For cPanel & WHM 11.46
(Home >> Themes >> Universal Theme Manager)
This set of features allows you to manage four sets of themes.
A cPanel & WHM theme is the skeletal frame on which the system places the style, or “skin.” The theme contains many elements such as HTML and CSS. We recommend that you use the x theme for WHM, the x3 or paper_lantern themes for cPanel, and the x3mail theme for Webmail.
To access these themes, click the Manage Themes link that corresponds to the theme that you wish to edit.
- cPanel — The theme that appears in the cPanel interface. cPanel users who maintain websites on your server will see this theme.
- The most current themes that cPanel supports are x3 and paper_lantern.
- Login — The theme that appears on the cPanel login interface.
- Webmail — The theme for webmail clients that ship with cPanel.
- WHM — The theme that appears in the WHM interface. You, the web host, and your resellers will see this theme.
