- If you didn't install a plugin which comes with the build of XChat you're using and you'd like to use it now, you can run the installation program again for your current version of XChat and select the new options. Existing settings are generally preserved, but make a backup of your config directory for safety until you've confirmed a proper reinstall. You can copy over backed-up config files or directories as needed (but only when any running instances of XChat are not using that config directory), or test a config with the
--cfgdir command-line argument.

- Distributions from ActiveState or official developers
for the Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby programming languages are linked to from SilvereX's download page which correspond to the plugins included with that build. A compatible distribution of a language is necessary, in addition to a corresponding XChat plugin, in order to use a script in that language. Note that some plugins may only be compatible with a certain distribution of a language's environment. Please read its instructions carefully.
- XChat 2.8.0 and later includes its own tray icon feature. xTray from Mike is a tray icon plugin useful for older builds or features XChat might not have built in.
