WinCustomize 2010 Beta Feedback Forum [Read Before Posting!]

Monday, January 4, 2010 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize 2011 Feedback

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the WC 2010 Beta.  We are excited to be getting near the release of the new WinCustomize, but we still have many things to be worked out, and your help in finding issues and other feedback will be appreciated.  Remember, this is a beta and problems can be expected.

You can access the beta site at:

This forum will serve as the place to give your feedback whether it's a site issue, or general feedback about the site.  To make this organized and efficient, there are a few guidelines to follow in this area.

Tag posts with the titles.  Example: [Bug] Page Not Working

[Bug] Use this if you find a site bug.

[Feature] Obviously, if you want to give feedback on a specific feature.

[Request] If you are requesting something.

[Question] If you have a general question not pertaining to other tags.

If your post is something other than those examples, just tag the post appropriately so we can view them with some type of order.

The forums are not part of this beta, with the possible exception of a new theme.  Feedback for the forums doesn't need to be posted here.  If you run across a forum issue, please use the existing thread here.

Thanks for your help!

I believe these are icon links to specific galleries, but as you see....they don't show well, or even all of them.

They are where they are supposed to be if you don't use the 'Dark Theme'. I think it's a bug in that theme.

I actually took the dark off and came up with the same thing. Will try again though. I am having some serious senior moments today

Tried it again, and you were right, it is the dark version that is doing. Thanks, luv

I think it was mentioned before somewhere but anyway ... Please fix the forums so it will "remember" the selection of dark or light style.

Thanks for the dark option anyway, it's really cool!

[Request] Please update the front page sometimes, there's the same featured skin for about a month as far as I remember (with all the respect to this cool skin), it doesn't match with the featured skin on the old site.

I really love the new WinCustomize 2010. So far I haven't ran into any problems.

On the main page if you have switched to the Dark theme in Forums, there are no nav arrows next to "page 1 of 128" etc. As well as the icons for  the "All" button at top right by Login info, appear top center of page using FF 3.6.

[Request] Wallpaper Explore Filters

An explore filter for screen size/resolution would be great, at the moment it looks like I would have to go into each one to find out what sizes are offered.

Still Unable to edit comments on a Libraries page such as wallpaper or windowsblinds get a transparent popup that says an unexpected error occured while trying to process your request or something like that. It has been this way for over two eeeks that I know of most likely longer stars only until you get it right

This one of reasons why I do not use the Beta page on a regular basis, it appears you are not fixing the bugs that are reported

Fixed it this is how I did it In Internet Explorer 8 with Win 7

click on TOOLS then INTERNET OPTIONS then PROGRAMS under internet Progtams Click on SET PROGRAMS new window opens then click on

Associate a file type or protocol with a program then look for .wba then click on Change program then click on the drop down arrow for other programs then look for INTERNET EXPLORER click on it then click OK NOW my .wba open with the save option Damn I'm good for what the world may never know lol

This does work untile you double clike a WBA file,then IE keeps trying to open it and it dosn't load. Then You have to change it back to have WBlinds open the file. I can't find any other solution. DID I miss something. Is it that hard the have a save target as option somewhere???

I am currently using Firefox 3.6.4, I have not experienced as single problem with the site as it is set up now.

Reply #210 Tuesday, April 20, 2010 5:05 PM

I'll wait, to upload anything, until I can access "sales" for Master skins.

I've looked everywhere I can think of, on the new site, and can't find them. So I'm guessing that option hasn't been added yet.

Clicking on "My Site" link loads old site interface. On the My Site page, if you click on the "My Settings" link it returns this error:

Server Error in '/' Application.

The resource cannot be found.

Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

I just uploaded a rainy skin and it went ok, except that it's not showing in the main gallery, or the rainlendar gallery, or when you search me by name....but here it is so, it's in there somewhere!

Edit: it's showing now.

Let me first say thank you so far for all the feedback, your help is greatly appreciated.  With that being said, there will still be work to do on the site so please understand that everything is not done yet.

In IE8 when you right click on the download button there is no option to save link as (or any other link related options)

Reply #216 Wednesday, April 21, 2010 5:09 AM


when you view all skins sorted by "last updated" you do not see skins like Alpha_ 7_ Final which was updated yesterday. When you browse only blinds and view by "last updated" it appears correctly as the second skin.


When using the explore filter to view more than 9 skins per page can the site remember the value?

Reply #217 Wednesday, April 21, 2010 9:08 AM

       To bad it doesn't remember your settings in the libraries.  Makes you set the filter for each library and doesn't remember the setting if you leave and come back.  Thats a pain.
