    Does anyone know of any tutorials/help sites etc.. for making your own cpanel skins?

    Anything at all really.... I really want to have a go at this, and I'd rather not modify a previous theme.....

    I'm sure this would be of use to many people, so any help appreciated!

    I might write some, but they would be in a ebook which the person has to pay for (about $100), this is because it will take me alot of time to write and would include some demo skins.
    How many people would be interested in this type of product.

    well there use to be a great skin *xskin2.0* but some moron ruined it, but he will be selling it for a low fee, less than 50 bucks per year. So you can wait for that which should be sometime this week, other than that only free is what is already installed in your cpanel when you get it.

    Making your own skin is easy. I started by just making a copy of an existing skin with my own name, downloaded the whole skin directory, and studied it and tinkered with it on my computer. When I had what I wanted, I uploaded it, then created a few other versions.

    I do my own skins mostly to limit what features are included with various packages and to add a couple features of my own.

    If you know html, just copy one, download it, and within a few hours you'll know what to do. ;)

    I had thought about doing that, I might try later on to get a free skin and then to see how it all works.

    Thanks again.
