Theme developed is not visible for personalisation. Note # 452520

I did one custom theme by editing SAP standard theme and tried to apply it to our portal, but I could not see it in the portal personalisation page. Only standard SAP themes are visible in the drop-down list box. I looked at forums and SAP Notes for this problem. I did see a note no.452520 describing this problem. Also I did see another note no.483568, which is not 100% match for this problem but related. I did follow the two notes, and still I could not see our custom theme.

Every help is appreciated.

    Hi Prasad,

    I have touched this issue with EP5 and SQL server. In the SQL Server database called TTPSys you´ll find a table called P040_Color_template or something similar. You can edit this using the SQL Server Enterprise Manager. In this table you´ll see the entry for the new design template that you have been creating. Change the value of the field ´hidden´ from 1 to 0 and you´ll see your design template appearing in the portal personalisation page after a refresh of your browser.

    Good luck,

      Hi Filip Verholen:

      It did work now, after doing what you suggested. I appreciate your kind help.

      I wonder why this was not touched upon in SAP note: 452520.

      BTW, will you please let me know where you addressed this issue on EP5 and SQLServer.

      Thank you so much,
