Well some of you guys may remember me from the old Media Front Page days. I have been relying on MFP for a long time, it has been indispensable to me. Once the final release of Eden was out, I thought I needed to jump on the band wagon. I have 2 XBMC machines on my network, running XBMC Live - and now XBMCbuntu. All my media is stored on an unRAID server. So naturally, MFP does not work well Eden. So I came to find out about Maraschino.
I have to congratulate and thank MrKipling, Gugahoi, DejaVu, Nemesis
(sorry for the nickname typo - minor dyslexia) and all others for their outstanding work.
In no time I was up and running Maraschino, and I am not a Linux guy. I know enough to do what I need to do (after a lot of Googling) and have to re-learn again when months pass without me needing to do anything. I am a designer by profession, and can muddle very slightly in basic html, Understanding CSS is a struggle to me.
As a designer, I always want to tweak things so they work better for me. MFP was one of those projects. With Maraschino, everything is pretty great. I do have some suggestions. Unfortunately, some of these are not so easy for me to implement.
A) Create the option of having a 4 column version
. I was able to edit the columns.less file to create the following. I just don't know how to implement being able to add modules to this column. This is in anticipation of the RSS Feed Module
B) Minor Suggestion.
Adding little icons to each of the module headers. I mocked up this in Photoshop. I have no clue how to implement this with my skill set.
C) On the Sickbeard Module. When looking at the upcoming episodes screen (as shown on my attached image), for each show banner, have the blue episode name and the 3 icon ONLY appear when hovering the cursor over the Show banner. Otherwise interface looks cluttered.
D) With the ability of having multiple XBMC servers, is there a way to quickly and easily identify which server you are on while looking at the screen? I would suggest a small text label at the top of the screen. This same label could be used to toggle to the other servers.
E) After a Couch Potato module (which lists your Wanted Movies); create a new module with a button that transfers $1 million dollars to my bank account. Something similar to what they did in the movie Office Space, except make it 100% legal.
On the Disk Space module, I want to add disks that are in my unRAID server. Maraschino is installed on my XBMCbuntu machines. I have tried the following and none work:
Guys, thanks again, and please let me know if there is anything I can help with.
With Maraschino, life is a bowl of cherries.
