    How are you and others stacking widgets on top of Simi clock? When I resize the simi widget with LP, I obviously can't drag anything else (like BW Weather) on top of it like you did here.

    Just curious, what app or widget is that you use for your calendar or agenda? Is it for rooted or non-rooted phones?

    In this screen, I set up simi clock (4x1) on the top of the screen, then added beautiful widgets right underneath it (dragged it down once so I can click on it to get the forecast.. Then drag simi clock down over BW. Battstatt is 1x1 so that fits next to simi clock since my columns is set to 5.

    Hope that helps.

    You just need to use Desktop Visualiser and place a 'Transparent' image (as your image file) over the relevant links.

    Thanks mykela25 for the animated gif idea :) Works perfectly for this type of theme.
    Excuse the quality loss though.
    Like you're baby too!

    I post my screenshots here regularly using imageshack. Even though I resize them they still post much smaller than I would like. What step am I missing? Thanks

    Thanks, that's pretty much what I figured. Funny too, because someone just posted a thread with a transparent icon image. Talk about nice timing :p (although for some reason it's showing up as a white square, not transparent, so not sure what's going on there).

    Yeah, sorry about the re-post, when I saw the first one get cut to the previous page, and saw that you had made a couple of posts since then, I figured it probably got missed :D

    Thanks again, and keep up the incredible work, very impressive stuff!! Your eye for aesthetics is dead on IMO!!

    Cheers

    I've attached another one for you, but probably nothing wrong with your one.
    For eg the transparent image shows up as a white block when selecting it to attach to this post, but if you open the PNG file in eg Photoshop you will see it is transparent. From Desktop vIsualiser it should show up as solid black, but when you add it to your screen it will be transparent.
    Thanks for your comments. Appreciated.

    When you upload to imageshack use the resize option for forums of 640x480 (or if you prefer choose the option 'Do not Resize'.)

    Once uploaded, click on your image to test how it uploaded, and select the code from the box on the right hand side of your image.as shown below.
    Copy and paste that text directly into the forum post.

    Niteowl that's a really neat idea. From what I can tell, you actually have 8 widgets placed around the centre circle right? One for each image, and one for the 4 words around the circle.

    Trying to mod things myself.
    Messaging widget is completely f'ed up, it's a mod of the one that comes with launcherpro plus. Few buttons have to be moved around.

    That is how I've been doing it. Maybe because I am only using the free version of Imageshack it only lets me imbed the smaller size? Anyway, thanks for the help.

    Are you sure you're using the specific code I highlighted.
    I'm also using Free version, so rest assured that's not the issue.

    Yes that's right.
    The widgets are very easy to place and the one's for 'browser' 'whatsapp' etc are placed just outside the circle.
    If you want I can zip up the 'templates' of the transparent images that go inside the circle.
    And on top of this some of the images when clicked will display a subset of shortcuts using Folder Organiser eg when I click on Notes image it displays 3 separate icons.
    Cheers

    It's Circle Battery Widget form Market, with ample customisation etc. Very good.
    The only thing it may lack is there is no 'Charging' notification, but no big deal.
    Waiting for your comment, because I know if I don't hear from you, then I've missed the mark!!! :D

    Something else I have discovered is 'File Manager' to replace Astro. It is awesome.

    I asked this once before, but I'm not sure if anyone seen it? I was curious if anyone knows what angenda/calendar widget/app that they used below:
    I really like how it is set up and what not. Thanks in advance!
