HOW-TO customize the home menu with custom categories
#32
@nfusion2011

I just did this with the confluence skin. What you need to do is edit the home.xml file. Mine was located in C:\Program Files\XBMC\addons\skin.confluence2\720p Im running windows 7 32bit in 64bit I think its located in the c:\Profram files x86\XBMC....

what I did was did a serch (ctr+f) for

Code:
<onclick>ActivateWindow(Weather)</onclick>

what you get is

Code:
<item id="6">
<label>8</label>
     <onclick>ActivateWindow(Weather)</onclick>
     <icon>special://skin/backgrounds/weather.jpg</icon>
     <thumb>$INFO[Skin.String(Home_Custom_Back_Weather_Folder)]</thumb>
     <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoWeatherButton)</visible>
     <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(ShowWeatherFanart) | IsEmpty(Skin.String(WeatherFanartDir))</visible>
</item>

That is the code for the Weather Icon on the home page. If you look you can see the code for pictures music video and so on.

All I wanted to do was add an Anime Icon so what I did was add this code after the code for the Weather

Code:
                    <item id="4">
                        <label>Anime</label>
                        <onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyVideoLibrary,special://profile/playlists/video/Anime.xsp, return)</onclick>
                        <icon>special://skin/backgrounds/pictures.jpg</icon>
                        <thumb>$INFO[Skin.String(Home_Custom_Back_Pictures_Folder)]</thumb>
                        <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoPicturesButton)</visible>
                    </item>

as you can see Im still useing the old Pictures backgrould but all you have to do is edit the Icon code to point to background you want.
Code:
<icon>special://skin/backgrounds/pictures.jpg</icon>
