6 FAQ's

I can't find the skins settings menu when running XBMC Frodo, where has it gone?

Settings menu is now accessed from the Appearance setting menu on the line just under where you change to a different skin. Most skins now access their settings menu from this location.

How can I add custom menu's to the skin's Home screen?

Navigate to the item that you want to add to the Home screen and make it a favourite via the context menu. Then head over to the skin's setting menu and select the "Custom Favourites" menu. From there select which menu heading you wish to place menu item under and select a empty favourite slot and follow the prompts.

This FAQ is a bit light on, where can I get my questions answered?

Head over to the skins forum thread and ask there, who knows it may in time become one of these FAQ's
