Link is a group power that allows you to add custom links to your chat group.

How to add links to your group

Links manager application

First, assign the link power to your chat. To do this, type the (link) smiley in the main/private chat, click it and click "Assign".

Then hover over "group" at the top right, click "customize", enter the group password, go to the "group powers" tab and find "link". From here, click the "edit" button beside the description.

This will lead to a links manager application for you to easily update or edit links:

  • The left column is the name of the link you wish to display.
  • The right column is for the link code (see below).
  • To add links, click "add a link" or the "x" button to remove a link. When you are done, be sure to click "save".

Note: All link names must be lowercase, or they will not function properly.

How to retrieve link codes

You will need to visit this website to generate your shortened links. Once you shorten a link, you will have a link that looks something like this: https://bit.ly/18AmTPK.

Next, remove "https://bit.ly/" and copy the code that follows. This is the code you will need to enter in the right column of the links manager application.

For example, if you wanted to link "help" in your chat, you would first visit this website to shorten https://xat.com/Help. You would then enter "help" in the left column and "1fKpPeB" in the right column of the links manager application.
