Thats beyond my knowledge...

I guess I should specify "Custom Video Playlists" so people don't put music playlists in there

Thank you,

I was looking for an easy way of doing that...

Now I can have Netflix, Hulu Desktop and firefox launch from my home screen.

Since we are talking about home screens. Is there an easy way to add Favorites to the confluence home screen?

I've used your skin before and I know you can place the menu bar horizontally. Is there a way to do that in ConfluenceConfused

by the way... YOUR NIGHT SKIN IS AWESOME...!!!

This is awesome, should be part of the next release instead of a mod. Thanks for the work on this!

hi tried to use your mod and is not working (trying in english but no easy being a spanish guy living in France)

more details

using xbmc pre 10.5 r28256
using it in portable mode because testing some features and like this being able to have the DB at a glance (not sure is the best way)
have 2 profiles (master user and kids) because was the way i ve founded for having kids films separately

i have copy your files even create the addon folder djtoll talk about but nothing happens when launching in portable mode but if i run it normally (surely my DB is empty and also all the parameters (profiles, meteo, spanish, etc...) but then i see your custom home

any ideas?

is it the portable mode? or the profile option?

thx in advance

No it's that you are on an older build - r28256...You need on a current 10.5 build of XBMC.

Technically yes but I wouldn't count on me in near future(1 month). Actually subs are easy, the Home with all the backdrop code and whatnot is the time consuming part, so who knows...

Great mod, very good. Confluence is my favorite skin so far, and adding items to the home menu might be simple for those used to coding, but not for common mortals really. An essential feature.

Some requests:

altering the order of the items in home menu
custom sub menus would be... wonderful really
editing already existing items and sub menus would be great too.

Keep it up and once again, thanks

This is a great mod..but could you assist with helping those of us interested in doing it a bit manually? I'd love to know how to actually edit the skin, not just hope someone more skilled than me can make something for it.

I'd like to know how to rename this skin? I'd like to have confluence and confluence-custom, or something like that.

1. Not possible
2. I'll whip up subs sometime....
3. Edit existing items?

in skin folder you'll see addon.xml open that up and you'll see this block at the top:
Quote: id="skin.night"
version="1.4.6"
name="Night"

change to:
Quote: id="skin.whateveryouwant"
version="1.4.6"
name="whateveryouwant"
Not sure if required but I'd change the folder name from skin.night to skin.whateveryouwant
