You could change this screen to movies_details, and it should work the way you've indicated Scott. This is looking at the "Black and Silver" skin. I'm assuming the "Silver and Black" skin is the same.


I just Dl'd the Black and Silver skin and had the same problem noticed by work permit. I did the steps I outlined and I was taken to the movies_details page which already existed, this is the same page you would goto if you just clicked on one of the movies from the main movies page.
Maybe I missed something but I did it step by step as I wrote it, maybe I missed something :lol: :lol: won't be the first time.

Yeah I did not specify...thanks for clarifying that Marbles :D

I'm sorry Scott, I mis-read your instruction...when you said
Browse thru Skin, goto and select "movie details"
, I was trying to find the event movie_details...instead of going to the "GOTO" group and finding the event movie details...ooopppsss...me bad :oops:

All better now.

Yep, after re-reading I was not very clear with that. I edited my post, hopefully that makes more sense.

Thanks for letting me know. It sounded right to me because I was the one doing it but if I read that for the first time I would have assumed the same thing. :oops:

Thanks!!!!!

You know u guys are great, yes i have to hold my hands up and say i'm not the neatest when it comes to events and what not, i seem to muddle on thru. I am glad u found a solution, funny that it works on mine without changing anything (and as it works on mine i'm not gonna even try to correct, i have a habit of screwing my set up quite easily and then spend hours backtracking :shock: )

I'm sure work permit will appreciate the help!

No problem.

You should see my event list...I have old events mixed with new events, events I don't even use, and events I don't even remember making :lol: . My skin would be no where near being able to be posted like yours. Your skin is great !!!!!!

Good work :D

Same here...thing is, I'm afraid to take some of these events out just in case they have been tied to something important. But my list for sure could be shortened up. Or the way I'm going to think..."hey, someone may need them should they modify the skin...so they're there if required" :wink: That's my story, and I'm sticking with it. :)

Never feel like an idiot!!!! We all were new at this as well, and there is a learning curve for this software. Once you get it XLobby is an awesome program.

Boy does this sound familar. After I have developed something and put it on the shelf, it always seems like someone else wrote it. Now that my daughter is in calculus I pulled out my old college notes. Now talk about something foreign.
