  1. its not rocket science - it cannot be as i can do it - its worth learning to get the skin as YOU want it
  2. perfectly possible to move tabs down it needs uimain.dat to be modified as Maxthon tend to change things in every build posting skin mods is painful as they only last one release usually - there is no easy way to mod skins other than mods to the file mentioned to do what you want is a matter of unpacking the file - moving one line of code and repacking the file - simple really but keeping up with their changes is the problem - the easy way - if its important to you is to learn how to do it yourself
  3. with respect how is it important to many people - the last skin i posted which had tabs on bottom had a grand total of one download - say again - 1 - so hardy useful to many modding skins at that level is easy enough - its certainly not rocket science - so if its important have a look at the code and learn how to do it
  4. might be some on chinese forum - apart from that there are not many - you could always make your own as others do
  5. whatever happened to this 44 votes - referred to product manager and buried - a month or two and we can all sing happy birthday

    noads

    noads stopped working for me in the latest branch - with help from the devs it now works there is [apparently] an error in the original noads extension - why it worked with earlier versions of Maxthon is not explained by Maxthons but no matter the error is in def.json def.json-'include': [ '*.', 'localhost' ]should be change to 'include': [ '*', 'localhost' ] i will not post a fixed version only point to the fix given by Maxthon and would acknowledge the work of the original author of the extension who i believe went by the name of Trincare and the Maxthon devs who found
  7. i think the max width is hard coded - its certainly possible to change settings to reduce the tab width from that set but altering those same settings to a lager number has no effect so i think you are stuck wit what they have as a max
  8. i raised this elsewhere and Jeff commented - i thought it would have been resolved but obviously not - read into that what you want
  9. excellent job on the user bar - much better that the Maxthon offering
  10. its the popup wanting to generate a password - so just go to any site that needs a password - click on the password box and up pops the annoying popup - does not matter if you have your own password set it still pops up - would be great to get rid of it
  11. like this - can you do the same to stop the annoying password box flashing up when a password is needed
  12. i suspect its lack of continuity of staff and poor communication - just as the bugs change here on a regular basis i would guess the devs have a high turnover - so whilst they can program they start with a clean sheet of paper each time and do whatever they want with little detailed reference backwards
  13. what do you mean they are NOT skins - joe with 2 hats thinks they are - as to the rest of it i dont think its going to happen - prove me wrong Jeff - but the skin centre died with 3 - i think the devs agree with Joe - what we have is it
  14. i have no idea apart from in the new UI they seem to do something similar in index and layout.htm - the latter is called in the former - have a look in there it may help - its simple so i would guess you have tried that
  15. be surprised then i have no idea to the answer but as a suggestion could you jut not alter the code so its corrupt - miss something out or something like that - would that stop the extension running or just give an error code
  16. it does indeed which is why i said i think their definition of a skin is different to yours and mine - in MX4 you could do what they have added to 5 - many call that a skin - its not - well not imo but you will have to wait for an official answer
  17. good question - not looked deeply but i think their definition of a skin is different from what you and i might think - you can change the background colour and/or change same background to one of a few defined pictures - it may be possible to add your own picture but i think? thats it - if so its all in the definition - MX4 skins are different things and i cannot see it being possible to add those to MX5

    Skin and background

    as far as i remember skins from any official source have not been available since MX3 - and dont mistake full skins with coloured backgrounds that seem to be what they will push
  19. Tony

    Skins!

    coloured backgrounds - well thats great - what can i say - sure to bring people back in droves
  20. not sure what you are asking - the newer versions use the same method - the dat 0 and 1 files have benm renamed - 7twenty posted that earlier - old skins may or may not work fully once the files have been renamed - if thats all you want then wiltsers skins may work
  21. there is or was some help files on modding skins - have a search - you have to unpack the dat 0 and 1 files using the packers that are on here - once you have them unpacked you have a series of css and htm files for various elements of the skin - depending on your knowledge and ambition its all in there packer is here

    Skins for Maxthon 5

    thats a cracking system - looking at the skin files they look easy enough to change - give me good side favourites similar to MX4 and i would be looking at that very seriously - need to look at the extensions i assume as i know nothing about chrome
  23. have you checked with Yoyoako that he/she is happy for the link to be here - one of the chinese skinners has in the past asked that links are not posted here - cannot remember who it was
