    At first glance this looked great for what I had in mind, but effectively it did not work out that way (in my 4.0.9-MacOS X-client). 1. Room README is below al other sidebar info and not and configurable to be on top. 2. Contents of Room README are not visable at once; you have to click Room README to see them. That's almost a show stopper. 3. In edit mode you can specify a title, but in read mode this didn't show up nor replaced 'Room README' in side bar. 4. A label 'NEW' is visible. With what purpose?

    Thanks for your feedback! We'll incorporate that into a new version of the addon, keep an eye out :)

    I was not able to get it to work. The details say to look in the room that it was installed in, but there was nothing evident on how to get it to work. Seems like a nice idea, if I could figure it out. The documentation on here was also less than stellar.

    Hi! Thanks for your feedback Andrew.

    Sorry it didn't work for you the first time. The problem might be the version of the client you are using – HipChat client 4.0 on Mac has support for visual addons like this – can you let me know which version of the client you're using? You can find out in the HipChat -> About HipChat menu.

    If you have a version of the client that is recent enough, you should be able to see the sidebar in the left hand side panel. Check out the screenshot here
