Hi,

I hope someone can help, I’ve recently upgraded to cPanel 11 (11.11.0-STABLE) and the errors on the error log page are now confined to a small text area (code shown below), this seems to serve no purpose but make it harder to read the errors.



Is it possible to change this so that the errors are not confined to the small textarea like in the previous version of cPanel?



<textarea wrap="off" nowrap name="errlog" id="errtext" class="output" cols="80" rows="25" readonly>


ERRORS GO HERE


</textarea>



Thanks
Tim

Can you perhaps post a screen capture of what you are experiencing?
Thanks for the quick response, I’ve attached a screenshot


As you can see the small text area means I have to scroll horizontally to try and view the entire error, the previous version of cPanel just displayed the errors across the entire length of the page, not within a text area

I think this is done so as not to break the theme layout. To view those errors esay enough, click inside that box then hit Ctrl+A on your keyboard, open notepad, right click and paste.

EDIT, looking at your picture you have a custom theme. You might be able to edit that theme to have a wider box possibly. Not familiar with that one though.

I'd like to first note that the theme you are using doesn't readily resemble any of the styles of the X3 theme we distribute.

The new X3 theme does display all the text in what resembles a text area so that it doesn't override the formatting of the X3 theme (if you were using a style we bundle for the X3 theme you'd see what I mean).

The old X theme (which you can access and still use in cPanel 11 though it isn't recommended) does as you say, simply throws the errors to the screen. Note that even in this case, you need to scroll - except now with your browser's scrollbars for the page as the error messages can get rather long.

You may want to contact whoever developed that style or theme for further assistance though as that style is not something we produced.

Thank you both for your responses, it’s very much appreciated.

Just one final question, you mention using the old X theme but it’s not recommended, can I ask why its not recommended, could I experience problems using the X theme?



p.s My screen resolution is 1920x1200 so I can’t remember the last time I needed to scroll horizontally :)

The main issues are that X and X2 were designed for cPanel 10, not with cPanel 11 in mind. As a result, some of the new functionality of cPanel 11 cannot be accessed by these older themes which are not cPanel 11 aware. Additionally, these themes will likely be deprecated by version 12, so it's a good idea to stop using them and transition to a cPanel 11 aware theme at this time.
