Light and simple Skype Button plugin (w/ Official or your Skype Status Icons) in post/page/widget or floating. Skype Status updates without refresh.
Please send me any suggestions (bugs/features) here or in wordpress forums (don't forget to tag it so I receive notification)
Use the automatic installer from within the WordPress administration, or:
.zipfile by clicking on the Download button on the right
neat-skype-statusdirectory to your
After activation click Settings (or go Settings -> Neat Skype Status). Enter your skype name as a minimum requirement (other options are optional). Make sure you set your skype status visible on the web in your Skype settings (Menu: Skype -> Privacy...) the option "Allow my skype online status to be shown on the web"
Just follow the examples in wp-content\plugins\neat-skype-status\images folder - make a copy of a theme, rename it and replace the images with your own .png images.
Some of the statuses are not anymore used by latest skype, but it still works if you manage to set your status to one of non-available statuses (with old skype version). If you want to reduce the number of statuses even futher - you can make a couple of copies of the same icon with different numbers in name.
There are 3 different styles for your skype buttons: floating skype button, skype widget or shortcode. It's pretty much self explanatory (I left some comments there for you as a gift). If you don't know how to use CSS - let me know what you need and I will add it to skype css as commented text.
Then use shortcode [skype theme="yourtextfile.txt"] in post/page or with php
Shortcode example: [skype skypename="neatplugins" visible_name="Neat Skype Status" action="call"]
skypename - skypename to check visible_name - name that appears when hovered action - action to take. You can also use special action "map" to be able to change action by changing your status
