The first UseBits hyperlink leads to a 404 page because there's a missing # in the href
Here's the line https://github.com/rainmeter/rainmeter-docs/blob/master/source/manual/measures/net.html#L14
Fixed. Thanks.

https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/distributing-skins/#MergeSkins

In the Merge Skins section, in the sentence "Note: This option is not compatible with the Variables files option." the link in Variables is missing the anchor "#" sign.

Currently: https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/distributing-skins/VariablesFiles
Should be: https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/distributing-skins/#VariablesFiles

In this post there is a link (http://rainmeter.net/cms/Tips-WeatherSkinTranslate) to a tip, which doesn't work anymore. Should be fixed to the working, in meantime updated URL (https://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/webparser-weather-skin-translations/). Or maybe the link and the whole topic should be removed, because I think it doesn't apply anymore. Please check.

Apparently Rainmeter has Bitwise Shift operators (<<, >>) that are not mentioned in the manual
THIS WAS FOUND BY NEK

EDIT: Found out why, it's undocumented on purpose

The Name option is included on the [Metadata] page and the Manage page, even though that option has been obsolete for a few years now

You don't name your skins?! ;-)

I think all 5 options are just right!
Skin Name, Author, Information, Version, and License...

I do, everytime I go to sleep I say the name of each one and then say "Good Night" and end the day with a little bed time story

But that's beside the point, the Name field used to be shown when the Manage Window was still called RainBrowser (aprox. 11 years ago), the Config in the image below is Geekskins\StaticQuote and one of the selected Skins/Variants (outside the frame) below has Name=Static Quote (that's why the space appears) inside [Metadata] or [Rainmeter].

Idk the option is just... there, just wanted to point it out again on the forums, just finding these stuff out since I'm bored :v

Re: Small docs suggestions - Tuple

Post by Jeff »

Just the small suggestion of adding the tuple return function to the Update section of the Lua Scripting page
  • return 99, 'Ninety-Nine'
    Provides 99 as the number value and 'Ninety-Nine' as the string value. Usage depends on a Measure's individual binding, the values can also be retrieved using Measure Section Variables (Example: Text="Num = [MeasureScript:] | Str = [MeasureScript]").
    (Note: Order of values doesn't mater.)
Here's the HTML code that should be put if you actually want to copy paste what I wrote word for word without changing anything

Code: Select all

<li><p><code>return 99, 'Ninety-Nine'</code><br>Provides <em>99</em> as the number value and <em>'Ninety-Nine'</em> as the string value. Usage depends on a Measure's individual binding, the values can also be retrieved using <a href="https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/variables/section-variables/#MeasureParameters">Measure Section Variables</a> (<b>Example:</b> <code>Text="Num = [MeasureScript:] | Str = [MeasureScript]"</code>).<br>(<b>Note:</b> Order of values doesn't mater.</p></li>
