I have found that the skype extension doens't work. After exhaustive online checking and comparing the code I've found that many users have been also not getting the skype extension to work. Has anyone come up with a solution?

  • Hi Chris, I had the same problem and nobody was online! But the problem was not this extension. I've changed the skype-preferences and then works fine: Options -> Privacy -> Allow my status to be shown on the web. st January 13, 2009, at 09:37 AM

If I'm right skype changed the API since May 2015 and doesn't support online status any more. For information please visit [(approve links) edit diff]. So you may replace the online-status by a call-button with the code below. For more options than used below please visit
You may replace the skype-section by the following code - please test it! If you can confirm it, please note here, so following users can have an effort! Otherwise - of course - you may correct my code! :-) Matthias June 11, 2015

    case "skype":
      $output = "
              <script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"\"></script>
              <div id=\"SkypeButton_Call_".$args['id']."_1\">
                   <script type=\"text/javascript\">
                        \"name\": \"dropdown\",
                        \"element\": \"SkypeButton_Call_".$args['id']."_1\",
                        \"participants\": [\"".$args['id']."\"]
