  • A problem about skype icons


    I upgraded to 3,5,4 yesterday. It was showing an S button for users that give their skype info at their profile at 3,5,3. At 3,5,4 i think its upgraded to show status of user. But at my forum it is only showing a gray ? at skype status.

    When i click to it a popup appears and its status written I'm not tellin.

    I think it is bcs it cant retreive the skype status of user.

    What must i do for it to show the correct status? I mean if user's skype is offline it will show the offline skype icon etc.

    note : i uploaded all of the files at 3,5,4 zip and also made all of the template changes...

    Must i install any extra plugin for it?

    p.s: I heard something like skype web plugin at 3,5,4's release thread. What is it and where can i find it ??

    That's not an error.
    Some Skype users just hide their online status.

      I added my skype info to my profile for just checking and it said i am not telling instead of offline.

      Is there a option at skype for showing status at web? Must users enable it from their skype?

        Its within Skype under Options and then Privacy.

        A checkbox that says "Allow my status be shown on the Web"

            Had the same problem, just showed up as a "?" just upgraded to the latest Skype software and all works now, the option that Scott suggested was not on my early version.
