    it's not a dumb idea, it's actually one several people have suggested (including dianehelen). However, at this stage (new site, theme packaging being so new), I think something like that is a bit too much to undertake and keep it smooth.

    I can definitely see it in the future though.

    As a quick update, I worked with madolen last night to come up with a way to edit jsjsjs $and$ $css$ $files$ $in$ $a$ $safer$ $manner$ $than$ $just$ $replacing$ $whole$ $css$/$js$ $files$ ($which$ $can$ $break$ $things$ $in$ $updates$ $and$ $allows$ $for$ $malicious$ $code$).

    So far we're testing it with carrier strings, and things seem to work from what we can see. both Madolen's Steelers theme and my Batman theme have custom carrier strings which should SAFELY install/uninstall from preware and WOQI with the ipk:

    I was just thinking if the 3rd option was added to the download window, & if people did it from here forward (*and even redo the ones that are on the site already before the floodgates spill! =) it wouldnt be a huge undertaking, (though I agree the work to add another section to the page should be down the road.

    So...if I installed a theme through Quick Installer (.ipk file) as an application, do I still need to remove it before installing the 1.2 update?

    Irrespective of how you install Themes, Tweaks and Patches, you need to remove them all before a WebOS update.

    You do not need to remove homebrew applications of any kind.

    I've noticed that the .ipk file that I downloaded doesn't have all of the "features" that come with the download from the PreThemer website. I downloaded the zip file to my computer. When I tried loading it as a .zip file, the Quick Installer gives me an error message "ERROR: Invalid theme zip; theme.xml file missing."

    Help, please?

    Did you download an ipkg file, or a zip file? The two are not interchangeable.

    Did you add it on prethemer or via editing your own .jsjsjs $file$?

    I deleted the ipk file so I could try doing it the zip file method. Didn't work. Read some more, and downloaded the Preware tool to download the theme directly.

    Does Preware need to be removed for the update?

    From Prethemer, download the ipk file to install using WOQI. The zips do not include the theme.xml file as the final spec was only recently made available to me. It will be updated at some point.

    Doh, will try that and debug.

    Does Preware need to be removed for the update?
    nope, it's basically an app (well it is), and apps don't have to be removed between updates.

    Which theme was this? The same one that had the AT&T issue?

    I don't know if it's the feed or what but when I check the listing on Preware the last update time gets changed to something more recent, but version hasn't changed.

    Yes. It is possible for packages to be updated, but the author does not change the version number.

    I also wanted to get on here and say thanks for making this so easy. I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to tech jargon and installing stuff but this was so easy and I love my new theme.

    Correct - especially since authors now have the ability to manually change the version, it no longer auto-updates when a change is made.

    hey guys, a few new updates to the site (I've also updated the first post):

    *UPDATE 9/23/2009*
    • All zip version of downloaded themes now include the theme.xml file necessary to install the theme with the latest version of webos quick install.
    • I've added checks to the theme installation process (if you install via PreWare or WOQI with an ipk) that will check for a pre-existing theme and error out if there is one there. This should stop people from inadvertently installing multiple themes and ending up with a mess on their phone.
    • Made the ipks work a little closer with WOQI's format so that it can actually uninstall a theme if one already exists (NOTE: This is pending confirmation from Jason)
    • Added support for uploading a zip file generated with Jason's Theme Builder. When you add a new theme, you can go through PreThemer's easy to use wizard, or you can upload a zip file containing the theme.xml file (and images) generated with Theme Builder and all information and files will be imported. You can then set your theme online without any other fiddling.
    • Added previews to the theme uploading wizard. Now you can preview how your theme will look without setting it online and checking out the screenshots (and then having to take it back offline if something isn't right).
    • As previously mentioned, carrier text, carrier color and clock color (on the top bar) is now editable. I've used a method which I hope will be update-safe; meaning if you install the theme on 1.2, it should NOT break the apps as it doesn't actually replace the css and jsjsjs $files$, $just$ $augments$ $them$ $in$ $certain$ $locations$.
    • Added more screenshots for different areas of the phone.
