  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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

    Skins!

    coloured backgrounds - well thats great - what can i say - sure to bring people back in droves
  8. 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
  9. 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
  11. 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
  12. nothing to do with main menu once you have moved the navbar to the top then add a line in navbar/index.css /* Navigation Bar Style @author SiC @revision 74 */ .navbar { flow: horizontal; margin-right:130; padding: 0dip 3dip 2dip 64dip; height: 100%%; overflow-x: hidden; text-overflow: ellipsis; } change value [130] to whatever you want
  13. self made skins cause no problem if done correctly - i have been using one i designed through MX3 4 and 5 - others here would say the same - as to themes - well joe with 2 hats will be happy to hear that
  14. thats interesting news - if the internal people are working on skins it will be a first - from MX2 they have pushed nothing more that the stock skin - as to skins in the link you put up - i have not checked each post but the bulk of what was there has been deleted - there are skins on the Chinese forum - apart from that i dont think you will find many here again i question what the devs are doing - is that wishful thinking - guesswork or a fact
  15. skins are down to the members who post them - mainly Wilser and he has decided to withdraw support and the download links 5.01 skins do work on 5.02 - they have changed the 0.dat and 1.dat name to UIHuge and UIMain.dat - caught me out but its as simple as renaming the files
  16. sure it could be done with a skin but no one here is doing skins at the moment - you could look on the chinese forum there may be one there
  17. fully customise it to my liking thats worth repeating - I CAN FULLY CUSTOMISE MX5 TO MY LIKING - well as long as i want to only hide the side bar so to whoever wrote that crap this is my MX5 - its fully customised but not with any help from you the only help i got/get from the devs is they removed some code to stop my CUSTOMISED side favourites bar working so i am stuck on 1200 - adding it back would go a long way to allowing me to customise to my liking on the latest builds
  18. fortunately there is 4.9 for the few that still support Maxthon - 5 is just internal vanity - in business as in life we all get things wrong - putting sticking plasters on something that is terminally broken will do no good how do those of us that still think Maxthon is good have to say it and be taken notice of rather than ignored - vanity is a terrible affliction - those that make the decisions should step outside and look in - see all the loyal users that have gone and ask why all my opinion of course - as ever it will not register
  19. who thought that up - who thinks users want that rather than a 'simple' browser there is a saying - a camel is a horse designed by a committee - MX5 is going that way - whatever its supposed to be it is meaningless if no one uses it and the member and post count here suggest that Hell even some of those with coloured names post they do not use Maxthon as their browser of choice - just support it in the hope that it might get back to its roots - what does that say about the 'information assistant'
  20. all true - its all smoke and mirrors to confuse the poor users
  21. some code from 0,dat <!-- History Button --> <!-- <div class="item nav-history" mx-object="ui.navHistoryButton" mx-listen="$(on-NavHistory)$" " title="$history.recentList$" style="behavior:popup-menu; context-menu: selector(#POPUP_HISTORY);" menu="#POPUP_HISTORY" align-context-menu="bottom"> <div class="icon"></div> </div> --> for those that dont understand it that is the history button that is coded into the standard skin - so its there and would show on the navbar but someone has chosen to hide it from users - WHY? - for what purpose there are similar examples in the main drop down menu of commented out settings - settings that users have asked for - who decides such things and [again] why?
  22. another good addon - its a shame the devs and those that waste time on ui log in animation could not put that time to better use and add them in the core browser something is badly wrong with the thinking on bringing a full product to the users
