Is this still supported?  It's *exactly* what I was looking for, however, I can't seem to use any of the links on the skins themselves.  For example, I cannot click the wrench icon on the weather to set my location.  I can't click the arrows on the calendar to change months forward and backwards.  Any assistance is appreciated!

I like your works, Poiru. Actually I've been using Vista Rainbar from your work since 4.6.
I wonder if we can click on the Calendar small arrows to see previous or next month calendar.
Thank you Poiru. Love your works.

Hi "poiru",
your theme "vista rainbar" works very well, but cannot be installed as announced on your website, because a *.rmskin file is missing in your download. Otherwise it's easy to copy the files manually as requested to the directories of rainmeter
as I did. I created a website in German for german customers:
[link]
with descriptions about installation and configuring the gadgets. If you like this, I could create an English website like this for you, or you can use a link to a site on my server.

Greetings from Berlin, Germany

Hi, this is due to Internet Explorer changing the file extension of the downloaded file from .zip to .rmskin. Change it back to .rmskin and double click to install :)

Sorry for late reply!

I tried the download link with firefox - the file extension is .rmskin, and can be installed by rainstaller as you claimed!

can i port it to windows 7 style and update the images? I will give you full credit.

Maybe 7meter is a good name.

Sure you can, but what is Windows 7 style? IIRC, these should match Windows 7 perfectly.

first of all, the gadget gallery window is different, as the colors and window borders are different. I will also change the (c) 2006 to (c) 2009, as that was when windows 7 was released. Also, there is no sidebar in windows 7. i will make a custom gadget gallery button that is invisible until rolled over or clicked.

there are a bunch of minor differences, but the main work is replacing the images and adding a custom skin and killing the sidebar.

You can have the "look & feel" like in Windows 7: Click the "+" sign of the sidebar and select "Close Skin" and the sidebar will vanish. The selected gadgets will remain on your window, and you can move them on your desktop.

Äsken tuli väärät ohjeet, älä lue niitä. Tässä siis oikein:

Sen kielen vaihtaminen on mahdollista, vaikkakin hieman työlästä. Otetaan esimerkiksi vaikka se kalenteri.

- Klikkaa oikealla napilla kalenterin päältä -> Edit skin..
- Etsi sieltä [MeasureMonth] (tiedoston loppupäässä, helpoiten löytyy CTRL + F avulla)
- Lisää sen Format rivin alle seuraava:
Substitute="January":"Tammikuu","February":"Helmikuu"
jne.

Sitten vaan tallennat ja refreshaat Rainmeterin :)

This is cool but I have a problem with the Weather gadget...

It just shows a empty space...

I'm sure I'm using the right zip code and all the info it needs.

Please help ^^

Don't worry, I already fixed it.

Instead of using the zip code from my country, I just needed the zip code from a certain weather site (I forgot it's name :P) and it worked ;)

Very very nice skin, i tried alot of skins and this is the one which satisfied me most :)
I only have 2 problems: the RSS feeds, not all the feeds i use are working :\
and i'd really like a "transparent" (glass style) skin for the network, since i used that on multi-meter and power skins :)
Great job, keep it on :P

Can you post the feed URL's? And I'll look into making a glass variant for next release.
