ADD NEW CATEGORY TO MAIN MENU

Once you have downloaded the new Prozone 5.0 config you’ll notice that the navigation and how add-ons are assigned are a little different.

One of the great things about 5.0 is yet another level of customisation where by you can now easily create new main categories on your navigation containing a grouped selection of add-ons.

For example, if you wanted to create a category called FITNESS where once you click on the FITNESS tab it takes you to a group of add-ons which you have assigned to the FITNESS category. Same goes for if you wanted to create a new category called CARTOONS like I have done in this guide, then you will be able to assign add-on related to CARTOONS to this category.

Here’s how to do it…

STEP 1. FROM THE MAIN MENU ON YOUR PROMETHEUS HIT THE DOWN ARROW TO BRING UP THE SMART MENU AND LOOK FOR VIDEO ADD-ONSAND CLICK ENTER.

STEP 2. SCROLL DOWN TO CATEGORIES AND CLICK THE C BUTTON TO BRING UP THE CONTEXT MENU.

STEP 3. CLICK ENTER ON ADD-ON SETTINGS.

STEP 4. THIS WILL TAKE YOU TO A PAGE WHERE YOU CAN CREATE NEW CATEGORIES, THERE ARE 20 AVAILABLE SLOTS FOR VIDEO CATEGORIES. THERE IS ALSO AN OPTION HERE FOR AUDIO CATEGORIES AND IMAGE CATEGORIES. FOR THE SAKE OF THIS GUIDE WE’RE ONLY FOCUSING ONVIDEO CATEGORIES SO ON THE RIGHT OF THE SCREEN YOU SHOULD SEE THE 5 CATEGORIES WHICH ARE SET BY DEFAULT IN THE NEW 5..0 CONFIG. SCROLL DOWN TO A NEW SLOT AND CLICK ENTER.

STEP 5. ENTER A NAME FOR YOUR NEW CATEGORY. IN THIS CASE I AM CREATING A CATEGORY FOR CARTOONS SO I HAVE CREATIVELY NAMED THE CATEGORY CARTOONS. CLICK DONE ONCE COMPLETE AND THEN MAKE SURE TO CLICK OK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE TO SAVE THE NEW CHANGES.

STEP 6. – YOU CAN NOW PRESS ESCAPE TO RETURN TO THE VIDEO ADD-ONSPAGE. NOW WE HAVE CREATED A CATEGORY WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO ASSIGN AN ADD-ON TO THE NEW CATEGORY SO, ONCE AGAIN SCROLL TOCATEGORIES IN VIDEO-ADD-ONS AND BUT THIS TIME ONE IN THERE YOU WILL NEED TO CLICK ON ALL ADD-ONS.

STEP 7. SCROLL THROUGH THE LIST OF INSTALLED ADD-ONS TILL YOU FIND THE ONE YOU WANT TO ADD TO THE NEW CATEGORY AND CLICK THE CBUTTON ON THE ADD-ON TO BRING UP THE CONTEXT MENU. THE CLICK ONADD TO CATEGORY AND THEN YOU SHOULD SEE THE LIST OF AVAILABLE CATEGORIES INCLUDING YOUR NEWLY CREATED ONE. SO SCROLL TO THE NEW CATEGORY, IN THIS CARE MINE WAS CARTOONS AND CLICK ENTER TO ASSIGN THE ADD-ON. ONCE YOU PRESS ENTER, IT SHOULD TAKE YOU BACK TO THE VIDEO ADD-ON PAGE.

STEP 8. TO DOUBLE CHECK THAT YOUR ADD-ON HAS BEEN ASSIGNED YOU CAN GO TO CATEGORIES AGAIN AND THEN YOU SHOULD SEE THE NEW CATEGORY WITH A 1 NEXT TO IT, OPEN THAT UP AND YOUR ADD-ON SHOULD BE IN THERE.

So, to recap, we have have created a new category and assigned an add-on to it. We now need to create a shortcut to the category on the main navigation so that it works the same ways as movies, live tv, tv shows etc..

So…

STEP 9. FROM THE MAIN MENU, CLICK THE DOWN ARROW TO SHOW THE SMART MENU AND NAVIGATE TO CUSTOMISE MAIN MENU AND CLICK ENTER.

STEP 10- SCROLL TO AN EMPTY SLOT ON THE LEFT AND CLICK ENTER. CLICK ON REPLACE THIS MENU WITH AND THEN SCROLL TO CHOOSE VIDEO NODEAND THEN VIDEO ADD-ONS

STEP 11- SCROLL DOWN TO CATEGORIES AND CLICK ENTER

STEP 12- SCROLL TO THE NEWLY CREATED CATEGORY AND CLICK ENTER TO OPEN IT UP.

STEP 13- CLICK ON OK AT THE BOTTOM TO SAVE THIS SHORTCUT.

STEP 14- NOW YOU NEED TO CLICK IN TO THE MIDDLE SECTION AND THENRENAME. GIVE YOUR CATEGORY A NAME TO SHOW ON THE NAVIGATION BAR. THIS CAN BE DIFFERENT TO THE ONE YOU GAVE IT EARLIER. HOWEVER IN THIS CASE I HAVE JUST CALLED IT CARTOONS.

STEP 15- CLICK ESC TO RETURN TO THE MAIN MENU. SCROLL ACROSS TILL YOU SEE YOUR NEW CATEGORY AND CLICK ENTER WHERE YOU SHOULD SEE THE ADD-ON YOU PLACED IN THERE

That’s it!

To add more add-ons to the new category, either repeat steps 5 and 6 above or follow this simple to follow guide below.
