Simply Nova by Nova-7-Sev-dd Simply Nova by Nova-7-Sev-dd
SimplyNova is an old skin of mine (my first as a matter of fact). After being voted Skin of the Month on the Rainmeter group it has gained nearly 500,000 downloads through out all the sites it's currently on and is used in many different ways by Rainmeter users, admins and teachers.

I have gone through all the code and corrected mistakes (always an ongoing process though), got rid of unneeded code, added comments through all files and much more. There are a few changes from the original - better link icons (which as of yet still need some work to allow for icons that you'll actually want/need as users.

I love seeing what people do with these skins - so if you use it please shoot me a message with a link. I don't care what you do with it - just like to see the different uses :)

All updates and pertinent information about this skin are now located in one of my journal entries due to a long list of items. Get it here: SimplyNova UPDATES Journal

great skin! I love this one!

but I have some questions...

the font size you used in the weather skin looks not so clear on my computer

where can I change it?

and the usb skin is not working right

how can I fix it?

That's very weird (on the usb drive one), I'll have to look into that one honestly. 

As for the font size - it'll be a variable. Just right click on the meter and scroll down just a bit to the variables section and you'll see font size (as well as many other items) and you can change it there.
Using my user and pass from gmail just displays the first and third column, not how many emails I have.  Has this problem been solved yet?  Thanks man

It's only been an issue with a few people. I'm not sure what's causing it (only answer I've gotten from other rainmeter dev's is that it's most likely some sort of security setting through Gmail). I'm sure you're refreshing the skin after you make the changes. I'll be sure to update you if I get any kind of thing figured out.

For some reason the email is not working. I put in the right stuff but i doesnt say anything, help please

Message me on my Facebook page and include the code portion of your variables for the gmail settings. Just replace letters and numbers with xX's so I don't see your password. 

Also, this ONLY works with Gmail - just want to make sure that's what you're using.

Sorry im noob in this rainmeter thingy. Can you please tell me how to change the location for Weather bar.
Nova-7-Sev-dd Feb 21, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
If you right click on the weather meter > select edit skin > and scroll down to the variables (near the top kinda) you'll see instructions and a site to go to get your location code. Just replace the one that's there with yours :)
Seems there's a glitch, all I get is a lot of NA and question marks.
Anything wrong in the code?
