Theme ID number

Unread postby Goodydino » Fri, 19 Jan 2018, 18:52

I was advised to change the ID number for a theme I am trying to port to Pale Moon. Just how is that done? Would changing the first 2 digits be enough, or is there a specific formula that gets used?

Remember there are hard restrictions on what your ID can be.. It can be a valid GUID or UUID enclosed in curly brackets or a something@something which can include a-z A-Z 0-9 dash underscore and dot.

If you are wondering if the ID or any other issues with your forks could be wrong try our Validator @ http://addons.palemoon.org/special/validate/ which can catch most common pitfalls.

An extension's or theme's ID number is a unique identifier and is entered in the add-on's install.rdf file. The GUID form of ID should be randomly generated. You can get a list of random GUID's from the Online GUID Generator website,or elsewhere online. GUID's are enclosed in curly braces. Or you can use the form of ID with the "at" symbol (no braces, which you can almost totally make up, as long as it's unique and does not contain improper characters).

So I could just use something@palemoon.org, and that would be fine? That sounds easiest. Thanks.

No, you can't, because *@palemoon.org is reserved for Pale Moon itself, just use your name or something like that.

So I can just make up something like "something@whatever.fyb" and that is fine?
