I had a problem with getting this to appear on a Joomla 3.0 site and the developer, Stefano, fixed it within a couple of hours and made the updated version available on his site immediately.
The status update is very accurate and if there is an issue about this, it is most likely to do with Skype itself (it can have performance problems on some days) rather than the extension.
The login is a modal window and the only thin lacking is an easy way to incorporate some intro text.
At the moment, you need to edit a long string variable in the extensions PHP file.
Add the domain in the 'Contribute' section in your G+ a/c
(A good tutorial by kissmetrics on Authorship Markup is available online)
Install this extension and follow the very good instructions provided. It is all there, just need to pay attention to the details!
This is a great plugin and very useful for displaying Joomla or any other code within an article without the Joomla application trying to render it!
I have seen many tutorials, for example on the loadmodule syntax, where the example pseudo-code provided is rendered or is missing, making the information useless.
It is a shame this extension is so little appreciated
A note on usage: If you need to format your code, make sure to place the formatting code before and after the plugin embed tag, otherwise the formatting code will also appear un-rendered as text.
It is simple but sophisticated in its functionality:
* Easy integration with Captcha;
* Painless addition of extra fields;
* Custom header and footer fields
* Customisable response page.
If only the core Joomla contact form was as good as this. In fact it has all the functionality the core module has but does it effortlessly and without having to use language and template overrides.
This is a joy to use.
So I installed this, FTP-ed the image to the required folder and the plugin did the rest!
