How to skin MR?

Post by Dreadlau » Mon Aug 17, 2009 2:06 pm

Hello, skinners

I would like to make some modification to a MonkeyRok skin.
But I have no experience in that. I looked at the css and html files and didn't know what do :(

What I'm trying achieve is:

-having MR only showing the "external panel 1"
This means to hide all the other informations, panels, headers, ...

-Increase a bit the font size.

-Brighten the hyper-links font color.

If someone could help me or point me to some resource explaining how it works. Would be much appreciated.

(The skin I want to edit is animated_eclipse2)

Thx for you help!

Greetings

Hm ,i am no expert in script things

make a copy of your skinfile you want to edit and rename it ,
now you can start to edit and test it.

The most panels you can hide in the new MR 4.1 options,

The hyper-links must be ( a {color:#2D2D2D;} ) in the css file,

if you want to hide the infos you can delete this in the html file

Code: Select all

<div id="info_played"></div>
<div id="info_rating"></div>
<div id="info_lastplayed"></div>
<div id="info_added"></div>
<div id="info_extra"></div>
or maybe more iam not shure

Thank you very much M :)

Here's a little update:

-Found the hyper-links color in the css.

-Found the font-size too.

-Infos are deleted.

-I hided all the panels I didn't want in MonkeyRok by clicking on the headers.
then added " display:none; " at the end of the header section " in the css file.

Seems to work, but I suppose it may not be the best solution
cause the main panel (the one on the top) doesn't remember is "hide" status.

So I still have to find a way to hide the album cover image.

Here's a screen-shot of what it looks like.

Another update:

I found the new hiding options in MR4.1 :D
(Thank you for that Trixmoto!)

But I'm still trying to figure a way to hide the information panel completely.

No offense intended but I don't understand the purpose of having MonkeyRok if you're hiding everything. :-?

@ Vyper:

I searched the forum but didn't find other script for fetching biography.
Considering I'm running out of space on my screen, I'm not interested in showing more information than that.
