    Your documentation keeps saying to use the XML/JSON stuff you have out now. The examples always show a URL to get the data. How would you guys recommend interfacing with the WHM for WHM Pluggins? I suppose i could just do a
    <?PHP $xml file_get_contents(''); ?> 
    but that seams kinda funky.

    Also do you guys have any documentation on templates or functions that may exist to keep a WHM pluggin fitting the look and feel of the WHM theme. For example in your addon_configsupport.cgi you use defheader("Support Request Configuration"); to define a header at the top of the page.

    I'd like to talk to you a little more in depth about this (regarding documentation), you should know how to get ahold of me privately.

    However, I always recommend using the PHP class (see first sticky thread in this forum) for handling XML-API requests. As far things built into our product, most of the XML-API calls are done via internal methods that aren't exposed via modules..
