    My first attempt .. what do ya think?

    So I just started learning how to make these when I got home from work today. I know it's rough and REALLY basic but I'd like your opinions on it. What can I do to make it better or what should I know for future projects?

    Great Job. When you add the "missed calls" plugin, how do you link it to the different picture?

    haha i love it...great work...
    you need to add this code to get the missed calls screen to add an image

    <!--standard missed calls plugin-->
    <plugin clsid="{0BA8ABB8-1F1D-417f-88C6-DA8530E2E7A6}" name="missedcalls" height="220">
    <background b-border-width="0" bgimage="\Application Data\Home\XXXX.jpg" valign="top">
    <format state="selected" bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT"/>
    </background>
    <label halign="center" bgcolor="#999999" fgcolor="#000000" font-weight="bold" y="60" w="320" h="220" font-size="32">
    <format state="nocall" visible="false"/>
    <text lang="0x0409">Missed calls: <calls/></text>
    </label>
    </plugin>

    hope this helps!

    Thanks Scott. I actually used the one you made me as my guide and just started moving stuff around, seeing what changed what, etc.

    So as I learned while heading in to work this morning, the color scheme is HORRIBLE because you can't see it when you're in the sun. And I live in Arizona so I'm never not in the sun. (I swear, it sneaks into any room of any building I'm in ... the sun out here is like a stalker or a bad ex-girlfriend).

    So ... I think I'm going to start from scratch and try another one. Later. Not now. Cause, ya know, I'm at work.

    Missed Calls with different screen

    I've been trying to get this to work with a new Homescreen I'm making. I've started making it usiung pictures of the model "Buffy the Body" and I'm doing one of "Vida". But everytime I load them into my Q, it renames the pictures and the homescreens dont show up anywhere. Since I'm using more that one picture, i even tried to put them in folders to see if that helped and it still didn work. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    One is the images that will be on the homescreen and the other is the missed calls picture. The pictures names are as follows:

    Buffymain.home.xml
    Buffymissedcalls.home.xml

    When I load them into the Q, it renames them as follows:
    Buffy(1)home.jpg
    Buffy(2)home.jpg
