How to add a new "category" to a Skin?

helule » June 9th, 2010, 3:05 am

Enigma\Sidebar\EVEREST for example, with its correspondant *.ini for showing registry values for CPU/GPU/MB temperature readings.

I have created a folder called EVEREST on the skin (Enigma) and put a custom *.ini inside. Plus, I've added the following lines to Rainmeter.ini file:

[Enigma\Sidebar\EVEREST]
Active=0
SnapEdges=0
KeepOnScreen=0
AlwaysOnTop=-2
LoadOrder=0

But when I right-click the skin, I don't see any EVEREST folder/ini so I guess that's not the way to do it :D

Any help?

Thanks in advance.

No, it's not the way to do it.

* Put the skin in the folders you want in MyDocs\Skins.
* Do a "Refresh All" of Rainmeter from the context menu
* Now load the new skin from the Rainmeter context menu.

All the stuff in Rainmeter.ini will be added automatically, you can adjust them from the context menu or RainBrowser.
