Hello! great skin, love the clean look!  How can I add a password that contains special characters?  My password has an @ in it.  Also if I have the 2 line player loaded, if i click the weather it loads the player instead?

hey, I have a problem with the weather widget. 
I managed to change the temperature the way you told others to, so getting the code location from yahoo. But it stills shows Manchester for some reason and I live no where near Manchester. The temperature is correct, so is there a way to just change the name?

I can't figure out how to get the text time to show in 12 hour format, when I change the %I the hour always disappears, is there a way to fix this? or is it 24 hours for text only?

1. 

Go look up your location on yahoo weather, find your "WeatherCode" in the URL. It should be the 7 digit string of numbers at the end of the URL. For example, Portland Oregon's is 2475687, found below.


2. 

After you've found that number, copy it and paste it into the URL in the weather skin.ini file. Mine looks like this:


3. 

One last thing. Change the "p" right before the WeatherCode in that URL to a "w," as seen here:

You have to remove whole [Mstring] section and "Hidden=1" parameter from [Mstring2].
Mouse actions on [BG] will be useless then, so you can remove these parameters as well.

I love your skin, but one thing that bothers me is that the lines next to each of the words are slightly different.

For example, CPU and SWAP have lines that look one pixel wide and clean, but RAM and MAIL have lines that look to be two pixels wide, and looks like its kind of fading.

I've messed around in the files for each .ini, but I'm no professional and I can't seem to find a solution, any help?

I cannot get the weather skin to work.

I put this in "url=[link]"
and it just displays the degree symbol even after I refresh or restart the skin and program.

Anyone have this problem and could help me with a solution?

Hey, love the skin, but I just have one problem. When using the text clock, if it is past 8pm, it will not say the hour, only the minute, i.e. "fifty one" at 8:51, 9:51, 10:51, 11:51, 12:51 (might be more than just these hours effected, but I haven't tested past this time). Everything else works fine. Any idea what's wrong and/or possible fixes? Thanks in advance.

You have to download and install Rainmeter, then unpack .rmskin file from downloaded archive. .rmskin will be now recognized as Skin file, with automatic installer.

I would really like to see a text display option for time, so instead of 4:55 it displays four fifty-five. This can be seen here on my phone's homescreen via the minimalistic text app [link] I was playing around with the code and I was not quite sure how I'd be able to accomplish this. Anybody have any idea?
