View Full Version : Fishbone Theme suggestions

I like the Fishbone theme. However, I'd like to request/suggest some UI modifications.

1)
In the left frame, the Queue/Play/Add/Remove icons are too far away from the artist/album/folder/etc title.
I suggest moving the icons from the far right of the frame to the far left of the frame.
Alternately you could colour every other line in the lists.
The current workaround is to just resize the frame so that the icons are closer to the titles.


2)
I edited status_header.html to place the following links next to the SqueezeBox logo.
"Web Players: SoftSqueeze / stream.mp3
Sleep / Client Settings / Undock"

With the addition of the Web players, I can directly play things from the web browser. SoftSqueeze opens the applet in a new window.
Changing "Settings" to "Client Settings" is just a clarification of what the link does.



Thanks for the hard work in writing the theme.

You can customise as you wish:
try copying the [% contentitem %] section from HTML/EN/cmdwrappers to
HTML/Fishbone/cmdwrappers_fishbone, and then move the [%- content |
indent(4) %] line after the [% IF controls ... %] block.

you could evne make your own custom skin just by using that new file
and your custom status_header.html in their own folder, adding a text
file named skinconfig.yml with the following contents:

---
skinparents:
- Fishbone

This makes your custom skin use Fishbone skin for everything that you
don't customise yourself. You'll get to do more of your own tweaks,
and they wont be squashed if/when you update to newer versions.

mmmm
Tried soemthing like that a bit blindly and it didn't work.
I'll have to bug you some more post-July 4th, when I have time to explore and test.
