I am in the process of redesigning a connect with us page and am looking to add the skype button script to the page. I have created a new content box to HTML and pasted in the code and saved but the script will not run or work regardless ?

I have read here to hit edit and paste in and save before turning back from edit / and tried every other possible outcome or wayof saving it and I get nothing happening.

This is the skype script > Here (http://www.skype.com/en/features/skype-buttons/create-skype-buttons/) and you can see the connect page Here (http://tryinhere.com/contact-us.html), I have left the box showing so you can see where it should be, any Ideas ?

Hello Pete,

It is easy, you should add tags:

1. after <script type="text/javascript">
add {literal}

2. befire </script> add {/literal}

save and check your code in box again in front end.

also you can create skype button with different way:

<a href="skype:+11111111111?call">Call to us through Skype</a>

<a href="skype:skype_name?chat">Chat with us through Skype</a>

<a href="skype:skype_name?voicemail">Send Voice message through Skype</a>

<a href="skype:skype_name1;skype_name2;skype_name3?call">Conference voice chat with our team through Skype</a>

<a href="skype:skype_name1;skype_name2;skype_name3?chat">Conference chat with our team through Skype</a>

maybe it help you :)

No I could not get it to work or understand where to put the literal part of the code ? It is confusing as I have never had to do that before / sorry.

Hello Pete,

I have removed free spaces from code and it works now. Please check Skype box on your site.
