    Ok straight to the point

    Basically i cant use my toggle widget skins, they are in the correct folder
    (sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/tskins)
    My weather, super clock and home skins all work
    When i want to change the skin I cant see anything

    Any solutions?
    Is anyone having the same problem?

    Your toggle skins are in the correct folder. However, make sure of the following:
    (using the Aqua skin as an example)
    1. That each toggle skin is in its own folder inside the sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/tskins
    2. That each toggle skin folder includes .jpg and .txt files named exactly as the parent folder (eg. Aqua.jpg and Aqua.txt files in the sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/tskins/Aqua folder). Each toggle skin folder should also contain various named .png files.

    The Auqa.jpg file is a thumbnail of the skin and the Aqua.txt file is a description of the skin. I've attached a .zip file of one of my custom toggle skins as an example.

    If all of this is done correctly, try re-downloading the skins again and see if that resolves the issue.

    Hope this was some help.

    Thnx ardchoille, it works now

    The text document was labelled "skins" instead of the name of my toggle skin eg "WhepeshBrue"
    Nice Sense toggle skin looks great

    Many thanks

    Yeah, I figured something was wrong with a filename. Glad that worked for you :)

    By the way, if you would like to make your own skins the BW developers have released a skin dev kit. This dev kit makes it easy to create you own BW skins.
