I am a big fan of the audio player at the bottom of the page for the beatslinger skin...I also like that there is a playe button embedded into the lists.

However, I really love the videos on the homepage for the celebrety 2 skin.

The audio pro skin has the best embedded audio play buttons and list.

How do we get a skin that has all the best parts from each?

The skins were always intended as a starting point/ showcase of features rather than an end product. There's a CLONE SKIN button in the developer tools module:

Docs: Creating your own Skin ( Clone from an Existing Skin )
https://www.jamroom.net/the-jamroom-network/documentation/skin-design-guide/839/creating-your-own-skin-clone-from-an-existing-skin

Clone one of those skins to make it your own then grab the code from the other skins and make it into your own skin.

If you'd rather have someone do it for you send us a support ticket at support at jamroom dot net with a title like "custom skin work project" or something like that and a link to this thread.

--edit--
Judging by your footer links the skin dev looks like you can handle it yourself with a few pointers. One of your footer links seems weird though, this one: https://www.imixyourmusic.com It goes to a chinese site "Fuma Heavy machinery". You might want to check that domain is setup correctly.

This is odd because that footer link is not on my website.

Correction, You mean the footer links in this profile. Thank you I just fixed them!

Yes I can manage a lot of customizations but with way to much trial and error involved.

For instance, i just put the videos from celebrity2 skin into the beatslinger2 skin, however there is a dark color over the video...Its hard to see...and I'm thinking it's a different opacity css setting...not sure exactly what it is but I am trying to find some css settings for a class called index in the section index.

The skins should not be a starting point...they should be developed into end products. So many of the Content Management Systems out there are designed so that owners can run their business and not worry about code. I've owned jamroom for so long and hope to see that someday

The thing with the jamroom skins is that their not just a theme set of colors but rather the means to allow the developer to build whatever they want.

I hear what you're saying though, cherry picking bits and pieces to build something new would be cool. Being able to use any part of any skin in any other skin would be a good addition.

To meet that request a standardized set of CSS rules would need to be implemented and enforced. That's probably doable, it would mean sacrificing a bit of flexibility so each skin would become more like the others. Thanks for the idea.
