XBMC - Remove the Search Bar and More

Postby Nibbler » Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:55 am

Hi Folks. :P

I was curious, is there a way to remove the Search Bar and the Icons for the Music player in the Main Menue for The Confluence Lite Skin :?:

The Picture is not from mine, but its the same area that i want to be remove.
Hmmmmm..... any ideas guys ?

With much difficulty. :lol:

Edit the skin. Files in Q:\skin\Confluence Lite\*

Q:\ equates to the directory where XBMC is installed on your Xbox HDD.

Files to edit most likely in the 720p folder - look at Home.xml. Try commenting out lines from 1143 to 1317. There may be more to remove it all. Haven't tested it yet

Music or other main Menu Button Removal

System -> Settings -> Skin -> Home window (options) -> Hide - Music

Maybe there's something to get rid of search too. Haven't found it yet.

Hmm, mine has over 3000 lines - 3198.

Home.xml Edit.JPG

Q:\skin\Confluence Lite\skin.xml states the version of the skin as 2.11.

Code: Select all
<skin>
   <defaultresolution>720p</defaultresolution>
   <defaultresolutionwide>720p</defaultresolutionwide>
   <defaultthemename>Textures.xpr</defaultthemename>
   <version>2.11</version>
   <effectslowdown>.55</effectslowdown>
   <credits>
      <skinname>Confluence Lite</skinname>
      <name>Confluence skin by Jezz_X, Team XBMC, edited by byron and Notthesame</name>
      <name>XBOX port by xbs</name>
   </credits>
</skin>

What version of XBMC are you running? Mine's XBMC4Xbox v3.5.3-r33027.

See if there's a comment:

<!--((( Global Search and Currently Playing Media Control )))================================-->

Here's the section of the Home.xml file I commented out starting at line 1144 ( "<!--" start of comment added third line below ) to line 1318 that was blank where I close the comment by adding "-->" to the last line below.

Code: Select all

Re: XBMC - Remove the Search Bar and More

Postby Nibbler » Thu Feb 15, 2018 2:22 pm

I have XBMC 3.5.3-r33026 (with fastloading)

(put that file into the main XBMC Folder and it will stop XBMC from reloading the Program Folder, a must in my opinion) :!:

Anyway. I found the Spot.
When you edit this part out The search button and the music controls vanish from the home menue. Nice :mrgreen:

Thanks & Greetings :lovetiz:

I looked at JezzX's github archive with the same 771 line Home.xml file. I was going to say look at line 256 but you already found it. Not sure why the Confluence Lite skin's Home.xml I have is 3198 lines.

I do see that there are many sections cut out and moved to external Includes XML files.
