Original Post

Hey, KR155E. I have a small request for the IRC page:

Some of us have handles that are too long for EFnet’s (unreasonable, IMO) name length limit. Since there’s already a field in our user profile for “IRC screen name”, would it be very hard to have the Mibbit applet default to using it instead of our full user name?

A great request RunnerPack. I have just implemented this feature, was not hard at all. πŸ™‚

Was it really easy, or did you just make it look that way? πŸ˜‰

Either way, it works great! Thanks!

Hehe, no it actually was that easy, since you can simply pass the default username to Mibbit as an URL query parameter. So I only had to grab a user’s IRC name from his profile instead of the username. And of course do a little check if it is set at all. πŸ™‚
