    Thanks!

    Need more!

    When I download a style, and open it - it's just gobbletygoop - that using either stuffit or winrar to extract it. I'm clueless and not used to being clueless.

    I recommend copying a style via the cPanel interface and editing that style on the server. It makes debugging and editing MUCH easier.

    Styles are stored in ~/cpanelbranding/theme/style where theme is the theme you are using (such as: x3) and style is the style you are editing.

    but...

    I didn't see how to copy a template besides the root one. I changed the style to the one I wanted and tried copying but it still copied the root one.

    I did get what I wanted but it was a lot more confusing than it appeared on the surface. Don't think the documentation is correct or it's just not specific enough ---- or I was in a hurry and didn't read it carefully!

    Thanks for the reply!

    After experimenting with this, it appears the documentation is correct: you can only clone the default style - which is the behavior you mentioned (and I didn't expect).

    However, you can thwart this limitation by downloading a style then uploading that style. That will create the appropriate files in the paths I mentioned before.

    yes and...

    that's what I did but it definitely didn't work as expected. Though it was a gz file, it expanded to one unnamed file - which I just now figured out is a tar file. I expanded that and it worked. So that behavior wasn't expected either but it's been a long time since I expanded a gz file.

    Now I can play further!
