Rhoss1, you should be able to switch the dock to the right side by clicking on the right pointing arrow at the top of the bar and dragging the entire thing to the right edge. Just make sure to follow the directions in the description and move the expanded weather and calendar, otherwise they will be off the screen.

- I figured out a couple behaviors on my desktop regarding the controls. If I click the control background the z-order moves it in front when the sidebar is both on the left and right side of the screen. When I do that I can't access the controls and have to reload the sidebar.
- On the right side the background, plus, and minus controls appear to not be locked down and can be dragged around.
- The close button on the clock selector can be dragged around.
- I looked at the properties in builder and they are all locked so I don't know what's up with that. I'll keep looking into it.

All the above objects that were supposed to be locked down aren't, so you might want to lock em.
Even if the background is locked the z-order still raises it above the controls you want to get at. I don't know how you link the controls to the background so that the controls are always above the background. I don't know enough about desktopX yet.
Anyhow, I hope that bit of bug-hunting helps.

I found one more that's more of a tweak I made for myself. I added a - 20 factor to the "start button" so that it would appear above my task bar and I locked it down. A thought:
What about an enable/disable control for the vista start button in case someone is using a task-bar and doesn't want two buttons at once? I think it's pretty cool but if there was one feature on the bar that might want a toggle that could be it. You could make the blank area look like a circle where it normally goes. Click to turn it back on. What do you think? Just an idea.

man I think your version of this vista sidebar is the greatest. Looks great and works great. I would like to ask if the slideshow code could be edited so that as your viewing the slideshow and you see an image you like, you could "left click" on the slideshow image and have it set as your wallpapaer?
Thanks in advance....

SirBedwyr, I missed your post, sorry. I figure there isn't much of a difference between a grey circle or the Vista logo, since they'd both take up the same amount of space. If theres really a demand for a blanked out logo, I'll include it in the future since its not that hard to do. I just don't like updating this thing since its pretty big and takes a while to upload on my slow connection.

Thank you very much
Ok I was able to remove the clock choose by editing the script, thanks for the infor you've posted in your other link!
Here's one last question, please the picture I've posted, based on the screen shot it seems mine doesn't function correctly. Also I don't have any idea how to use it, ehehe.

That is indeed an RSS reader. It looks a little funny in your screenshot because the Wincustomize RSS uses some extra format tags that I don't know how to get rid of. To add your own RSS feed, put the rss link (e.g. for Slashdot, http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot) into the "Feed Link" box. Put the name of the feed (it can be whatever you want) into the "Feed Title" box. Then push the arrow next to "Add Feed". That should add your feed into the reader.
Hope that helps. If you have any problems, let me know.
Oh and I know its pretty annoying that the windows keeps popping up on a restart. I've been meaning to upload a minor update that fixes it, but I just haven't gotten around to it. It'll probably be up in a few days or so.

1. Close DesktopX and the sidebar.
2. Open the start menu and select Run
3. Type regedit into the box that pops up and press enter.
4. In the Window that pops up, navigate to the
My Computer->HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Stardock->DesktopX->Widget folder.
5. In the Widget folder, there should be a folder called PicFramer. Delete this folder.
6. Start up the sidebar and the picture frame settings should now be reset.
Hope this works. If it doesn't, let me know, though I'm not sure how else to fix the problem.
Also if anyone has problems with the RSS feeder, you can reset its settings the same way, but by deleting the Brncofan7 folder instead of the Picframer folder.
