Yes that is for prosilver, for subsilver2 it's pretty similar just use some logic.

If you have the js included in the overall_header.html (as stated in the mod install instructions) then your status on skype should show in the forum.

as far as why it is always grey...you sure you inputted your correct name for skype in your user control panel? Sadly, I have no control on whether or not the Skype status works as it is being called directly from Skype itself.

Quick observation re skype icon always gray:

I've noticed that the icons go gray after about a half hour regardless of whether the user is logged onto skype or not. I think if the user is logged on but inactive, there's some kind of time-out occurring on skype's end. Perhaps this relates to the above poster's problem.

I tell my board users not to depend on the gray or green. Click on a gray icon to see what happens.

If someone wanted to use the pop up window with multi ways of skype contact on their site maybe in footer or header so people would not have to log in would that be possible? Another words pulling it from viewtopic_body.html and using on overall_footer.html or overall_header.html?

I'm using this on viewtopic_body.html

<!-- IF postrow.U_SKYPE --><class="skype-icon"><a href="{postrow.U_SKYPE}" onclick="popup(this.href, 550, 320); return false;" title="{L_SKYPE}"><img src="http://mystatus.skype.com/smallicon/{po ... SKYPE_NAME}" style="width: 16px; height: 16px;" alt="{L_SKYPE}" title="{L_SKYPE}" /></a><!-- ENDIF -->
this would be for subsilver2 and posted in the overall_footer.html

hi

I simply installed the all MOD following step by step instructions.

however mods does not show up on profile or anywhere.
it's fully because I do not get any error message. it seems there is no interaction with the pre existing code and the mods with all the uploaded modified files.

hope you can give me an hand.

thanks

Yes.

however last step when I tried to run and browse db_update.php into the root is saying I have no permission or access to it.

not sure if this might be the cause and how sorting it out.

thanks

:?

Don't know why that would happen but to run the installer without it checking for the proper authorizations.

OPEN

db_update.php

FIND

Code: Select all

if (!$auth->acl_get('a_'))
{
	trigger_error($user->lang['NOT_AUTHORISED']);
}
and remove it from the file. Then browse to it and it will install the database updates for you.

Dear rick

just to advise you I've reviewed the modified files uploaded. I do not see error following your instructions.

can you please tell me if I can send you the modified files for your review. ?

at this point I'm in a loop I cannot come out .

no icons and menus of skype are showed on the topics.

advise I can send the files by email if you want.

I have other mods installed so I would avoid to start from clean file becuase I should then implement again these mods as well.

thanks
