    Hi everyone I am looking for a Today theme for my 8330 that has my Calender events (upcoming 4 events), Tasks, and messages on it. All I have been able to find is Messages, Calender, Call Log, and Applications. Does such a theme exist? Anyone know where I can buy/download it?

    Thanks

    I have been on the hunt for one, and I have been told, it can't be done. I want the same as you. I have posted to see if anyone could make me one, and no one has contacted me. I gave up.

    But if you find one some how, let me know.

    Good luck

    Like this? If so I can make this in the default Plazmic theme quickly or you can have this one in my Bamboo theme.



    As a note, the task line doesn't have the ability to set a number of tasks to show.

    I know this is off topic, but I was viewing your website. Are you able to make custom themes and choose what you see on the Today screen?

    Putting it together now, but had a few questions:

    1. Does the sequence look ok (Calendar, Task, Messages)
    2. Do you want 3xCalendar and 3x Messages? Or the 4x2 like the demo?

    4x2 like the demo is great.

    Not trying to hijack, but could you make a theme like that with the messages on top, then calendar, then tasks? I really think that would look great. Please pm me if you get a chance. Thanks!

    Yes, it's possible to put the icon on the Today screen, but it will not show your tasks in the same manner as the calander and messages. You will only have the icon.

    I OTA downloaded the theme, thanks.

    Only issue is I can only see 2 appointments. Is there a setting I need to change?

    I re booted my hand set and also did a battery pull. Thursday is the next day I have a full day, but the first 2 appt are the only thing that shows.

    Not sure, in the example it shows 4 items. Let me load this on my BB and test.

    Well loaded it on mine and did the same thing. Been reading online that this is a known issue, but haven't seen a work around. If you find one, let me know.

    I did a test and removed the messages and task items and left only the calendar, then changed the calendar to show 6 items. Same result, only shows two items. Back to the drawing board.

    Want me to reconfigure the theme to only have two calendar slots and put the 6 dock icons at bottom? If so, which 6 icons?

    Well that sucks.

    No thanks I was wanting 4 slots on the calendar.

    Thanks for the try

    I may be wrong but I was under the impression that the calendar will preview more than 2 events only on OS 4.5 and up, unless you guys already have your BB upgraded and still does not work.

    You are correct with this assumption. Only phones running OS 4.5 will show more than 2 entries in the today screen/section of a custom theme. Devices running 4.3 or 4.2 will only show the standard 2 entries.

    Could you make it so that:

    1. Messages are on top displaying the 2 most recent messages at a time
    2. Calendar is next displaying the next 2 appointments
    3. Tasks on the bottom displaying 1 or 2 upcoming tasks. Thanks!

    Most likely because it wasn't designed as a Today application. Messages, SMS/MMS, Calander and Phone Log are all items that were designed for the original Today themes, and are the only ones (that I know of) that will display subtexts when set in a Today style icon.

    And yes, you need 4.5 to display 3+ subtexts on the home screen.
