    Very useful indeed for people who struggle knowing how to create their own mods looking for a guide to try and learn, which includes myself. Very good!

    I have to ask.... What editor are you using?

    Would sure save me a world of time and effort if my editor auto filled / auto completed a few keys here and there, as yours does.

    Unfortn. I would normally gladly recommend TextMate by MacroMates but they have dropped the ball dramatically and have pathetically let their customers down by promising updates and never showing any evidence it's in the works. But yeah, TextMate. It has bundles for a lot of stuff, html/css/php/etc, and if in one thing shows different than in another, making it an awesome text editor. It's not a PHP IDE, but it's great for simplified screencasts and doesn't add 500 little windows on a screen.

    Ok, under updates all the walkthroughs are written out, the videos are all uploaded now to youtube.
    They're just still being processed. If they don't load yet just check it out again in a few minutes.

    [edit: only 13 is being processed, the rest works]

    Absolutely agree. I am however still waiting for the latest refresh of iMac's... before I take the plunge.

    Rather not go off topic, but since Apple products are freaking amazing according to myself, and this is my own release thread, .. why not :

    Make sure your custom template at the top has: <xen:require css="igFooter_template.css" />

    In this thread you also asked how to get your custom template to show at the most bottom part of the hook footer.
    I've made an extra screencast video (14) to demonstrate how to customize my add-on to achieve that.

    (youtube might still be processing this video)

    Exactly what I needed! Thank you so much for taking the time to thoroughly and clearly explain the add-on process. You did a wonderful job and I really appreciate you taking time to create this additional video. :)

    Floris, at the start you say click "List Add-ons" and from there click "Create Add-on". I have no add-ons installed at all, and the option doesn't show-up to "Create Add-on", only "Install Add-on". Curious if you MUST HAVE at least one mod already installed to see that "Create Add-on" option show up?
