    Hello all,

    I would like for my resellers to be able to upload their own skins so they can brand their services. I know this can be done but I don't want their custom skins to be available to all other resellers. Is ther a way or plans for a way to control this?

    Thanks!

    Let them decorate it with their own logo and I am sure no-one else will attempt to use it ;)

    A slightly round-about way is to limit your resellers to only sell the packages that you pre-define for them and not allow them to modify them. You could then include the customized themes for that reseller in those packages.

    I though about these but I don't want to limit them on how they create accounts. Also, I don't want them stealing skin ideas and such IYKWIM.

    So I guess there is no way to limit skin views to customers without forcing them on a plan? Kind of new to the cpanal here, so I'm sorry if this is stupid, but is there a way to do it the way I need it? Skins seem to me a powerful selling feature. But if a reseller bought a skin or made his, I can imagine he would not be happy to find out it was available to other resellers on the system.

    Thanks anyways for yor replies!!! I would love it if you cpanel guys considered adding this feature :)

    Regards ....

    Well,
    I tried to do this with a PHP script. This failed because all the CPanel tags would parse automatically. So I couldnt do if/else functions in the same file. It is possible, but waaay to much work for me. One possibility is using the CPanel owner tag. Make a theme that just has a blank for a logo. It then looks in the owner's directory for this file. You cant do the whole theme this way, but its a start.
