    Not sure about other users, but within cPanel, when I jump to the MySQL Databases subpage, I am usually going there to access the link to phpMyAdmin so that I can work with the Dbs. However, this 1 line link is situated at the bottom of the page after Dbs account management details that I seldom modify. Would it make sense to move that link to the top of the page?

    In cPanel 11 with the X3 theme, that link will be removed from the bottom of the MySQL Databases subpage and appear in the "Databases" section of the homepage. You can preview this for yourself at:

    While I will admit everyone has their own preferences, I personally prefer the one-click access to phpMyAdmin any day of the week rather than fumbling through database subpages.

    I certainly agree that I would prefer a one click solution rather than having to drill down. However, the hosting service I use has control over those issues, and they might see added links in the root control panel as clutter.

    Is the placement of the phpMyAdmin link a theme option? (in that its location can be tweaked with relative ease). TIA

    In X3 it's on the main page (if you have MySQL database access on your account at least). If a webhost provider wants it elsewhere, they will have to provide their own theme, which might simply be a modified X3.
