Best of luck with it.

I don't have immediate plan to bring Skype MOD to phpBB3 due to time limitations :cry:

You're welcome..

I also made a small change since I like the smaller icon more then the bigclassic:

In: /styles/prosilver/template/memberlist_view.html add

Code: Select all

<!-- IF U_SKYPE --><dt>{L_SKYPE}:</dt> <dd><a href="skype:{U_SKYPE}?{U_SKYPE_BUTTON}" onclick="return skypeCheck();"><img src="http://mystatus.skype.com/smallclassic/{U_SKYPE}" style="width: 114px; height: 20px;" alt="{L_SKYPE}: {U_SKYPE}" title="{L_SKYPE}: {U_SKYPE}" /></a></dd><!-- ENDIF -->
In stead of:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF U_SKYPE --><dt>{L_SKYPE}:</dt> <dd><a href="skype:{U_SKYPE}?{U_SKYPE_BUTTON}" onclick="return skypeCheck();"><img src="http://mystatus.skype.com/bigclassic/{U_SKYPE}" style="width: 182px; height: 44px;" alt="{L_SKYPE}: {U_SKYPE}" title="{L_SKYPE}: {U_SKYPE}" /></a></dd><!-- ENDIF -->
By the way:
My status was hidden due to my Skype account settings: [Allow status on the web].
After changing it (and logon again) status is shown correct :)
reference: http://support.skype.com/index.php?_a=k ... ils&_i=606

Dutch translation:
'SKYPE' => 'Skype',
'SKYPE_USERNAME' => 'Skype Naam',
'SKYPE_BUTTON' => 'Skype Actie',
'SKYPE_CHAT' => 'Verstuur bericht',
'SKYPE_CALL' => 'Bellen'

Ciao,

Oscar

When I download the file, all I get is this weird looking file named, "Skype" with no end tag like .xml or something. Can someone help me out with this?

Thank you,
JP

Oh ok, gotcha. :D

Your skype file is missing. ".zip" at the end of the file. Thats why I couldn't recognized what the file was. Its best to rename your download files to skype.zip instead. If you did, make sure that your archive files are allowed in your forum under attachments.

im not using attachments, im using a custom built file downloader, and the .zip extention is there as my download links are bouncing .zip files.

PLEASE dont tell me how to do things, espec. when you dont know how the download is working

edit:

Turns out its a Vista Bug in conjucntion with PHP, and maybe PHP5
