    Hi Guys, I'm new to the development under WHM/cPanel, I read some of the documentation that you have and I see there is a lot of possibility to integrate a code to the WHM using API or even write own plugins but I have a different need and maybe you can point me to the right direction.

    What I would like to do is to add a new section to the WHM "Create a New Account" page and I know you can easily clone the default theme and then just edit the docroot/templates/createacct.tmpl and add the code needed but for my small change I think there is a better way.

    I saw in the createacct.tmpl file that there is a line that would do just exactly what I want but can't find any help on google, I'm talking about:

    [% FOREACH custom_field = data.custom_fields;
    INCLUDE "${custom_field.path}" IF custom_field.type == 'tt2';
    END; %]
    and as I see if I could somehow add a new custom_field to the data.custom_fields with a type=tt2 and path='mysection.tmpl' this would work just perfectly

    So my question would be how could I add custom fields to the data variable lets say from API or XML so I don't have to modify the createacct.tmpl file?

    Thanks in advance!
