Skype for Jomsocial

July 16th, 2013

Skype for Jomsocial is a great little plugin to integrate the famous skype messaging network into any jomsocial powered website. Custom built to integrate perfectly inside jomsocial templates (main content, sidebar top or sidebar bottom), it uses our gorgeous, glossy designed skype buttons that users love so much. By publishing Skype for Jomsocial inside your jomsocial website you will allow all your users to add new skype friends, initiate voice or video calls and send messages because we packed this plugin with our already famous frontend user override. The frontend user override option is available in the joomla plugin backend and you can activate it or not, if set to Yes users will be able to add their skype username in the website frontend and display their skype online status inside their jomsocial user profile, even if they are not logged into your website, if set to No in the administrator plugin backend, then the backend username applies to all users and only your status is displayed.
