To add a Skype button to your homepage:

1. Click on this link to customize the button you would like to use on your site.
2. Copy the HTML code provided and drag and drop the HTML Widget onto your page.
3. Paste the code into the HTML editor that opens.

If the Skype button doesn't seem to work, you'll need to change some Skype settings. Here's how to do that:

1. Open Skype program.
2. Select Tools -> Options on Windows or select Preferences on Mac.
3. Select Privacy Settings.
4. Click the "Show Advanced Options" button.
5. Finally tick on the "Allow my status to be shown on the web" check button.
6. Click "Save" in the Options dialog to exit.

People will then be able to click on your Skype Widget in order to contact you.

Thank you Brianna,

I would like to have Skype on my homepage like this:
there is not my account name; it could be free.

I mean, somebody comes to my webpage skype-page and like to use
skype. So there is not my account; it must be free for visitor.

So, how can i make a free Skype for everybody to use; they could make
Skype calls with their own account names.

Thank you in advance !!!
