Description

Mibbit ( http://www.mibbit.com ) is turning into an excellent way for relative newbies to get access to IRC (a process that the DreamWidth? survey has established is not easy for beginners).

Create a series of "Live Support" web pages that take people directly (or as directly as possible) to various interesting IRC channels.

Thoughts for things I'd like to see included in the Help menu that would LaunchExternalBrowser? to these pages are...

Live Support -> Padre Support (irc.perl.org #padre)
Live Support -> Perl Questions (English) (freenode #perl)
if ( Padre::Util::WIN32 ) {

Live Support -> Win32 Questions (English)

}
if ( Locale is Francais ) {

Live Support -> Perl Questions (En Francais)

}
# And so on for all languages with obvious channels
if ( Locale is blah blah ) {

Live Support -> Perl Questions (blah blah)

}

The links would be

http://widget.mibbit.com/?server=irc.perl.org&channel=%23padre

http://widget.mibbit.com/?server=irc.perl.org&channel=%23padre&nick=NICKNAME

where NICKNAME could be taken from some configuration parameter of Padre
and when the user clicks on one of the links for the firs time Padre would give
a pop-up asking for that nick.

http://wiki.mibbit.com/index.php/Widget

describes that we can add autoConnect=true to the URL to avoid the nick-name selection page
but for that to work an op (using the mibbit widget) must set "/autoconnect on" in the channel.
(This has been set in #padre)
