    Thank you very much mattsk88, I tried the RSS plugin using the method you described and it works great! It was a bit of fiddling though, I needed to re-enable the RSS option in the config of Home plugin, but after that it works flawless! Aeon keeps getting on better and better everyday :)

    In your screenshots i noticed you don't have the dark area in the middle of the menubar. Did you leave that image out on purpose? I really think it makes the highlighted item stand out more.

    If you copy this image to your Aeon wide\Media folder and clear the cache it should show up.

    The image below shows what it looks like

    Hi Sambal

    One of the problems i have found is not everyone is good with editing the media files to get rid of the size in the picture, so its better to rar\zip them.

    So have done a White\Black version, whichever one you want, just remove the colour from the name.

    Still looking at keeping your last one as default though.

    Need to get this uploaded as some sort of release, with Psycho Reptile\MP Users as Author

    Anyone got any objection to this, if not i will try and upload in the next few Days.

    SVN also does not have the media folder !!

    :D

    I linked back to the original image of my earlier post. I didn't know you cannot view the original image if you attach it that way. However, i guess you're right, it didn't occur to me people could have trouble getting the images. I always right click the image and select 'open in new tab/window' that way you can easily save the original image, no editing necessary. I will pack future images/xml's to make things simpler.

    The Media folder is located here:
    svnroot/mp-plugins/trunk/skins/Aeon Wide/Aeon wide/Media
    Or did you mean something else?

    I will upload the new BasicHome.xml and image to svn and create new folders for the different TV-Series layouts. I think it is safe to make Option #4 ( see this post ) the default TV-Series layout.

    A new packaged release would be very nice :)

    Just got a really weird BasicHome from svn, showing white lettering on grey background as the default, should be this one, i think, can someone else check this for me.

    This should be default (Sambal version)

    Ignore the media folder, going blind as well as daft :)

    I committed my version to svn( Image and BasicHome.xml) but i forgot to add the new fonts definition :oops:. Can you please try an update again and clear your cache. I did a clean checkout and it looks okay on my box.

    What about merging Sambal's and PD's Basichome.xml with mattsk88's RSS version? It's a nice feature to add...

    OK maybe cross downloaded whilst Sambal was uploading :)

    This is the result you get with BasicHome file in svn atm.

    At least you can read from a distance :D

    Light or dark as a default, even though i prefer the original, could the lettering be made lighter without user intervention (not White), going off to have a play see if can get a better shade of grey for menu lettering myself.

    WinMerge says the BasicHome.xml you post and the one in SVN are identical, so it must be something with the menu_item_bg.png.

    I got the colours from the original images, the selected item had a gradient so i took an average value. A lighter shade of grey would be fine ofcourse.
