Great plugin - Simple to install and works out of the box. I had to contact support as I could not get the status to show but you have to ensure in your Skype account under 'privacy' that you allow your status to be shown online so was no fault of the plugin. Support was excellent and response time was faultless.

My site users have reported no issues and all comments so far on the use is positive.

NOTE: The plugin also works and looks far better in the sidebar than the main position that is stated on the website

Recommended if you want a quick easy Skype integration for your social network.
