Skype Legacy Buttons

Unlimited, highly customizable and accessible (!) Skype buttons through widgets, post shortcode/quicktag and template tags.

NOTICE: as of Mai 2015, Microsoft has officially dropped Skype's Online Status service read more and consequently, this plugin will no longer be able to provide buttons that indicate online status. Only legacy Skype buttons that do not reflect the users online status remain available.

This WordPress plugin allows you to add one or multiple, customizable and accessible (!) Skype buttons to your site. You can pick any of the (still) available legacy Skype button themes and place them in your pages and posts content (with a neat little Skype button in the WYSIWYG editor), in your sidebar via widgets (unlimited number) or anywhere in your theme template files.

The Skype Buttons admin page and Skype Widget options are adequately annotated but there is also a Quick Guide section with lots of information on all the possible ways to get you blog Skyped. If you still cannot get it working the way you want to, find a Skype link to the developer on the Notes & Live Support section.
