Plazmic Custom Theme and Third Party Apps



New to creating themes and am running into a problem when using the custom homescreen and adding third party apps.  For example, I tried adding Weatherbug to the homescreen, selected it as a 3rd Party app and put in wb_monsoon as the title.  I also did the same for Facebook, calling it net_rim_bb_facebook.


Once the theme is transfered to my Storm2, both apps open when I click on their icon area, but there is no actual icon or title there, they are both blank.


What am I missing here?

Re: Plazmic Custom Theme and Third Party Apps


You should use the <module_name>.<title> as the syntax for creating a third party application.  If you don't the icons may not show up.


This information should be available in the Applications screen in Options.
