Prevent Skype from "creeping" into your WordPress

Ok that Skype is a wonderful video conferencing application I use it myself daily to communicate with family, friends and collaborators, in all kinds of environments, and years ago.

But has an ugly habit and is to add a kind of plugin to browsers that converts every phone that is in an element active and passing adds a flag, an icon of a phone and changes color, all very cute.

But what if I do not want me to change my WordPress?

You'll tell me to go bullshit, " fuck Fernando, go into your Skype settings and remove the mark that adds that kind of stuff to the browser! ". And yes, that is for me, but for all those who visit the page? Why does my website have to look with those colors if I chose a minimalist theme, or even mounted a specific CSS class to display the phone? . Well, that's it.

Well, let's cut to the chase. The idea is to tune your WordPress so that, it does not matter if your visitors have that functionality active, see the telephone numbers of your contact page for example, as you put them, without flags or hosts .

Ea, well if it's your case, run to install and activate the plugin called Prevent Skype OverWriting . There is nothing to configure, you activate it and it works as it should.

Oh, you do not want to install more plugins? because nothing happens either, it's just as sucked by a single line of code. You just have to add this to the file header.php of your active topic:

Incidentally this code is valid for any HTML, the thing is to always add it before the tag .

With any of these methods you go through this …

From there, whoever wants to call you call and if you really want add a link that activates Skype in WordPress you do it manually, controlled and as you decide.
