Second, yes I googled and used the Search Tool, but I just can't find the kind of answer I was looking for. I'm sure these questions someone has already asked before (especially the "How-to" question below), I just couldn't get to the post, so flame me if you must, but help me still if you can.
Okay now, with all that being said, for my first question I need help identifying somethings, which I believe to either be a certain skin or custom made buttons.
I have looked around the forums, and I found this post about Creating Buttons. (By the way, I'm still a bit iffy about the terminology of Skin, not completely sure if "Skin" and "custom made buttons" have a difference or not, other than that "Skin" is a .ini file and can be a lot of things.)
There's also this other one desktop I saw, he had hotkeys of just "words". I saw this awhile ago, and sadly I did not save the picture, but I'll do my best to describe it in words. Basically his shortcuts were words, and instead of "doube clicking" them, he can single click; just like those RocketDock icons except it doesn't bounce or do anything crazy. Now, I'm wondering if this is also a "Custom made button" thing, or is there a skin that does this kind of thing (/similar to this kind of thing).
I'm asking if there's a skin for this kind of stuff because well... 1) yea I'm lazy. 2) If it's a skin, there's more than likely that either by the same author or the skin might come with something cool I like along with it. [My hope of killing 2 or more birds with one stone].
Second question, the "How-to".
I want to know/read/learn on how to two 2 things:
1) Allow the "News" to show my facebook things
2) How to config a slightshow skin.
(1) I'm having problems with Enigma's RSSreader to show my facebook things. I googled this and found someone asking the same thing, but the person got it working fine after restarting his/her computer, which didn't work for me. I think I have to "login" somewhere... but I can't find the place at all after going through the config and the edit .ini notepad.
(2) I downloaded LongHorn's slideshow skin (found on Deviant Art), and I was wondering if there's a guide or place with instructions on how to... do all the config.
For example, I have 100 pictures, how exactly would I go about making them to all show in this slideshow?
Code: Select all

The size of the "box" that the pictures are gonna be shown in is small, which values do I change to make it bigger? (I'm guessing it's the X, Y, H, W. and I have changed those, saved and refreshed the skin, but nothing changed, it stayed the same size, what did I do wrong?)
Also if possible, is there some sort of code to give each picture shown on this, a 5 second interval before it changes?
(I'm basically wanting a slideshow similar to Vista's sidebar, and so far this skin is the best one I've seen all day [literaly], if you have or know of a "better" slideshow skin, please suggest it to me).
Well, that's all.
Thanks in advance, even a simple link to the right direction or to a guide/instruction page would be a great help.
and sorry for my English, I apologize if some parts seem... weird and makes no sense at all.
