    Could we have some other name for the "currently selected style"?

    Something other than "[root]"?

    It could be "Current Style: <name>" or something that shows both the current name and something meaningful

    thanks

    It should only show [root] when that is the style you have chosen. If you choose a style such as sundaymorning, sundaymorning should be listed as the currently selected style. Are you not experiencing this behavior, or did you just want us to rename [root]?

    it aways shows [root] for us, even after a style change--sounds like perhaps I should use support instead of this forum. For example, the style changes, but it shows the design of black_ice as [root] in addition to still showing black_ice as an option next to [root].

    Hello jpratt,

    I cannot see the difference between "root" and "servers" styles either upon switching back and forth between them in cPanel > Change Styles area on an account.

    Please note that if you believe there is a a product defect at any point, such defects would be reported to http://bugs.cpanel.net/bugs or using the Bugs link at the top of the forum.

    Since support was mentioned for contact versus the bug report queue for what appears to be have been considered a product defect previously, all users who read this thread would need to know that product defects (bugs) would be reported using http://go.cpanel.net/bugs rather then technical support.

    Thanks!
