Moodtheme won't load

Alright, I give up: what is wrong NOW?

Failed!

This command takes exactly 5 arguments. Consult the reference.

moodtheme_setpic mood_id 101561 21 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v75/gamiila/Who/jubilant.jpg 100 60


Failed!

I just can't seem to upload a new moodtheme. Neither the gorgeous Lost-one that meivocis made, nor this Dr. Who-one by _kali_...either it tells me I don't own the theme, or to 'Consult the reference'...but then it doesn't say where I can find the bloody reference, does it? And the FAQ is bugger-all use...

Anyone have any clue as to what I should do?


ETA: YAY! Result! Thanks to meivocis's helpful suggestion, I have now finally managed to upload another moodtheme! Tomorrow, Lost...

ETA2: How stupid am I? mood_id is not a valid command! Tshhh...

My only guess is that you're not hosting the pics youreself. Are you?

Photobucket! It's what everyone uses to host their pics. It's where the turorial says to host your pics (oh, and the originals are on my home computer). It's where my previous, working moodtheme is.

So I don't get it. BTW, this one only gives me the error message listed above. Charlie's tells me I don't own the theme.

I haven't a clue then (I haven't managed to load one myself. But also I haven't found a theme worthy of me yet)

Are you using the admin console? If you are, try using the custom mood theme editor instead.....

As long as the pic's are hosted on photobucket - or another hosting service - you shouldn't have a problem.

That doesn't seem to work either...I can load up angry or working, e.g.; but the field for every other emotion that's supposed to be threaded off it is greyed out, and will automatically also change to angry or working. Is this how it's supposed to go?

Result! It just didn't like Mozilla -- could change the moods no probs as soon as I switched to IE, for some reason...Strange but true! ;-)

Looks like I'll be here a while yet.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but wisteria_ puts out these instructions whenever she creates a mood theme, and it always works for me:

(Of course, I know you haven't downloaded her theme, but I thought maybe you could pick your way through the instructions to use yours)

Thanks for your suggestion. But that is exactly how I did it before, and since it has always worked for me that way (& for most people), I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was going wrong this time.

I 've now worked around it as per [Bad username: gambit'_rogue]'s suggestion, but I hope I can soon go back to the quicker way of doing things, through the Console. ;-)
