Mr Beesley,

Links as in Favorites? If so, the best way would be to popup an Open File dialog in the Favorites directory and then have that selection load in the browser. Is that OK?

It's not possible (unfortunately) to use a standard object which displays a menu of a folder as clicking an item on that menu launches the file in a browser rather than the desktop.

I can look at dynamically building a menu based on folder contents, I'm just not sure how practical that will be.

Oh, and I like the Outlook sync idea. What would you like it to sync with? I was thinking a single note with the day's appointments on it. What about tasks etc. How would you like that to work? 1 note per task? What fields would you want on there?

Pardon my ignorance but I'm not entirely sure I understand what you mean when you say to "popup an Open File dialog in the Favorites directory." However, any idea that you have would surely work. I guess what was running through my head was this: under the browse tab, if there could be something like the "quick links" in the Desktop tab, whereby we could list our favorite websites right there. That was what was running through my mind.
Regarding the Outlook sync idea, I was mainly thinking 1 note per task, and your idea of 1 note with the day's appointments is great! Regarding what fields, I would suggest time, date, and category for the appointments and just the task description & category for the notes that are used for tasks. How does that sound? . . . I have to say that this is the most innovative, fun, practical Desktop Theme that I have ever seen . . . very ingenious. Great job, Martin. <img src="http://images3.sta

OK, I think that most of the requests are in there. Only specifying note fonts to do, which I may get around to at some point.

Very cool theme
Comment #26 Thursday, March 31, 2005 1:14 PM
jakehale and Beesley - This will depend on which version of DesktopX you have. Themes made for DesktopX3 are not compatible with DesktopX2.
Martin - Brilliant theme.

I cannot say any more about this theme, except I am going to copy it, change it to my favourite font, but the rest is simply brilliant. Give this Martin a knighthood now!

WOW! This is a truly incredible and beautiful theme!
Thank you for sharing this with us!

The updates are AWESOME. One small suggestion. Would it be possible to have individual notes for each task instead of 1 note that encompasses all the tasks? That way if a note were for one task, it could be deleted when that task was completed instead of having to finish all of the tasks in a given note before it could be deleted. Again, I LOVE the updates. The "favorites" link is great too!

What can I say?!?! Funtionality and beauty in one package. I hope you make a career out of these!!
Comment #32 Friday, April 01, 2005 2:31 AM
Thanks for the kind words all.

Mr. B, yes that's something I can do relatively easily, I just wanted to get the update finished and uploaded. If it were as simple as just drawing the notes it would already be done, but it's also a case of making sure notes dynamically created are not saved, cannot be edited, and can be completed via the dialogs.

Hopefully I'll get it done for you over the weekend and it'll be there Monday/Tuesday depending on how fast the moderation process is.

Great Theme!!!

It would bem SUPERB (and my default theme) IF I could use firefox as my browser!
it's so bad you can't choose your browser...

Comment #34 Friday, April 01, 2005 9:06 AM
The only reason that you can't choose your browser is that there is no Firefox ActiveX control. However, I really don't see that this is an issue as the browser built in is none standard. In theory I could make this tabbed, but the resource usage would be much higher and I don't think this is an acceptable trade off.

How do you guys get the newssection to update?
this theme is running for 1 week straight now and it still says: "awaiting news update"
I've entered a correct rss-feed. I even changed it back to the original rss-feed and to the example-feed, but it is still saying "awaiting news update"
Can someone help me?
Comment #36 Tuesday, April 05, 2005 3:25 PM
Try the manual update button
Comment #37 Wednesday, April 06, 2005 8:37 AM
Awesome skin but the volume contol doesn't work on XP SP2 using WMP as the default. Just letting you know!
Comment #38 Thursday, April 07, 2005 2:38 AM
Volume works fine here on XP SP2 using WMP as the default.
Comment #39 Friday, April 08, 2005 6:13 PM
I already tried the manual update button but it still keeps saying: "awaiting news update"
Other skins don't have that problem, so what am I doing wrong here?

Nevertheless... Awesome theme!!! I think I'll be using this one for a looooong time
