Custom profile folders
The plugin has no user-visible functionality or options - it must be used by other plugins to have some effect. All customized paths are accessible via Customize→Folders in the main options dialog. Plugins can register storage locations for different purposes and the UI allows you to change these locations.
Normally, when not using the folders plugin, all these directories are hard coded and cannot be changed. They are all located in your Miranda profile and consequently, each profile has its own folders separated from other profiles. This can be inconvenient for users who may use multiple Miranda profiles, because sharing skins or logs between profiles is not not possible without customizable storage locations.
The visible options in the dialog depends on the number of plugins that support customizable folders. Not all plugins can use this feature, but most of the more recent ones which need to access private or public directories within your Miranda profile are supporting it.
This should be fairly straightforward. Simply select one of the locations on the list and the dialog will show you the current path. In the bottom text field, you can modify this path by simply typing a new one. The current path (displayed in the upper text field) will be updated in real time while you edit the new path in the bottom field, so you can instantly see the effect of variables.
