    hi,

    just upgraded one server to 11.25, I thought even in the advance that would be a wrong decision and it was so, just a nightmare.

    I used a very own skin, tooks me 3 weeks to develop it, now its broken, it don't display the buttons for help, home and so on on the startpage, also all icons are postponed to the text but the index site are the least-bad thing. Now also english are the default language on all accounts, very bad, the hotline just begann to ring. If I go depper into cpanel, say I select "change language" I got a loop. Nice :mad: Every subpage, also don't show my custom header, it also don't show everithing which I changed in the original theme (it was based on the x3 default theme).

    ok so I thought I can fix this with the branding editor but this editor just say:

    my language file which my also tooks weeks to made it perfekt is also gone and now I've a very bad langauge with tons of faults in spelling. If I change to my language 30% are still english. I want my langage file / translations back! How can I recover my languages?


    I've also dedicated server customers, all of them which made the update have the same bugs, this is a BAD update, I tought it was testet befor but don't looks so.

    In the PDF changelog I can't find anything which give me a note why my skin and lang files are fuc****ed up! :mad: :mad:

    My own written modules, which tooks me also months, are also all death :mad:

    Very bad job cpanel!!! :mad:

    How can I rollback to kick this ***** cpanel version out of my servers?

    We have a similar issue, although it just seems to be the text on the page that is broken.

    As an example, here is a screenshot from the X3 skin (we don't use that skin, so it has not been edited from the default one):

    [​IMG]

    The buttons seem to show the same on our own skin we have as well. I thought the issue was to do with out skin, but I find it odd that its happening on the X3 skin too.

    I have tried running /scripts/upcp --force but that didn't seem to resolve the issue either.

    Has anyone come across this before?

    I had a similar issue, i was able to fix by cloning the theme within whm and then assigning that to cpanel.

    http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/pub/AllDocumentation/ReleaseNotes/branding_css_usage.pdf is info about the new x3 branding and css issue.

    Also from personal experience, if you make a custom theme, dont edit 1 of the default ones or its going to be changed when updates occur., so just clone a theme, then edit the cloned one.

    Enjoy cPanel!
    It' s always the same story. I 'm expreiencing exactly your issues, my branding is just screwed up since the new 11.25 upgrade (it's funny that is called STABLE, I really wonder what STABLE means in cP engineers' brains?!!) They just seem to love to screw up everything, everytime they do aN upgarde, I think it's simple nosense!
    Now it will take me a week to fixin the fricking branding!!!!!! :mad::mad::mad:

    My dream is a server with a version of cPanel that I won't upgrade for at least 5 years!
    And plz don't tell us about security pitfalls!!!
    My servers are not the big CIA servers, just need to run websites!!!!!


    I have to point out, I tried other control panels like Plesk, and after that horrible experience, I decided to stick my ass to cPanel and suffer (but I can't always suffer in silence). :)
