    While it does look with the categories, the actual page is too long now and that doesn't look very good.

    I made a custom skin that made use of this and my clients LOVE it. Although, on the example above, the grey background on the icons looks bad. I have the icon backgrounds as white, and organized a little better than that.

    It is a pain in the ass to hunt and peck for the right icon when you are looking through the current skin. Granted, if you use it everyday you will get used to where they are, but most of my clients login to their Cpanel once a week at the most.

    Hi Bert,

    Actually, the xskin is awesome as it is. My only beef is that due to the way that it is integrated with cpanel now, there are big gaps where icons should be. If a feature is turned off, it just disappears, and nothing takes its place. The feature manager is cool, and xskin is cool, but I can't stand the missing icons. If we could choose the order and make it so that the blank spaces are all together at the end, it would look MUCH better.:)

    Well, everything is cool... but I still use my old skin...
    why? ... simple, cause it's LANG-AWARE ...
    and as far as I know, X skin is NOT.

    I hope you make it lang-aware soon, then people from all the world can use it the right way.

    Regards.

    x is 30% lang aware and will be 100% lang aware within the next few months. In any case, the old default skin was 1% lang aware, so I guess this is indeed an improvement ;)

    well, actually.... a "few months" is a LOT OF TIME.
    I'm using a 100% aware theme for about a YEAR! (thanks kosmo!)
    I dont know how cpanel is lagging so much in deliver something that will help a LOT OF PEOPLE so much.
    Btw... 30% in spanish and 70% in english will not help so much someone that dont understand a word of english.
    maybe 90% will help a little... (anyway, I would get a 10% of what is this? or what is that? ...) :)
    Hope you understand,
    No toda la gente puede entender los lenguages que no habla, o que no les enseñaron, por mas que quieran, seria un esfuerzo no necesario, y es por eso que realmente se me hace imposible utilizar estos temas para mis usuarios, ya que en su mayoria estos hablan el español y ni una palabra de ingles, de ser así... contratarían otro host cualquiera, ya que todos son en ingles... entiendes? :rolleyes:

    Saludos! :)

    Carlos,

    Yo te entiendo, pero si hay tantos themes que ya son lang aware, entonces cual es el apuro? ;)

    Ademas, "a few months" no quiere decir sino solamente dos o tres meses. Mientras tanto, la gente puede seguir disfrutando de los otros skins :)

    Well, I dont know so many themes ... just kosmo's themes asaik, and they are PAID themes, I've bought one of them, but you know ... I just want the "default" themes to be the same ... cause the automatic updates, etc.
    with a non-standard theme, you always need to wait this or that to be updates, while with cpanel themes, it's automaticly done in the update of the software.
    Not to mention that they are free. :)
    Also, if a theme is lang-aware, you just need to have ONE THEME, with the lang files translated into 10000 languages, and voilá.
    I would like my users have the option to use X theme too, it's a nice theme ... but not being in spanish, makes it impossible to most of them.

    Just my 0.02

    I love it - The theme's gone. Everyone who made custom themes like me, this was the day where Cpanel updated and killed itself. Also love how Postgre SQL came out

    chattr +i -R the entire frontend directory once done.
    Check out my theme, few added things, removed gaps, chats, even changed up fantastico

    I think the x themes are seriously lacking an iconic link to phpMyAdmin.

    Sure it is in the DB manager but it is a bit hard to find.

    why not just clone or make your own theme and not chattr +i frontend? There is no need to do that as cpanel wont overwrite your custom theme and you are stopping ANY theme in frontend from being overwritten, meaning if there is a bug in any of the skins in the frontend directory, and your resellers use a different theme than your custom theme, if it was buggy, it will remain buggy for eternity until you chattr -i the frontend dir.

    Unless you have time to fix/customize every possible theme in frontend, chattr +i = bad idea.
