for smileys you must have

for smileys you must have the "smiley add" plugin fro here:
http://addons.miranda-im.org/details.php?action=viewfile&id=2455 (or the ansi version, link is in the file description)

for themes, you must have at least "modern contact list" or "contactlist nicer"
maybe from here: http://addons.miranda-im.org/details.php?action=viewfile&id=2103

but this is an relative old one, i recommend the newest miranda found here: http://www.miranda-im.org/development
there is the newest modern contact integrated.

then you can use themes and smileys

Apps on my Portable Device:
Miranda, Firefox, Sunbird, Thunderbird, 7-Zip, FileZilla, GIMP, OOo, Sodoku and VLC

What? the plugins, the themes or what?

smileyadd.dll an clist_modern must be put in "plugins"

smileypacks in "smileys" and themes in "Skins"

Miranda NG

I have installed Miranda NG portable and it has Clist Modern installed by default. I wanted to change the skin, so I downloaded some *.msf skins and put them in PortableApps\MirandaNGPortable\App\mirandang\Skins folder, each in it's own folder. I went to Options -> Skins -> Contac List and they don't show in under available skins (there is only a Default Skin). I tried pressing the Rescan button and restarting the application, but nothing shows up. I tried putting the skin files out of their folders - directly into the Skins folder, but still nothing!

What am I doing wrong?

7 year old thread

Note - this is a 7 year old thread, you should have started a new thread rather than resurrecting this one.

With that said, according to the Miranda NG wiki page for Clist Modern, you should put the skins in MirandaNGPortable\App\mirandang\Skins\Modern contact list\ .

Sorry for resuscitating an old thread - I will keep your suggestion in mind for next time.

Thanks for pointing me to the solution, I was searching Miranda IM wiki http://wiki.miranda-im.org/Customise:skins and it said to put the skins in Miranda\Skins\skinname. As the plugin for Miranda IM and Miranda NG is the same, I thought the instructions are appropriate.

Anyway, problem solved Smile

Is this really an app that PA wants to promote. The miranda forum is very poorly maintained, and information is difficult to find.
