Title: Rockbox Issue - Would Like help - WPS not showing up?
Post by: skate6566 on September 03, 2008, 11:52:35 AM
So I've been trying to install themes to rockbox.

And I went in to play  some songs and didn't get the theme's wps, but rather the WPS as pictured below.

I'd really like some help in making it... not... do what is happening.

Which theme is that, and where did you download it from? Some of the themes in the WPS gallery are still using the old WPS syntax.

If you want a working theme, look for anything that has had an update after July 3rd (IIRC). Those themes should work with current builds.

This means that the theme has been loaded but there's an error in the WPS code, so it's reverting to the default system WPS (displayed over the background image of the theme).  There's a sticky in this forum that indicates one of the major changes that happened recently (the progress bar code).  Other things to watch for are %m tags, which are no longer supported.  For a current listing of the WPS syntax you can visit the CustomWPS page in the wiki.

The changes were included in SVN on 6/23, I believe.  Themes that say they were updated more recently should work.

If you do make improvements then you could help out by uploading an update to the theme.  (I am assuming that this theme is not from the graveyard.)
