Skype sociable link won't stay

    Hi - I have added the Skype sociable link with callto://YourUserNameHere in my settings, saved, and it works fine, but only once. Whenever I go back to the settings the field is blank and the link in my address bar shows #. This doesn't happen for the email or mobile phone links.

    Any idea what's happening? Thank you

    I did make your change from an older post for it to work at all in the beginning

    You may have to open up /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/functions/theme.php and change line 137 from this,

    $sociables .= '<img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon ) . '" alt="" />';

    To this,

    $sociables .= '<img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon ) . '" alt="" />';

    For it to work properly though.

    Hello gatya,

    Try adding it to your header file instead,

    sorry, I meant this code
    Open up /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/functions/theme.php and around line 137 you should see this,

    $sociables .= '<img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon ) . '" alt="" />';

    Change it like this,

    $sociables .= '<img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon

    Hello Elliott

    Thanks for your reply - but that seems a bit complicated - shouldn't the callto://YourUserNameHere link just stay in the field where I put and save it? Why does it disappear?
