To install this plugin, simply put it in your “plugins” directory. You will need to then make a chat on https://minnit.chat and put the chat name in to the plugin settings.


How many users can join my chat?

There is no limit. You can have optional “subrooms” which split your chat up if it’s busy, so users can spread out.

Can I change the background or colors?

Yes. These options and more are available via “Edit Chat” from within your chatroom itself.


Best user chat I have found.

As the title implies it is the best user chat bar none I have found. There may be as good paid plugins which I haven't tried and incidentally they offer paid subscriptions for those who need them but their free tier is great offering up to 100 simultaneous users, one on one, rooms, subrooms, 14 day msg retention and their support is excellent. Nothing I have tried comes close. Worth a try to see if it meets your needs.

  • Ensured compatibility with WordPress 5.0. Happy chatting!


  • Updated the phrasing used in the chat menu to make it more clear.


  • Minnit Chat now works closer with your WordPress setup to deliver a better experience. You can configure your chat to only display to users with a WordPress account, users who’ve subscribed to your blog, or your Contributors/Editors/Admins! The choice is yours.

  • Also, new users who are logged in automatically get a nickname that matches their WordPress name. This makes it easier for you to identify your visitors, and prevents them from having to type a nickname when they join your chat.

  • Happy chatting!


  • Improves the code to make it work better with various types of WordPress themes.


  • Initial release.
