An XMPP URI is a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Resource_Identifier Uniform Resource Identifier] that makes a Jabber ID "clickable" in web browsers and such. Unfortunately, support for XMPP URIs is not (yet!) common in popular software applications, so you need to set it up manually. This page describes how...

= Formal Definition =

For those interested in a formal definition of XMPP URIs, read RFC 4622, [http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0147.html JEP-0147] and the [http://www.xmpp.org/registrar/querytypes.html querytypes registry].

= Web browsers =

== Firefox ==

To XMPP URIs clickable in the [http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ Firefox] web browser, do this:

# Type "about:config" in the url bar
# Right-click and select New->String
# Enter "network.protocol-handler.app.xmpp" as the preference name
# Enter the application to run

== Opera ==

To make XMPP URIs clickable in the [http://www.opera.com/ Opera] web browser, do this:

# Open your opera6.ini file
# find (or except add) "Trusted Protocols" section
# add "xmpp=0,0,<application to run>" to the "Trusted Protocols" section
# Note: on older versions it's "xmpp=<application to run>"

== Konqueror ==

In KDE4 create a file in $HOME/.kde4/share/kde4/services/xmpp.protocol

[Protocol]
exec=psi --uri "%u"
protocol=xmpp
input=none
output=none
helper=true
listing=false
reading=false
writing=false
makedir=false
deleting=false
Icon=""


In KDE3 is similar, but the file will be $HOME/.kde/share/services/xmpp.protocol and you might have to replace the exec line with ''exec=psi --uri `echo "%u" |sed s/%40/@/ `''

= Operating systems =

== Linux ==

To follow.

== Mac OS X ==

Install the XMPP-IRI helper application linked to from [http://www.deepdarc.com/ichat-jabber-tips/ here].

[http://www.adiumx.com/ Adium] registered itself as a handler for XMPP URIs, "Just Works" with Camino.

== Windows ==
Paste the following in Notepad and save to a file with an ".reg" extension. Then double-click on it and answer yes to the prompt to import the settings into your registry. Be sure to enter the path to your XMPP-URI capable Jabber client. See the [http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/networking/pluggable/overview/appendix_a.asp Registering an Application to a URL Protocol] article in [http://msdn.microsoft.com MSDN] for more details.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmpp]
@="URL:XMPP Protocol"
"EditFlags"=dword:00000002
"URL Protocol"=""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmpp\shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmpp\shell\open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmpp\shell\open\command]
@="<application to execute> %l"

= Jabber Clients =

List clients supporting XMPP URIs here.

== jabber.el ==

[http://emacs-jabber.sf.net jabber.el] supports XMPP URIs from version 0.7.1. How to set it up is described in the documentation.

== Gajim ==

Using Firefox, set the string for network.protocol-handler.app.xmpp to 'gajim-remote handle_uri' in about:config. For Opera add 'xmpp=0,0,gajim-remote handle_uri' under [Trusted Protocols] (I had to add Trusted Protocols at the bottom) in opera6.ini.

== Coccinella ==

[http://Coccinella.im/ Coccinella] supports many of them but not all, see coccinella/components/ParseURI.tcl
And the Mac desktop bindings may be flaky.

== Miranda IM==

[http://miranda-im.org/ Miranda IM] supports handling of XMMP URIs since version 0.7.1.2 of jabber plugin. Implementation requires File Association Manager plugin which can be found at http://addons.miranda-im.

= MediaWiki =

== Last version ==
=== Part 1 ===
In mediawiki-1.15.1\includes\DefaultSettings.php

There is:
<pre>
/**
* The external URL protocols
*/
$wgUrlProtocols = array(
'http://',
'https://',
'ftp://',
'irc://',
'gopher://',
'telnet://', // Well if we're going to support the above.. -ævar
'nntp://', // @bug 3808 RFC 1738
'worldwind://',
'mailto:',
'news:',
'svn://',
);
</pre>

You must add:
<pre>'xmpp:',</pre>

Result:
<pre>
/**
* The external URL protocols
*/
$wgUrlProtocols = array(
'http://',
'https://',
'ftp://',
'irc://',
'gopher://',
'telnet://', // Well if we're going to support the above.. -ævar
'nntp://', // @bug 3808 RFC 1738
'worldwind://',
'mailto:',
'xmpp:',
'news:',
'svn://',
);
</pre>

=== Part 2 ===
In mediawiki-1.15.1\maintenance\fuzz-tester.php

There is:
<pre>
// implicit link creation on URIs.
"http://",
"https://",
"ftp://",
"irc://",
"news:",
'gopher://',
'telnet://',
'nntp://',
'worldwind://',
'mailto:',

// images.
</pre>

You must add:
<pre>'xmpp:',</pre>

Result:
<pre>
// implicit link creation on URIs.
"http://",
"https://",
"ftp://",
"irc://",
"news:",
'gopher://',
'telnet://',
'nntp://',
'worldwind://',
'mailto:',
'xmpp:',

// images.
</pre>

=== Part 3 ===
In all skins (\mediawiki-1.15.1\skins\***\main.css)

There is:
<pre>
#bodyContent a[href ^="mailto:"],
.link-mailto {
background: url("mail_icon.gif") center right no-repeat;
padding-right: 18px;
}
</pre>

You must add:
<pre>
#bodyContent a[href ^="xmpp:"],
.link-xmpp {
background: url(xmpp_icon.gif) center right no-repeat;
padding-right: 10px;
}
</pre>


Result:
<pre>
#bodyContent a[href ^="mailto:"],
.link-mailto {
background: url("mail_icon.gif") center right no-repeat;
padding-right: 18px;
}
#bodyContent a[href ^="xmpp:"],
.link-xmpp {
background: url(xmpp_icon.gif) center right no-repeat;
padding-right: 10px;
}
</pre>

And in the same folder as the CSS file, download and place [http://wiki.jabber.org/skins/jabberorg/xmpp_icon.gif this icon file].

== older ==
If you run a MediaWiki you may also want it to support xmpp: URIs, which it doesn't by default. Thankfully the fix is easy. In your LocalSettings.php file, add the line:
<pre>
$wgUrlProtocols[] = "xmpp:";
</pre>

That's all you technically need to do. It can also make things prettier though if you add the Jabber icon next to all such links. To do this, locate the .css file for the skin you are using (e.g. skins/monobook/main.css) and append the following code:
<pre>
#bodyContent a[href ^="xmpp:"],
.link-xmpp {
background: url(xmpp_icon.gif) center right no-repeat;
padding-right: 10px;
}
</pre>

And in the same folder as the CSS file, download and place [http://wiki.jabber.org/skins/jabberorg/xmpp_icon.gif this icon file].
