Difference: WpsGallery (r296 vs. r295)
The WPS (While Playing Screen) Gallery is a testament to the creativity of many of the people who have visited and participated in the Rockbox site. This is the result of their desire to make their player look the way they want it to, and to share that vision with others Please note that some of these themes require custom builds which are not supported by the Rockbox team or may be out of date and not appear as intended.
The WPS Gallery has been split into different pages for each model, which can be accessed with the following links:
The WPS Galleries have been cleared of all WPSs without licenses permitting modification. No uploads to the graveyards are accepted, but you are welcome to license and move your theme.
PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD CONTENT FOR WHICH YOU DO NOT OWN THE COPYRIGHT
This is a guide for posting your own WPS creations in the galleries, it will walk you through the steps required to get your WPS shared with the Rockbox community. Please read the ThemeGuidelines page before getting started. For an example of what the final product will look like if it's done properly, click here.
If you have not registered with the Rockbox Wiki yet, you need to do so in order to contribute to the WPS Gallery. Click here to register, and be sure to take note of the second step.
If you have registered already, and took note of the second step when you did, you're ready for step 1.
If your WPS is simply a .WPS file and does not involve any extra files (i.e. images, fonts, icons, etc.), you can skip to step 2.
A .ZIP file of your WPS and all its associated files needs to be created. Here's what you do:
If theme files, menu backgrounds, fonts, and so on are required by your WPS but aren't included they will not display properly for others and they will think you are a very bad artist.
You must include a screenshot of your WPS to display on the page so that people can see what they're downloading before expending precious time and bandwidth. Your screenshot should be displayed at the native resolution of your target device. Please do not upload oversized "screenshots". If your WPS changes the appearance of the menu as well, you might as well grab an image of that, too. There are two ways to obtain screenshots:
It is requested that you convert the images to .PNG files before uploading because .BMPs cause bigger files, are sometimes blurry, and are not supported by all browsers.
If the WPS does not need any images or files to be inculded, uploading a .ZIP file is not necessary as you can just attach the .WPS file.
Once you've uploaded all of the necessary files, return to the WPS Gallery page, scroll to the bottom, and click "Edit". If you followed step 0 correctly, the page editor window should pop up.
Now, being the kind, selfless person you are, you're going to put your WPS after everyone else's (how nice!) OR if you see the gallery in alphabetical order, keep it that way. Scroll down to the bottom of the code and hopefully the last line will be three dashes (---). This indicates a line break separating the previous WPS on the page from what will soon be yours. The basic template for a post looks like something like this:
--- ---++(Username or WPS ---++ClockedWcab Theme Collection Title here) src="%ATTACHURLPATH%/(Name of the image.PNG)" src="%ATTACHURLPATH%/ClockedWcabAqua.png" alt="ClockedWcabAqua.png" width="176" height="220" alt="(name again with extension)" width="(x)" height="(y)" /> Download: [[%ATTACHURL%/(Name [[%ATTACHURL%/ClockedWcab.zip][Zip file contains all versions of the file.ZIP or file.WPS)][(Text theme.]] This collection to be displayed)]] (Give a short description here of what you made, themes is based on the things that you like about it and how it does what it does. Keep in mind that still pictures can't show everything - so be sure Widecabbie theme. * The Colors have been changed. * A variety of colors are available. * A clock display has been added. When the sleep timer to point out alternating sublines, dancing puffs, or anything else that changes. This is also a good set the clock display will alternate between the time to and mention if your WPS is released under a specific license or requires any special patches not included in the official build.) (Then sign it by copying remaining time on the sleep timer * Themes use the same Icon set and pasting font as Widecabbie and are licensed under the signature created for you) same license. -- Main.PatWilborn - 09 Mar 2009 ---
Where everything inside circular brackets (like this) is something you need to change. Remove the brackets and the text between when entering your info but leave the rest untouched. The width and height ("x" and "y") can be found from your picture's properties or you can just look further up in the code and see what other people have put for the dimensions. If you're on the right page, they should be the same as yours. (This is generally a good trick if you run into problems. Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, right?)
Now preview the page, making sure everything's looking good and proper (no attachments lingering at the bottom of the page, no broken code uglying up the place, your screenshots shining like diamonds). Once you approve of what you see, scroll to the bottom and click "Save Changes".
You have now uploaded your WPS for the world to see. Well done! Now get cracking on your next one!
