Skype Sociable Not Working

resolved (17 posts) (4 voices)

  1. Dear @MSMY~

    I've read through many forum posts and can't seem to find the answer to my question; in the Elegance Theme settings, (under sociable), I can't get the Skype button to work.

    I've entered the URL as "skype:username?call", using my username to replace the "username". My website address is http://iccopywriting.com

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Z

    Hello orthodoxdaily,

    When I click the link it opens it up in skype, so I would assume it's working. What is it supposed to do?

    I'm using the latest version of Firefox, version 9. It's not working in Chrome either. Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Try clearing your browser cache, it's supposed to open skype as seen in my screenshot correct? Do you have skype installed on the computer?

    @udroma, send us a link to your page.

    @udroma, Try changing line 273 in /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/functions/theme.php from this,

    $sociables .= '<a href="' . esc_url( $sociable_link ) . '"><img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon ) . '" alt="' . ( isset( $sociable[$key]['alt'] ) ? $sociable[$key]['alt'] : '' ) . '" /></a>';

    To this,

    $sociables .= '<a href="' . $sociable_link . '"><img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon ) . '" alt="' . ( isset( $sociable[$key]['alt'] ) ? $sociable[$key]['alt'] : '' ) . '" /></a>';

    i followed the fix and it worked but now i get this when saving pages!

    It's most likely caused by how you edited the file. Make sure there are no spaces or lines at the beginning or end of the theme.php file.

    You downloaded the file via FTP, edited, and then uploaded back to the server?

    yes i did it with ftp
    no spaces or lines left... i just replaced the line. this is how it looks now with some lines before and after to be sure:

    elseif( empty( $sociable[$key]['custom'] ) )
    					$sociable_icon = THEME_IMAGES . '/sociables/' . $sociable[$key]['color'] . '/' . $sociable[$key]['icon'];
     
    				$sociable_link = ( !empty( $sociable[$key]['link'] ) ) ? $sociable[$key]['link'] : '#';
     
    				$sociables .= '<div class="social_icon ' . $sociable[$key]['color'] . '">';
    				$sociables .= '<a href="' . $sociable_link . '"><img src="' . esc_url( $sociable_icon ) . '" alt="' . ( isset( $sociable[$key]['alt'] ) ? $sociable[$key]['alt'] : '' ) . '" /></a>';
    				$sociables .= '</div>';
    			}
    		}
    	}
     
    	if( !empty( $header_links ) || !empty( $sociables ) || !empty( $header_text ) ) {

    i cannot save anything now with wordpress! it keeps giving me the error!

    Delete the file, upload a fresh copy, and then try editing it again.
