We are working with the Features of the cPanel branding/login for our reseller domain account.

Is it possible for us to prevent the column of information on the left side of the cPanel screen from showing (headers are "General Account Information" and "General Server Information")?

All that we want our clients to see when they login to the cPanel are some selected icons (ex, Mail, Webmail, Web/FTP Stats). We've figured out how to remove the icons ("features") that we don't want displayed, but can't see how or if we can remove the information on the left side.

Many thanks.

In the Branding Editor, click Edit next to Entry Page (index.html). There starting around line 140 is the HTML and API2 code that governs the display of information. Simply remove the items you don't want displayed.

For example: if you don't want the PHP version displayed, remove phpversion| from the list of stats that should be displayed. It may look intimidating at first, but it's fairly self-explanatory.

You can then apply that brand to all accounts you own. No custom theme required. I highly advise against a custom theme whenever possible because of the issues that could arise.

Feature manager will take care of the icons on the "right side" for you :).

Where do we find the Branding Editor link?

Thank you... sounds like the area we need to work at, however.. we can't seem to find the "Branding Editor" link? We are looking from the WHM page and the only options below the cPanel section are "Branding" (which deosn't seem to present a Branding Editor, rather, it allows us to edit the "themes" such as "x2" "x3", etc... we use "x"), Modify cPanel/WHM News, and Shopping Cart Reset.

Our hosting provider is HostGator.

Thanks again.

I would recommend using the X3 theme (default). X will become fully deprecated in version 12 and is currently provided for legacy purposes only.

To get to the Branding Editor (which is in the cPanel interface) via the WHM interface, go to WHM -> cPanel -> Branding then click on the link for X3 to edit X3. This will launch you into the Branding Editor.
