    Hello,

    I have Root access to my WHM. When i go to customize the cPanel templates as a WHM Root, i can only customize two cPanel templates. Paper Lantern and Retro.

    However if i have WHM Reseller access i could customize three cPanel templates. Paper Lantern, Retro and a template only available to Resellers.

    The Reseller cPanel template is very cool, yet the other two are functional yet are very tiring to look at every day. Yes, i know i could design a new template. But why cant you allow all WHM users access to all three cPanel templates?

    What 3rd style are you seeing? On my stock install I only have Retro and Basic.

    Hello cPanelKenneth,

    I am using the current version of WHM/cPanel, although i have not tested this scenario since the initial release of cPanel 60. When i created an account using WHM and assigned it as a Reseller account, then after logging into WHM as the Reseller account i saw the Retro, Basic (Paper Lantern) and a Reseller template.

    Scroll down and you will see the three templates i saw in my WHM as a Reseller:

    Thanks for your time,

    To be clear, you are saying you see Basic, double rainbow, and Retro as the available styles when logged in as a reseller?

    Hello,

    Thanks for the info.

    When cPanel version 60 was initially released to the public, the day after, i set up a Reseller account and saw the three templates in my WHM customization area. I was disappointed because i saw it was only available to a Resellers clients cPanels. I have not checked this since because i do not have any Reseller accounts as of now.

    Please consider this resolved. I greatly appreciate the time and effort staff have put into this. I now understand it should not exist and i have been shown how i can create templates.

    Thank you cPanelKenneth and Infopro,
