How can I show the date / day of week below the time?

I think Confluence had that option, maybe even earlier versions of Estuary did as well? I cant remember, getting old (that's why I need the date below the time Smile

Using a fresh install of LibreELEC here, sporting Kodi18.

There's no option for it built in. It's a bit tricky to achieve that as you are using LibreELEC Wink. You have to copy the full skin to /storage/.kodi/addons and also rename that folder (for identification) to e. g. "skin.estuary-vogelmann". That's done via the following commands:

You need to SSH in and then:
cp -R /usr/share/kodi/addons/skin.estuary/ /storage/.kodi/addons/

now you have a copy at another location. Now you need to rename the skin-folder:
mv /storage/.kodi/addons/skin.estuary /storage/.kodi/addons/skin.estuary-vogelmann

change to that directory:
cd /storage/.kodi/addons/skin.estuary-vogelmann

Now you should first add the skin name. Edit the "addon.xml"-file and change:
<addon id="skin.estuary" version="2.0.21" name="Estuary" provider-name="phil65, Ichabod Fletchman">

to

<addon id="skin.estuary" version="2.0.21" name="Estuary-Vogelmann" provider-name="phil65, Ichabod Fletchman">

and safe the file.

Now we do the real change to add the date to the skin:

change to the "xml" directory:
cd xml

and then edit the "Includes.xml"-file. At this file search for the line where "$INFO[System.Time]" is mentioned and modify this line from:

<label>$INFO[System.Time]</label>
to
<label>$INFO[System.Time] | $INFO[System.Date(d.m.yy)]</label>

After that all is done the skin should look like:

If you want a 4-digit year or a 2-digit number for the day and the month, please modify the line like:

<label>$INFO[System.Time] | $INFO[System.Date(dd.mm.yyyy)]</label>

 I think if you go in and edit your original post there is a menu right next to the title with some drop down options. One of the ones in the list is SOLVED.

Thanks! This put me on the right track!

I made mine:
<label>$INFO[System.Date(DDD)] • $INFO[System.Date(d MMM)] • $INFO[System.Time]</label>

This should at least be a selectable setting. It doesn't make sense to have it as a default for smaller devices but works great on a TV!
