By enlarging you picture It seems the rope is threaded in a strange way.

He way to thread this depends on the number of sheaves on the end of the track and on the traveller.

Take the whole rope off again.
Start by threading half of the rope trough the cleat on one side (Port)
Take the end of the rope on the aft side of the cleat.
Thread this end through the port upper sheave on you traveller (from aft).
Take same end to port again - if you have a sheave sitting below the cleat thread the rope for to aft through this sheave (if not there should be a place there to make the end fast).
Continue until there are no more sheaves on the end of the track and the port side of traveller. There should be be a point somewhere to make the end fast.

Repeat on starboard side.

You don't need to make this an endless system.
