v17 How: Change Movie Content on Main Page
#1
Question 
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to change the content that shows up under the Movies section of the Main Screen.


Any ideas on how to do this? I see the Edit Categories section but no changes there have any impact to what I see on the Main Page.

If you're just trying to change the stuff in the CATEGORIES section, then after you make changes with Node Editor you need to restart Kodi. As for the rest, you can't change any of that with the default version of Estuary. I have a mod available that will let you turn widgets on and off, but not reorder them. There's a mod of the original Estuary that let's you reorder and even change the widgets.

I found a decent workaround using Favorites.

Here's what I did:
  1. Configured Trakt Account
  2. Set Favorites for each 'Trakt List'.
    --One favorite for each Movie and TV List. My Lists include: Family, Kids, Mom and Dad
  3. Renames, ReSorted, Added Thumbnails

 Can you elaborate on this solution? I'm trying to do the same thing, but not really able to follow the vague instructions

not sure if you mean change with something else
edit home.xml
look for the one
 <include content="WidgetListPoster" condition="Library.HasContent(movies)">
       <param name="content_path" value="special://skin/playlists/inprogress_movies.xsp"/>
       <param name="widget_header" value="$LOCALIZE[31010]"/>
       <param name="widget_target" value="videos"/>
       <param name="list_id" value="5100"/>
      </include>
this points to the playlist folder
inprogress_movies.xsp
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="movies">
    <name>In-progress movies</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="inprogress" operator="true" />
    <limit>15</limit>
    <order direction="descending">lastplayed</order>
</smartplaylist>

will need to change
   <param name="list_id" value="5100"/> to some thing like 5101

add a line to the widget list
create smart play list
you need to find where it is saved (search for file name and copy in to skin folder playlists)

now edit home.xml
find 
< include content="WidgetListCategories" condition="Library.HasContent(movies) + !Skin.HasSetting(home_no_categories_widget)">
                            <param name="content_path" value="library://video/movies/"/>
                            <param name="widget_header" value="$LOCALIZE[31148]"/>
                            <param name="widget_target" value="videos"/>
                            <param name="list_id" value="5900"/>
                        </include>
now copy and paste this you can add this anywhere in the "Library.HasContent(movies)
  <include content="WidgetListPoster" condition="Library.HasContent(movies)">
                            <param name="content_path" value="special://skin/playlists/carry_on_ultimate_collection.xsp"/>
                            <param name="widget_header" value="CARRY ON"/>
                            <param name="widget_target" value="videos"/>
                            <param name="list_id" value="5402"/>
                        </include>
the name of your file will replace "carry_on_ultimate_collection.xsp"

the playlist file
< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
< smartplaylist type="movies">
    <name>CARRY ON</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="title" operator="contains">
        <value>CARRY ON</value>
    <limit>50</limit>
    </rule>
< /smartplaylist>

now edit Includes_Home.xml
< content sortby="$PARAM[sortby]" sortorder="$PARAM[sortorder]" target="$PARAM[widget_target]" limit="150">$PARAM[content_path]</content>
change to the number of movies  i put limit="150" as a test
