It’s a handy thing if users have joined a Widget from a shared link and don’t know about nickname services, now you can provide an easy way for them to change their nick – clicking the name pops a dialogue box asking for the new nickname before returning the user to the chat.


Although it’s most likely to be useful in the Widget the feature is available in the main client also.


For a quick guide on how to set it up see here; in keeping with all other Prefs the color can be changed to any hex / rgb code you prefer.  Click the image below now to see a live demo.
