This is AJAX plugin for wordpress that displays multiple custom skype buttons on your website (floating / post / page / widget / shortcode / theme). It has some unseen features.
- Better fit your website design! Use your own images for skype icons (and official ones too). Customize skype widget style with background transparency, have a floating skype button or integrate it into post/page using shortcode. You can also use plain text instead of images.
- Link multiple skype accounts and/or people! Skype Button that changes automatically to display status for skype contact who is found online. This is useful if you have multiple people that visitors can contact. Plugin also compares the skype statuses of people who are found online and directs the traffic to the least busiest skype app.
- Make it dynamic! All status icons updates without page reload. This can be used on websites with infrequent page refresh (usually based on AJAX, Flash, Java-aplet like websites for games, stock exchange, gamble, betting etc.)
- Change how you want to be contacted from skype! You can choose an option to dynamically change the action of skype button according to your skype status (Call if Online, Chat if Busy, Leave voicemail if offline etc.)
- Custom style for widget or skype icons, there are no limits to how you could make it look. There are number of predefined styles and themes you can use out of the box (including this floating widget).
- Useful settings for geeks:
- Choose time interval between status update requests – to better fit your needs, you can also disable it.
- Choose whether to check skype status on page load – the page loads a little faster without check (official skype button always checks on load).
- Simple to use and light - only what you need and not more.
