|How do I upload the custom interface I made?|
Here are the most common steps to take when sending us your custom interface:
Remember to start a new thread in the appropriate forum in the "Interface Downloads Discussion " section (and then link to the thread in the file description of your interface) so members can discuss your interface!
Your submission will be deleted ** if ** :
|Why can't I upload .exe files?|
|We are sorry, but we do not typically allow .exe files in uploads.
As we are sure you are aware, so many folks are not computer savvy enough to tell whether an .exe is safe or not and would immediately think "it's got an .exe, it'll have a virus/keylogger/etc" and delete it. So for the peace of mind of our users, we just make it a policy to not typically allow .exe files.
That being said, there are a few exceptions to this rule:
|How do I update my custom interface in your database?|
If you already have an interface in our downloads database and wish to update the zipfile, jpg/gif or description you can click on the link named “List/Edit My Interfaces” on the main page of www.wowinterface.com in the login block (after you have logged in) on the top right.
Once you click the link you will see a list of interfaces you have in our downloads database and the far right column will be “Author options” and a [ edit ] link for each interface you have.
When you click on the edit link you will be brought to a screen where you can update your files or the description. This works similar to the upload screen when you first submitted your files.
If you are updating the description, title, options or screenshots of your interface, it will update immediately.
If you choose to update your zip file your interface will be put back in the queue for a moderator/admin to approve again. This is done for security reasons as the file moderators check all files before they are approved. So after you update your files they will not be available to anyone until a moderator/admin approves them.
|Why do my uploads keep getting denied/deleted?|
|The five most common errors are:
a) You included executables in it. We don't allow executables in regular mods or compilations on the site;
b) You have extra compressed folders within your main compressed folders. Everything needs to be in their own uncompressed folder within the main folder.
c) Having wowmatrix files in it. We don't allow anything having to do with wowmatrix on our site;
(The next two are specific to compilations)
d) You didn't give proper credit to the authors whose actual work you are using. You need to either list the mods used in your description or take a screenshot of your addon folder and include it with your other screenshots; or
e) You didn't scrub your WTF of your personal information. That's a good way to get your account stolen. Make sure that if you include the WTF, you change your personal information to generic terms;
Make sure none of those are a problem with your upload.
