Sorry keep asking this but never get a reply - I LOVE the album review and biography plugins and I think that Exbrowse3 could be best of the skins (for me) but i can't find out where those plugins appear in the skin - I can see them under plugins but no web pages. Anybody got a clue or are they just missing?

As I never use ExBrowse3 I don't even know, if there's a plugins
section... There does not seem to be.

If you've got only one player, you could define a bookmark in your browser
like eg.:
http://localhost:9000/plugins/Biography/index.html

Sorry - there's no plugins section in ExBrowse3 at the moment, as it
uses a completely different template layout from the other skins. I'm
hoping that the new template organization system (in 6.5) will make it
practical to include arbitrary plugins.

this is definitely a hack since I'm only slightly aware of what I'm doing. Please be aware, I'm only slightly aware of what I'm doing, but I really like the Exbrowse3 skin, so I wanted something, and this seems to work. So unzip the attached to /server/HTML/ExBrowse3. Restart SlimServer, make sure the task is really deal in the task manager.

Make sure you have the XML-RPC/JSON-RPC Interface plugin checked or you'll get a transport error.

Anyway, what these files will do is make a "Home" link on the front page of the ExBrowse3 screen, when you click it, it opens the "previous" skin's home screen, where you can access the Plugins.

I'm pretty sure there is some cache memory that's being used for the previous skin home.html, but in general this works on my comp. I've included an original version of the files called *_orig.* for anything bad that my happen, you should be able to restore the skin.

I'll try working on what I can make sense of and see if I can get something worked out with the caching. One problem is that ExBrowse3 doesn't even have a "home" type page!!! Ok let me know what anyone thinks
