Account and Registration issues.
This guide applies to using mibbit screen (client) while on mibbit server.
A "Mibbit account" is 'client-side.' It's for saving your settings in the mibbit interface in browser. An account doesnt directly deal with the server. You make an account at the Create an Account button in mibbit screen.
A "registered nick" is 'server-side.' It's a nickname registered to the server. It pertains to channel privileges.
To register a nick, type: /msg NickServ REGISTER <your password> <your email>
You can just copy and paste these commands from here, but add your email & password etc.
(Check "General IRC" section on how to perform commands.)
Now you want to "identify", i.e. tell the server you really own your nick. To identify with a nick, type: /msg NickServ IDENTIFY <your password>. You have to have your registered nick selected.To change your nick, type: /nick <New Nick>
When you type the ID command, check server tab ("mibbit"), it should say "You are now recognized". If it doesn't, perhaps you don't have your registered nick selected. You could try registering whatever nick you have currently selected, and use that.
Atop mibbit screen, click account.
Under the heading IRC Server details, fill out a horizontal row of fields.
Server: Type in: "irc.mibbit.com" [NOTE: do not use .net. use .com]
Nick: <your registered nickserv Nick>
Pass: <nickserv password>
Auth Method: "NickServ" (leave as is)
When you fill those 3 fields, click "Add" (at right), then "Save and close" (at bottom).
Type this into one row of fields:
Server = irc.mibbit.com [its now .com, not .net]
Channels = <leave blank>
Auto-Connect = Yes
Then click "Add" and "Save and close".
This is a good foundation. It connects you to server and runs auto-ID commands as soon as you open mibbit.
You can add channels as shown, and affect auto-connect settings as you wish.
Put a space between channel name and pass. E.g. "cool" and "people"
What all that should do: When you first open mibbit screen, it will connect you to mibbit server and automatically identify your nick. You can then enter a channel that has you on an auto-op or auto-voice list, and you will get op'd or voiced accordingly.
Let's see if it worked. When you've done all i listed above, close all mibbit stuff in browser, then reopen mibbit. Give it 5 seconds.
Then if a mibbit server window opens automatically, go there and see if it says this:
NickServ This nickname is registered and protected. If it is yourIf so, you are done.
From now on, to connect to channels, don't use the "home" tab in mibbit screen. Use these methods to connect to channels:
1. Type: /Join <channel> <pass> (typed into server window or existing chat window.)
2. Go to channels -> connect now. (A saved channel has a connect now button.)
3. Set saved channels to auto connect. This will connect you to them as soon as you open mibbit screen.
To do that, go the channels and set saved channel to auto-connect.
There's where you can find many commands for the mibbit server.
(If that doesn't work, take off some end directories of link.)
Anything in <sharp brackets> is always things you put yourself, like variables. <pass> = whatever your pass is.
When you experience an error, the server window should tell you what happened. Perhaps copy it's error messages and show to an IRC expert. Error messages are how you fix your IRC problems.
