    I am using cPanel & WHM 64.0 (build 12) and talking about Manage “cPanel” Themes in Home »Themes »Theme Manager.

    There is clone option available only for deprecated X3 but no option for Paper Lantern.

    Here I want to clone "Paper Lantern".

    Please help me

    Thank you.

    In this area you mention, when you click the first icon for Paper Lantern, you should note that it takes you to the area I mentioned. :) From there click the Customize Style tab at top, and then click the Download Style under the "Basic" style.

    Here's the docs on customizing the style:
    Guide to cPanel Interface Customization and Branding - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation
    Guide to cPanel Interface Customization - cPanel Style Development - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

    Once you've customized it to your liking, upload it to the server. Documentation for that is here:
    Customization - Version 64 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    If none of that is useful, please describe in more details what you're hoping to do.

    Hi,

    Cloning of Paper Lantern is not something we support. As InfoPro pointed out, we provide a wide variety of means to customize Paper Lantern. If those methods do not fulfill your needs, we'd like to know what you want to accomplish so we can provide guidance and improved functionality.

    It is very obvious what is being asked here... I cannot understand how cpanel staff doesn't understand. I am having the same issue regarding the original posters request. I want to make modifications to features within the paper lantern theme and cannot do so because the theme keeps hooking back to the original paper lantern folder.

    In fact, the theme itself is the worst.. and I am not exaggerating.. the absolute worst stitched up code I have ever seen in my life.

    We are not asking to do basic customization and limited skinning. We want to entirely modify paper lantern and fix the majority of madness happening in the theme. This is the obvious reason why the original poster is asking and also myself.

    Maybe just a little bit, huh? :confused:

    If you'd like to expand on the issues you see that need fixed, that might be useful here.
