How to add Yahoo Messenger Status on your webpage

Using the next link : http://messenger.yahoo.com/messenger/help/online.html I wrote a small tutorial on how to add your or someone elses status from the Yahoo Messenger client.
Their default code is :

  1. <a href="http://edit.yahoo.com/config/send_webmesg?.target=YAHOO USERNAME&src=pg"><img border="0" src="http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=YAHOO%20USERNAME&m=g&t=2" /></a>

but after doing some more research on the Internet I found that you can use several styles (small, medium, large) for the online/offline images.


For inserting a small image about your Yahoo Messenger! status you must copy the code below and replace YAHOO USERNAME with your yahoo username (without @yahoo.com).

  1. <a href="http://edit.yahoo.com/config/send_webmesg?.target=YAHOO USERNAME&src=pg"><img border="0" src="http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=YAHOO%20USERNAME&m=g&t=0" /></a>

.

The output should be small_yahoo_on.gif for online and small_yahoo_on.gif for offline.


For a medium size image, do the same as below but with the following code

  1. <a href="http://edit.yahoo.com/config/send_webmesg?.target=YAHOO USERNAME&src=pg"><img border="0" src="http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=YAHOO%20USERNAME&m=g&t=1" /></a>

.

The output should be medium_yahoo_off1.gif for online and medium_yahoo_off1.gif for offline.


The last style is for big image that you can add using the following code

  1. <a href="http://edit.yahoo.com/config/send_webmesg?.target=YAHOO USERNAME&src=pg"><img border="0" src="http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=YAHOO%20USERNAME&m=g&t=2" /></a>

.

The output should be big_yahoo_off.gif for online and big_yahoo_off.gif for offline.

I hope this will help you ;).
