Neat Skype Status (Custom Images and AJAX) is a light and simple WordPress plugin by Aurimas Kubeldzis displays Skype Button (with Official or Custom Images) in post/page/widget or floating. Status updates without page reload.
Skype provides limited number of Skype Buttons (icons) to show online status. This plugin solves the problem by providing a way to use your own images – this especially useful for web designers who would like to make skype better fit to their design theme. Official Skype don’t allow transparent background for some icons – you can have them with this plugin (provided by default)
Some websites are used for long periods of time without pressing the browser reload button to refresh the page. Plugin solves the problem by refreshing the status of skype button automatically by sending AJAX http requests (with chosen interval of time between refreshes). This can be useful for gaming websites or some websites that rely heavily on Flash, Java-aplet or AJAX technologies (that don’t require page refresh to function).
Very light and simple – only what you need and not more.
