Voice in Page[edit]

Future Development could include being able to talk to the skype user within the page. possibilities to do this:

  • Using Flash
  • Using the Skype program itself

This at the moment is beyond my capabilities but i hope other people can help

Skype Privacy (or status: "I'm not telling")[edit]

I have tried both variants of the php script, but my button says "I'm not telling" regardless of what my actual Skype status is.

I have the latest version of Skype installed on the PC where my browser is running.

What are some possible causes of this problem?

Under tools->Options->Privacy there is a button called "Allow my status to be shown on the web". Enable it
That should fix the problem, get back to me if it doesn't

Call for help answer[edit]

Use a lookup array:

$lookup = array(
  'add' => true,
  'chat' => true,
  // ...
if (isset($lookup[$style])) {
  // do stuff;

if ( ! in_array( $action, array( 'add' , 'chat', 'call') ) ){ }

This may be smarter when you don't want to use a temporary variable

I've implemented this and also added support for small and medium icons (&version bump) Gible 00:15, 15 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How about other actions such as userinfo (view my profile), voicemail (leave me voicemail), and sendfile (send me a file)? Thomas Lerman 07:17, 17 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

To do this, I changed the code mentioned above to:
if ( ! in_array( $action, array( 'add' , 'chat', 'call', 'userinfo', 'voicemail', 'sendfile') ) ){
I hope this helps. Thomas Lerman 20:44, 23 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Skype Extension[edit]

Oh this is all so esoteric, ur askin me my squeal version an evryfink. I am a dirty filthy end-user that is code-dumb. I am trying to enable the Skype Extension on this page m:Board elections/2009/Candidates/en#Beauford Anton Stenberg b9 hummingbird hovering .28B9 hummingbird hovering.29 & I would really appreciate some support cos i'm *confuzzled* & confounded. R there join the dots instructions for making this integrate with my Wikimedia signatures across Projects? I don't have an integrated Wikimedia a/c either. Mine are all single and fancy-free.

PS: I would love the join.the.dots cheatsheets so I may give them to the other candidates.

Usage in Templates[edit]

It seems that this does NOT work in templates. I use <skype>{{{SKYPE}}}</skype> where {{{SKYPE}}} is set. But {{{SKYPE}}} is not filled with correct value but instead used as the string "{{{SYKPE}}}". Any tips/hints? --Fez 07:36, 28 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Icon list?[edit]

COOL extension! Thanks for coding it up, it works like a champ. Does anyone have a page that has all of the different Skype icons? I might have to roll my own to support other languages (skype.com wasn't too helpful strangely). Cheers Tsx11 02:59, 29 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
