[resolved] Olimometer: preserve own skins after updates (5 posts)

    I've created my own skin for Olimometer on a website (styled to fit in), but after every update I have to upload my custom-skin folder and add the right values to skins.xml again.
    Is there a way to preserve these customizations?

    Hi,

    At the moment, no. But... I am working to re-do the skin implementation to work on skin name 'slug' and not the position of the skin details in the XML file. As a consequence of this change, I'll be able to import a custom skins xml file from another location not touched by the plugin as well as the factory-fitted skins meaning you won't lose them in future releases. No ETA but I'll keep you informed.

    Me again,

    Check out the 2.20 update - it will resolve your problem. However, the downside is that when you upgrade to this version of the plugin, you will lose your custom skins again - this will be for the last time though!

    I've had to rewrite the way the skins work, so now your custom skins should be placed in the following areas (which you'll need to create)
    /wp-content/uploads/olimometer/skins.xml = your new custom skins file
    /wp-content/uploads/olimometer/skins/ = folder for your new skin_slug folders
    /wp-content/uploads/olimometer/skins/<your skin_slug>/ = a folder with the name of your custom skin_slug parameter containing the png images.

    Take a look at the new FAQ because the structure of the skins.xml is slightly different.
