    Hello how to make so branding pictures of CPanel to stay same after update ? After every update it is overwritten by CPanel's one.




    Thanks.

    the only way to do it is to make your own theme, which is also problematic when cpanel add new features. branding support is really poor at the moment.

    Might try copieing the theme with another name and then editing it so that it doesnt overwrite it. Just a thought.

    that works until they change something, I spent a good few hours designing a theme and a week later cpanel added cpAddons which meant I had to change a few bits. its a great idea if you have the time to modify it.

    Place your images into the branding directory. Nothing is changed there.

    I have found this to be incorrect on occasion, 99% of the time you are infact right but there have been occasions (particularly after major updates) where they have been reverted back to the cpanel defaults, also in the branding conf for x2 one of the header tiles is missing, therefore every time an update is run it replaces the header tile with the cpanel def.

    I replaced all 5 images in mine a long time ago and haven't changed them since. I do make one change though sometimes, to the center image. I have to edit the HTML after a major update that reloads the skin to make sure that center image properties are set to 100% width. That allows it to stretch instead of using the default background image cPanel uses to fill a stretched page.
