maybe i'm missing the option somewhere

my existing sub-category widgets still work if i don't change anything, but one of the recent updates removed/hid the option to toggle them

The option can be found in the category's options, not for the individual submenu item.

It's not an individual per item setting -- the setting applies to the whole category -- so it was actually in the wrong place before hence the move.

I'm actually piggy backing on this subject jurial:

My question has to do with being able to implement a custom link for the 'Category as a Widget' option.

In other words, there's some custom actions that I would add (namely creating a category as widget for each LiveTV channel group, that I can organize by Last Channel Played) which was a similar set up to AH2

Now, I completely understand there's options that cannot be ported over because of the complex structure of Fuse. But I'm just curious. And of course, I'm fine with my set up as is, just always looking to tinker around haha!

It is actually possible with static submenu items, just needs a minor manual edit of the config file to add a target so that the submenu shortcut works.

1. Add some static PVR submenu items for e.g. TVGuide (doesn't matter as we will edit them)
2. Choose Action > Edit to change the path from ActivateWindow(TVGuide) to your custom pvr:// path for the widget e.g. -- pvr://channels/tv/<GROUPNAME>
3. Set your submenu widget options
4. Rebuild widgets and your submenu widgets should now work. However, the actual submenu items will do nothing when clicked because they don't have a target window.

To get the click action to work, just need to edit the config file with Kodi closed to add a target window to the submenu items.

You can find configs in:
kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.skinvariables/nodes/skin.arctic.fuse/

Filenames should be fairly obvious. Then find the category item and the submenu should look something like:
json:

"submenu": [
{
"label": "TV Group",
"icon": "special://skin/extras/icons/livetv.png",
"path": "pvr://channels/tv/<GROUPNAME>",
"target": "",
"guid": "guid-b2d3f564"
}
]

All you need to do is add a target to "tvguide" or "tvchannels" so that Kodi knows what window to open the path shortcut in. Save file, restart Kodi, menu should rebuild and submenu items will now work (if it doesn't auto rebuild just force it from widget config window).

I'll add an option in next update to change target via GUI.

  • Hello @jurialmunkey. I tested several navigation options, behavior of the return key. The one that seems the most ergonomic is “previous”. However, it remains counterintuitive behavior. When you return to the side pane with the return key, it changes categories without being asked. More precisely, this causes two actions at once, the pointer ends up in the pane on the current category, and the background image brings us back to the Home category at the same time. I think there is something to refine on this side.

Misuderstanding about hub windows vs. widget categories. Pressing back from first category returns to the previous WINDOW. Focus in the previous window is where you left it (on the side menu).

You have started with the very most complicated and advanced mode in the skin. Your understanding is not yet advanced enough to use this mode. Start with a simpler mode. Only progress upwards to more complicated modes with more features once you understand the skin better.

I suggest you start with "Compound" mode as that will simplify setup by removing the side menu and give you something you are more familiar with.
"Skin Settings > Menus > Wizard > Compound"

  • Also, It would be great if when we are in the side pane, a simple click on the return key closes the pane and brings us back to the horizontal list of current categories.
Misunderstanding due to starting with most advanced mode. Start with a simpler mode like Compound with sidemenu minimised. All your comments suggest that you do not understand the concept of hub windows, so you should start with Compound which will give you a more familiar layout without sidemenu hubs.

(2024-03-01, 12:49)Bindou Wrote:
  • Also, I don't know if this only happens to me, but the dot in the sidebar, indicating the current vertical category, doesn't appear when we're on the Home page. Which creates a form of confusion.
Works fine for me. Again, probably a misunderstanding about hub windows vs widget categories. Start with a simpler mode.

(2024-03-01, 12:49)Bindou Wrote:
  • Finally, it is true that if there was a solution to avoid having to click to move from one category to another from the side pane, it would be a significant plus in terms of ergonomy. However, I understood that it was difficult to implement or that it was not "logical" depending on how you thought about how this Skin would work.
Again misunderstanding about hub windows vs widget group. If you want a simplified setup with widget categories attached directly to sidemenu items then use Classic mode. That might help you understand this difference better.

I have two questions:

1) The "in progress" widget is not working. I would like to display in a widget the list of movies and episodes that I have only partially watched.

2) Additionally, the "recently watched" widget only shows movies and episodes that I have watched completely and not just those that have been partially watched.
I noticed that in the "Metadata Editor" the "date and time last played" field is not being written.
Is there a way to solve this issue without resorting to syncing with Trakt?

Thank you

For (1) this is working correctly for me.

Default library widget for in-progress are simply smart playlists. You can see for e.g. episodes playlist rules here:
https://github.com/jurialmunkey/skin.arc...isodes.xsp

Note that if you are using .strm to fill out the library they won't work as .strm don't record progress (.strm is a playlist so it can't have a resume point). Also if you are using something like JellyFin/Emby/Plex to fill the library that's also very much likely.

Syncing with Trakt won't do anything as Kodi records resume points internally based upon playback

For (2) also working correctly for me. My guess is same reason as (1).

It would be great if the trailers launched automatically from the information page after a few seconds and, above all, stopped automatically when you left the information page!

PS: I just saw that you improved the film information page by adding cover and landscape. I think it's great, it's exactly what's missing. Thanks!

Please make feature requests on github. If it isn't a simple bug that I can quickly fix then it will very soon get lost in the thread and I will forget about it. Github requests are much easier for me to keep track of and work towards.

I am doing it as I have done until now, below I click on add list, categories, videos, add list and there it always added 3 items but now none, do you know what could be happening to me? Is there a maximum number of items allowed per category and submenu? Thank you so much

There's not really a limit (assuming you aren't trying to add 100 items or something crazy -- then you'll hit the unique ID ceiling). I'll see if I can recreate but it seems to be working fine for me.

Ah you're right. I've mucked something up there. It *was* working before (I know because I specifically tested for it!) but I must've messed up something with the landscape art variable in a recent change. I'll see if I can fix for next update.

EDIT: Actually it is working for me. Make sure that you press "OK" button from the side once changing the settings as otherwise it doesn't stick (that's what just caught me out before and why I thought it wasn't working).

Wow thank you jurial! Always giving out the clutch pro tips!!

I appreciate the quick tutorial and I'll be able to change it if need be, although it sounds like you'll implement that feature in an upcoming update.

I might wait until you do that so it can be added cleanly through your widget settings. However, if I'm feeling up to it tonight I just might try out your step by step and add it early through my Nvidia Shield file manager 😎

@jurialmunkey i quite liked that the movie logo showed when pausing playback.

That seems to have disappeared of late (or at least I don't know how to get it back).

Is there any way to get that back

Edit: Nevermind. Got it back. Updated probably changed my settings but the option is still there

I believe the setting is correct and is working if I switch to Estuary, but not in Fuse for some reason. 

I even noticed when playing with nodes in widget editor it displays a mask instead of a thumb on the side when the setting is off.  However, once I get back to viewing it's not masked anymore.

I'll play around with it some more to see if I can nail it down since it's working on your end.  Thanks jurialmunkey

That's weird. The mask image is what I check for in the variable, so it should show landscape or fanart if icon = masked image. Long shot, but double check that you haven't somehow ended up with the episode thumb in the episode landscape art (info > click slideshow)

Also when it happened to me I assumed it was because I didn't hit OK to save the setting, but the other thing I did in-between was refresh an item in my tvshow library (info > images > refresh) -- I'd be surprised if it is simply that but worth a try to see.

Definitely working for me now though. I tested in library with both .strm and local files, and in plugins, and it all worked properly to hide the spoiler thumbs when toggling the setting. I even tested with that same show.

I've just found out that for Omega, the syntax for the path has changed to pvr://channels/tv/<groupname>@<clientid>. The PR at https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/23016 refers. I've tested using this syntax and it worked fine. Hope this helps.

After updating to v0.4.82, the options menu side items is gone. Is there an option to enable/disable that? I can't find it.

Noticed that also, you need to press to the left to bring it up when the power menu is displayed.
