What is Skysa?


* Skysa is a free on demand web application bar that is a quick and easy way to enhance any website or blog. Enabling a website with Skysa takes less then 5 minutes, once installed the Skysa Bar displays on the webpage at the bottom of the browser window, making it unobtrusive while presenting Applications you add in a centralized location. An example of some Apps that can be added to your Skysa Bar include; Chat, Sharing, Page Translate, Voting Poll, Twitter, Facebook, and many others (Full List) that are available in our App library.
Why Use Skysa?

* There are many reasons to use Skysa with your website. With Skysa you can add or improve social features, add your social spaces to your website, engage your website visitors, collect valuable member information, and the list goes on. Skysa is designed to help websites keep visitors longer, and build more traffic through socially engaging Apps. Skysa is a robust web platform, once added to your website you never have to update code to get new features or updates (Less Headaches for you).
The Skysa Difference.

* Not a Browser Plug-in. Skysa is not a browser plug-in, meaning your visitors do not have to install anything to use the apps added to your bar. It is ready on demand and available on every page you place our code on.

* Fully Customizable. The Skysa bar is fully customizable, from the apps you use to the design of your bar. Most apps have settings you can change to further fine tune your bar to your websites needs. For example, the customization options we allow for style of your bar in unmatched, giving you the option to set background images, font, hover colors and much more!

* Integrated Membership System. The Skysa platform features a secure integrated membership and registration system that is used with our integrated Chat Room, IM and Commenting apps. Plus you can configure Skysa to work with your own Member Registration System. If you have a Spruz or Ning website your bar will work seamlessly with the members of your website.

* Awesome User Experience. In some ways Skysa is similar to the task bar on a Windows PC, Skysa floats at the bottom of the browser window (IE, Firefox, Etc) making it very accessible for your website visitors and members. Our App Windows features drag and drop, and dynamic resizing within your webpage, and you can open several App windows at a time. Finally a website enhancement that is easy for you to setup and customize, looks great, adds value to your website and is free to use.

* Go White Label. While we love to promote our brand we understand that the brand of your website is more important, which is why Skysa allows you to remove our logos and branding if you so choose.
Skysa History

* Skysa was officially launched on December 28th 2009, but the concept dates back 2008. Skysa is developed by an experienced team of web entrepreneurs that know the benefits social and interactive features bring to websites, having also founded the Spruz Social Website Builder (http://www.spruz.com) in 2007.The Skysa website is powered by the Spruz Social Platform where anyone can create a Free Social Website in minutes.

The above only grabs the image if the image is stored in the database. What if the vbulletin users are using the filesystem method?

I see we have a posting, or two, about how to modify this hack's Global Start plugin in order to display the toolbar on certain pages. However, I want to display it on all pages of the site...except for the Who's Online page.

So...instead of modifying the code to include every page I want it displayed on...can someone show me how to modify the code to just exclude the online.php page?

Thanks in advance...

Update...

Never mind...It's been worked out.

My website uses "forums" not "forum". What changes do I need to make besides this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

to not get this resulting URL when trying to view a member's profile:

http://gridironfans.com/forum/member.php?u=1

it should be:

Do we have any word on 4.2 and Skysa?

Has anyone had any luck with Skysa and 4.2? I would be willing to pay someone to install this on my site.

Thanks

I found an easy way to use Skysa and vb4. This works for us as we have no ads or banners at the bottom of the page.

Admincp > advertising > add new add.

Now if you want it just on the forums you can select forum and use the Below Threadlist area.

If you want it all over - select global and use the Above Footer area.

We got this code from Skysa when we signed up for the bar.

<a href="http://www.skysa.com/page/features/live-support-chat" id="SKYSA-NoScript">Live Support</a><script type="text/javascript" src="//static2.skysa.com?i=xxxxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx-xxx" async="true"></script>

All I did was place this in the ad html box, gave it a title, and saved, and it works.
