Re: Problems with submitting my gadget Stefan vd Tue Jun 23 03:00:20 2009


On the follow website you choose the "Desktop Gadget".
And then type you download link.

When you submit it can say that the file is to big, but it isn't.(i
mean the .gg file) But maybe you must check the Large and small
screenshots. (Max size is normal 100KB)
You can try to change the picture to a '.jpg' file type.
