Did you know that AspNetDating integrates with Skype? It's really easy - all you have to do is to add a new question in the user profile structure. Here are the steps:

  1. Log in your admin tool and open the Edit Topics & Questions page.
  2. Pick the most appropriate topic and click Edit and then click the Add new question button.
  3. Edit the newly created question
  4. Enter the question details - e.g. "Skype" for name, "Enter your skype username" for description, etc
  5. The Edit Style should be set to Single Line which is appropriate for a skype username
  6. The Show Style should be set to Skype Link. This is where the magic happens.
  7. Click Save

Once you have added your Skype questions users will be able to enter their skype username and a special icon will appear on their profile. The icon will reflect the user Skype status (online/offline/busy etc) and clicking on it will directly launch a Skype call.

Optional: From version 6.5 you can check the Editable only by paid members and/or Viewable only by paid members checkboxes to limit who can enter or view the skype info.
