    Hi there.
    I'm going to be writing my own affiliate program that will allow my users to add links to their site and earn "referral bonuses" every time a new user clicks through their site and signs up for hosting.

    However, to make it easier for the user, I want to have code that generates the HTML links to place on their pages.


    I want to know the easiest way to add a new section and icon to my users' cpanel interface. When they click on the icon, they will be presented with a box where they can cut and paste HTML code that is specific to their domain name so that they can get referral bonuses. I already have the code in place to generate the HTML, I just need to know the best way to add this into cpanel. Is there a tutorial somewhere?

    Thank you

    the way I did it was: first create a new skin (by clonning x skin) in WHM.
    Then go to /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/your_skins_name.
    In this directory You will find index.html and other files from the user's cpanel. All the icons and the main page of the panel are defined in index.html
