Uploading with Special Characters

Thursday, May 26, 2011 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Just a note to remind people who submit skins not to use any special characters in their filenames.  If you put * or - in the filenames for either the skin or the preview, it will become corrupted.

Okay, I was wondering why doing a search for a current theme in the WC Libraries was coming up with nothing.

"alpha-numeric" means the 26 letters of the alphabet and the 10 numbers [0 to 9] only....

Yes, that should go on a list somewhere....

Something that pops up saying...

"I'm sorry.  I can't let you do that, Dave..."
