.
Copy and paste the code provided in the green box to your guild's website and save the changes to your website. The green box is located above the preview widget:

More information on URL Parameters for the widget can be found here

Step 5: Registering your channel.
If you have not previously done so, it is recommended that you register your channel with chanserv on IRC to prevent takeovers and theft of the channel. The IRC command to register a channel is:

/msg chanserv REGISTER channel-name discription

Additional help for using chanserv and setting user ranks can be found with:
/msg chanserv HELP

You need to have a registered name to use chanserv commands. To register your name, use:
/msg nickserv REGISTER password

You should now have a functional widget on your guild website and your very own channel for use by you and your guild on Neverendless IRC. Happy chatting!
