Showing your IM status on your userpage


To embed an Yahoo button inside a MediaWiki article (or more likely a userpage):

To get help about the yahoo button:
<yahoo help/>

eg (output):

Syntax: <yahoo style="[style]" action="[action]">[your Yahoo name]</xfire>
  • style: the button style, from 0 (smallest) to 2 (biggest), 3 and 4 are for voicemail. Default: 2.
  • action: action when the button is clicked. Default: sendim. Possible values: "addfriend","call","sendim".
For more details about all the styles and actions, see Yahoo! Presence.
Example: <yahoo style="2" action="sendim">PatheticCockroach</yahoo>

The same syntax is used for all the other supported IM programs:
<aim help/>AIM-Username</aim> (AIM)
<icq help/> (ICQ)
<gtalk help/> (Google Talk)
<livemessenger help/> (MSN/Live Messenger)
<skype help/> (Skype)
<xfire help/> (Xfire)
