View Full Version : fishbone skin can't go home

I'm seeing what appears to me to be a buglette in the fishbone skin.
On the left frame, at the top, it shows the slim logo on the left corner
and three active text tags on the right: home / server settings / help

But if I try to mouse to the Home link, it does a roll over to "Music
folder"

The specific problem this causes is that I can't get to player-settings

This might be a feature, but it looks like a bug to me.

Version info:

SlimServer Version: 6.5.1 - 10833 - RedHat - EN - utf8
Server IP address: 172.16.4.10
Perl Version: 5.8.8 i386-linux
MySQL Version: 5.0.21-standard

OS: Mandriva 2007 on some level of AMD 3200++

It's a feature. "Home" will go to whatever you've selected in the drop-down menu. Player settings are available via the link in the right pane.

technically, Fishbone skin is always home. The top section, with the
pulldown full of browse, radio, and plugin links is the home page found
on most other skins. "Home" then becomes whatever you last chose from
the pulldown, which starts you over at the top level of whatever thing
you were doing last. The "roll-over" in the name is just a nice way to
remind you of where you are going. Basically, it could just go away,
leaving you to select from the pulldown at all times. However, it
isn't easy to make a pulldown operate when selecting the already
selected option. Thus we're back to the "home" link.

OK, not too obvious.
I think I don't like the way it rollover changes the target, or at least
the appearance of the target.

Wow, I'd never have thought to try that one.
