Purpose

K New Stuff (or Get Hot New Stuff) is an integrated data service which allows users to share and download themes, templates, wallpapers, and more through a single click of a button in the application.

Guidelines

KNS is not able to install files that are hosted on third-party websites, it is important that every KNS button is accompanied by a button to install a resource from a local file.

The text of a KNS button should be made of these parts:

  • Icon: use get-hot-new-stuff.png
  • Instruction: "Get New"
  • Object: The type of file the user will download
  • Ellipsis: To indicate the user must provide additional input to complete the task
