    So I just got started using springjumps and they are very fascinating. I made a simple theme that looks like those "Delnoch" themes. It's a really cool tool.

    I was just thinking, what if I create a dock that resembles a Win7 taskbar, and then place an invisible springjump(clear icon) above the Windows orb and make it jump to a page that displays a "start manu"(picture of a startmenu as the wallpaper). I can then add springjumps and apps inside this start menu that will go to corresponding pages(mail, safari, apps, games, prefs, etc...).

    The only problem I am facing now is getting different images to show up on different pages of the springboard(Wallpapers). Would there be a way to have the background change, say on page 6, with an image of the windows start menu and have all of the other pages have a standard wallpaper? I have bosspaper but it doesn't seem to have an option to show different wallpapers on different pages(only has scrolling wallpaper which is what I do not want).

    That is the only big thing I have to figure out, but other than that, I can't wait to get started on this

    just name them Page0, Page1, Page2

    but what you do is:

    make a general wallpaper and name it Wallpaper.png, then make JUST the start menu and name it Page0.png and so on

    That sounds easy enough

    Where do I place these "Page0.png" etc... pictures? Just in the regular saved photos folder?

    And about making just the start menu, will it then overlay the general wallpaper?

    Put it in with the wallpaper.png, and yes, it should overlay it, as it is a specific wallpaper and not a general. I'd like to see how this comes along, it is a very good idea, and would work very well. Why not have the lockscreen as the profile select page?

    yeah so it would end up like:

    windows 7.theme
    -Bundles
    --example
    -Folders
    --example
    -Icons
    --example
    -Wallpaper.png
    -Page0.png
    -Page1.png

    and yeah they're just overlays

    Sweet, thanks

    And the lockscreen, that would be pretty sweet also. If only I could figure out how to make a Win7 type password box

    U obviously cant steal it from him but you could take a look at the Wyndows 7 lockscreen (on this forum) and see how Wyndwarrior coded it/made it
