Improved GIF Search with Tenor

Hello everybody.

We are pleased to announce that the GIF Search functionality has been given a major overhaul.

First off, when you first open the GIF Search, you will be greeted with a list of categories that you can quickly click to view:

You may also use the search box above, same as before. Tenor’s results will do a better job at delivering the GIFs you’re looking for — searching “water bottle”, for instance, only delivers results matching water bottle, not pictures that are either water or bottle:

Finally, GIFs are now slightly bigger. Owners can always turn off GIFs using the Chat Edit menu, under the “Links, Media, GIFs” category.

Happy chatting!

Minnit offers a great embeddable HTML5 chat that’s free to start. See https://minnit.chat for details, and embed onto your website by just copying a simple line of code.

View your chat archive

Hello everyone,

By popular request, we are announcing the ability to mass-view your chatroom’s Message Archive. Pick a specific time period to view, and view the messages that took place during that time period. You can even share the URL with others and they can instantly view it.

This feature is available for chats on the Basic plan and higher. The default rank required to view the archive is owner, but you can change this under “Rank Permissions and Bans” from the Chat Edit menu.

You can access your chat archive by going to: https://minnit.chat/archive

Here’s a preview of what viewing the archive looks like:

We will be adding the ability to download the archive en masse at a later date. Stay tuned!

We’re constantly looking for ways to improve Minnit, so if you have suggestions on how to improve this feature or any other suggestions in general, please let us know on the forum.
