How do I set up the Skype button to show my status on the web in Skype for Mac OS X?

If you have a legacy Skype button installed, people visiting your website or blog can also see your Skype status. By clicking the Skype button, they can call you on Skype at any time, even if your calling settings allow calls from contacts only.
To allow the legacy Skype button to display your status on the web:
  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. In the menu bar, click Skype > Preferences… > Privacy.
  3. Tick a box next to Show my status on the web.

Important: The legacy Skype button displaying your Skype status is no longer supported.

You can visit the Skype buttons area to get your own customized button for your website or application.
