Why Does My WordPress Site Have Skype Click to Call?
Since WordPress is my website and blogging tool of choice, I was recently surprised when I went to finish a client’s WordPress site and noticed that all the phone numbers were Skype Click to Call enabled even though I never added a plugin or coded the site to include this feature. I also noticed that the Skype Click to Call feature was only enabled when I viewed the site in Firefox and not in Chrome or Safari. After doing a bit of research and reading this article, I found that Firefox has a Skype extension that was enabled on my computer. This is what I did to disable the extension:
Tools > Add-ons > Extenstions > Disable Skype Click to Call
Easy, problem solved, right?
Well, not really. I had to take it one step further because I logged into my WordPress panel and saw Skype Click to Call code injected onto some, but not all pages that had phone numbers. This is what it looked like:
Bye, Bye Skype
