Description Klaus Reimer 2005-08-14 17:06:55 UTC
MediaWiki has support for mailto-Links (also draws a neat mail icon beside the
link). It would be nice if media wiki also supports callto-Links. These links
can be used to contact someone via Skype (See
Implementation is very easy, just search for "mailto" in the sources, copy the
found stuff and replace mail with call. Provide a neat skype_icon.gif and that's it.

A more universal but maybe more complicated to implement solution would be to
let the administrator (who installed the wiki) define custom URL protocols and
setup icons for them.
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-08-15 11:35:40 UTC
According to RFC 3966 'tel' should be used instead of 'callto'.
The icon should be something different, people can possibly use an
other software to make their calls and the skype icon can not be made
available under GPL.
Comment 2 Michael Keppler 2005-08-15 19:35:38 UTC
According to bug 431 configurable protocols are implemented in 1.5. The icon can
be defined in the skins CSS directly in MediaWiki.
