At the moment I am making the sheets through microsoft publisher. I am only doing this as I was just mucking around to start off with. I have only made about 10 this way just to see what happens.
I have tried to download thumbgen in the last few days and it won’t start up - I suppose that is another issue. I will get on the thumbgen forum regarding that one soon.
With the cache the way it is at the moment, I don’t have any thumbnail files next to the movie files within the folders that I am experimenting with. Within the movie folders are the movie files only. Once the SMP has cached the thumbs, I move the thumb files to my computer hard drive. The first screen shot is still working.
I only have a very general understanding of the methods that are talked about on the forums eg Cover trickle. I know that I should probably look these up and familiarise myself with them more but I am just experimenting at the moment with my very limited knowledge and experience. Maybe I am using the cover trickle method and not even realising???
I suppose you could say that I am trying to learn this the hard way. I thought if I do it this way I will not get lazy and just upload someone else’s theme and be done with it. I actually want to contribute something. Maybe one day I will be able to offer other people advice about this product.
I am trying not to take up too much of yours, or anybody else’s time for that matter, asking a thousand questions ( or dribbling on in posts like I feel that I have been). However, I am very grateful for any help offered.
