Can I change the background or colors?

Nice, but for communities unuseable because... User have to register on Minnitchat... No chance to set userprofile-links ....

Tested for some weeks, all good! Easy installation, customization, support and nice code quality! unfortunately the registrations are not integrated with wordpress but requires a Minnit account for more feature.

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.

Implements a URL parameter for JavaScript/CSS files that corresponds to the plugin version, so outdated cached assets won’t be served. Enjoy!


  • Overhaul of the PHP code for maximum efficiency.

  • New: Add Minnit Chat via a Gutenberg block when editing a post or page! This allows you to put the chatroom only on specific pages/posts.


  • Updated the description and FAQ.


  • Ensured compatibility with WordPress 5.0. Happy chatting!


  • Minor changes to menu text.


  • 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!
