Create your html code Snippet by going to

 

 

Note: the online generator always create call URL, if you want to allow only chat, just alter slightly
the URL, exchange call with chat

<script type="text/javascript"

</
script> <a href="skype:cedric.walter?call">

  1. Copy the code Snippet in an empty file in your #Joomla! root. For the example, lets call it
    skypeme.html
  2. In the module manager, create a copy the module ‘wrapper’, rename the copy to ‘skypeme’ 
    (or whatever make sense for you)
  3. Edit the ‘skypeme’  module settings,
