Absolutely loving your addon, but I have a strange request:

I want to add a link to the regular xbmc favorites among the other super folders (kind of as its own folder, if you will)
I manually shoe-horned in a favourites.xml into the main super favorites direcroty with ActivateWindow(favourites) as its target. For some reason, it just hands for a second and does nothing.

I know what you're thinking: you already have a feature which allows XBMC Favorites to be one of the options among the super folders (Explore XBMC favorites, you call it), why do I want this. Well, 2 reasons:
1. When you activate this feature, it puts the "Explore XBMC Favorites" option in ALL the folders, not just the root dir of super folders. this can be very confusing for first-time/simple users.

2. I like to put my own thumbnails on things (which is something I love about your addon) but you're not allowed to do it on the Explore XBMC Favorites option!

So my request to you is: Either how can I make that ActivateWindow(favourites) work, or please make it so you can have "Explore XBMC Favorites" option show up ONLY in the root SuperFolders directory (if you choose) AND the ability to put a thumbnail to this option.

If that is at all possible, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi,

Is possible to add an option from a context menu as a super fave?

Example: If i go to Files, TV, context menu, Edit Source. Is it possble to add "Edit Source" as a fav, so I can then add that to my keybindings?

I will definitely look into it for you.

Just had a quick look and it isn't obvious how to get hold of the context menu information, but I have a dig and see what I can find.

Hello spoyser,
In my set up I encounter an issue.I can add a file in super favorites but if it's name is in Greek language(mostly addons I use) I can't see it.It can be played but the big problem is that if I add e.g. 10 files I don't know who is who.

Thanks for the great addon and keep up the great work!

Can u add one of them to the normal xbmc favourites and then upload the favourites.xml to a pastebin site.

The file is located in the xbmc/user_data folder

The specific addon doesn't have the option to add to xbmc favourites,so I use the context override menu and add it to super addon
The only way I found to add it to xbmc favorites is to create an m3u file inside xbmc: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cg0m4ug9akly3f...urites.xml

Cheers for that, I have a look into displaying other characters.

Just to confirm, when you select Add to Super Faves it works, you just get no name displayed?

Can you then rename it via the context menu?

One final thing, can you create a super folder called test and then use the context Add To Super Faves to put one in it. Then upload the favourites.xml file from the user_data\plugin.program.super.favourites\test

I noticed something if it helps you: I add a movie from my library and the name is displayed correct.(All movies scraped with nfo's.all the titles are in greek)
The files in "test" folder come from addon
