Skype ID template

Jump to: navigation, search

Greeting Oliver,

A warm welcome to our WE family. I see that you've been adding a couple of User boxes -- great stuff :-).

Had a play at adding an optional SKypeID over here:


Feel free to copy the relevant components into your original template.

So {{User_Skype_Test|SkypeID=MyskypeID}} will appear as:

Skype-logo.jpg This user contributes using Skype on SkypeID: MyskypeID.

Have fun!

Cheers Wayne

Hi Wayne, Thanks for that fix, very nice. Can't express how blessed I feel about this place, still feel a bit dwarfed being surrounded by so many professor's and all. The learning experience is very exciting and wiki way makes me feel right at home, it's positively stimulating indeed ! So thanks for making that possible as well. Warm regards, Oliver --Lebreton 06:27, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

It would be great if this skype ID could be taken on step further and turn it in a active link which activates a set of different actions: ie add the ID to contacts, or place call to her/him. Skype has some advanced html features here like <a href="skype:echo123?add">Click</a>(add echo123 to your contacts) but don't know how to implement this in wiki, is it possible ?--Lebreton 21:38, 1 April 2009 (UTC) Note: about great stuff......Thanks and/or yes, Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS both Rock !
