For cPanel & WHM 11.46

(Home >> cPanel >> Branding)


This feature allows you to modify themes in order to change the look of your users’ cPanel interfaces. 


This interface only allows you to modify the x3 and x3mail themes, as well as any deprecated themes. You cannot brand the Paper Lantern theme from this interface. 



Read our Advanced Guide to Branding documentation for in-depth information for web hosts and resellers who wish to brand their users' cPanel interfaces. This guide is most suited for users who need more features than are available in cPanel's Branding Editor interface ( Home >> Preferences >> Branding Editor ).

The Branding table lists all of the themes on your server and the directory in which you can find each theme's files.

To modify a theme, click Live Editor in that theme's Editor(s) column. The system will automatically open a new browser tab and log you in to cPanel's  Branding Editor interface ( Home >> Preferences >> Branding Editor ). Use the Branding Editor interface to make all of the desired changes to your themes.

Live Editor and disallowed root or reseller logins


If you disallow root or reseller logins to cPanel user accounts, the Live Editor link will not function properly.

To enable the Live Editor link, select one of the following options for the Accounts that can access a cPanel user account setting in the System section of the Tweak Settings interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings).

  • Root, Account-Owner, and cPanel User — Select this option to allow the root user and resellers to access the cPanel account.
  • Account-Owner and cPanel User Only — Select this option to allow only the reseller to access the cPanel account.
