Can't change the icon name or 'Description'

    Hello people,

    This is my first post as I never had a problem with cPanel.

    However, first time I need a bit help.

    I have managed to change the icon of a function in cpanel by using 'WHM >> Branding Editor > Edit Branding Style > Main Page Icons'. That part is OK.

    But I can't find a way to change the name of the icon 'Description' (text that appear under the icon itself).

    Maybe I'm stupid or something, but I just can't find that function. Am I missing something obviously? Or do I need to go the hard way - to download complete theme tar ball and dig deep?

    Please let me know if someone have a solution. I will really appreciate the help in this matter.

    Cheers.

    Hello :)

    You should be able to modify the description text by editing the locale via:

    "WHM Home » Locales » Edit a Locale"

    You can copy the "English" locale if you want to create a separate one so you can apply it to different packages.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your answer.

    However, the icon names does not appears there. I have searched but they are not there.

    I'm I missing the point?

    Regards.

    I can clearly see the icon names and descriptions when using "Locale Editor - Live Mode". Could you elaborate on what specifically you can not edit?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    The name of the icons I want to change aren't there.

    I want to change an icon name that appears under 'Software/Services' menu in cPanel.

    The icon is from an cPanel plugin installed.

    The text that appears stems from the "Display Name (in cPanel):" variable when generating the cPanel plugin via:

    "WHM Home » Development » cPanel Plugin File Generator"

    The value is listed as follows in the plugin installation file:

    Code:
    itemdesc:
    You can modify the plugin installation file and reinstall the plugin to use an updated display name under the icon.

    Thank you.

    What would you prefer that section title be called? We have renamed that section to "Software" in Paper Lantern, but if there's a better name out there, we'd love to know.
