  1. Why not post and pin the 'skin file' in this board so all interested can try their hand? Just wondering what's the holdup? <<SL>>
  2. Hello NaxthonJeff and a happy new year.

    I have been wondering two things about *.mx5skins:

    1) Isn't it time to post the mx5skin SDK tutorial in the public Skin Forum here, so that others can make use of it?

    and

    2) How about finishing the skin maker so that mods can be made to both UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat (and even page.dat for some skin makers)?  I'd be OK with just UIMain/UIHuge mods, since I've not ventured into page.dat mods, though I have used some in Mx4 days.

    That's it for now.  I really hope to see complete mx5skin support finished.

    Have a good day,

  3. Hi MaxthonFan,

    I've been wondering if it's not time to post the *.mx5skin tool kit and tutorial in the public Skin Forum?  Are further developments in the works ?

    I know some skin makers (e.g., Yoyoako) in yhe Chinese Forum have made some, but I don't see any tutorial updates other than a title change and a replacement tutorial on that forum.

    Unfortunately, I've not been able to successfully log onto their new 3/4-part authetification scheme; I can't pass the captcha step. 

    Let me know what you think, please.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Have a happy New Year.

      I don't know it it is really worth it.  Remember the one guy we had doing skins? He got so bombed out by people just keeping asking for small changes to his skins and then insulting him when they didn't get what they wanted and Maxthon changing everything so that all his efforts didn't work anymore. I guess if the instructions were a little bit easier, more people could do their own skins but people now-a-days want just a couple of clicks to change things and since that isn't going to happen they get tired of asking.

      If the skin makers over in the Chinese forum would post their skins here so that we could just download and install that would be fantastic, but I don't think they will.  We can ask the Bugs and see what they say.

  4. @Subgoku: Any chanceyou might update this to 5.2.5.x/5.2.6.x? <<SL>>
  5. There was a new option added in MainMenu>Settings>Advanced>Web Page Display called Page Font Size. The default is "Medium but theree's a problem with recognition of this setting initially, so pages display ultra-tiny (fonts and images). You can correct it by changing "Medium" from that to another setting and back to Medium. Easier is to click "Set to Default" button. I think this is good for a Mx5 session, but may need repeating each time you launch until a fix is made - inconvenient to be sure. <<SL>>
  6. Perhaps you missed the update in settings adding font size oreference in MainMenu>settings>Advanced>Fonts. It is in the Change Log. I did recall that when I ran into extremely tiny fonts on ABC.com. Clicking "Reset to Default" clears the problem and it has been permanent since then. <<SL>>
  7. YouTube Center is discontiued and no longer works with YT's new interface. <<SL>>
  8. Re: Normal? Yes it has always been possible that the skin might fail on a later version due to changes and new features. You're using 5.1.3.1000, bit the skin is for 5.1.2.1000. I don't know whether such changes occured between these versions. If you didn't backup or rename UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat and if you used it) the start folder im Maxthon (or Maxthon_Portable\bin\, then you'll have to re-install (or re-unzip) to recover those files and folder. If you have backups, just replace those files from your backups. <<SL>>

    adguard

    I am puzzled by Adguard adblocker extension ... specifically how does one ad a custom filter subscription. There is a substantial listing of variations of EasyList and of other specialized list, but I cannot find and where to ad a subscription other than the ones listed. There is provision to add custom rules one by one. Surely there must be a way to add whole lists by subscription. Any help? <<SL>>
  10. If I read Zork correctly, Arowana skin is Snapper adapted for MX5 with lessons learned from Snapper. @Zork, did I read you correctly? It's not identical of course because MX4 * MX4 are different. I like it but I want tabs under the navbar & favbar. But I can do that trivial change. <<SL>>
  11. Yes, seeing that the title makes sense. Is the extension on the extension center? I thought the OPer had forgotten a link (I overlooked extension center then). It's like Lights Out on steroids <<SL>>
  12. Extention or skin??? I don't know which ... and the title doesn't seem proper; there's no "blackout" on YT, only on Maxthon . <<SL>>
  13. Maybe (untested) the max tab width parameter skin.ini is overriding the constant. Try changing both.but don't forget the skin.ini parameter has two values (without and with padding). BTW, I left you a PM about how you got Firefox to be one bar (tab+nav bar.. Since then I found the Mozilla Labs "OneLine" addon, but decided not to try it since it's identified by them as experimental, opens up FF and its data, and one comment about how to revert. Not my cup of tea for now. Is this what you're using? <<SL>>
  14. Change this in constants.css in UIMain: Tabs */ @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip; One shot does it all. BTW that width is 1.92 inches on a PC regardless of screen size.resolution. For me it may too big. But determine how wide you want the tabs in inches and multiply by 96 to get width in dip. <<SL>>
