Overview

This interface allows you to select the theme for WHM.

A cPanel & WHM theme is the framework on which the system places the style. The theme contains many underlying elements, such as HTML and CSS. We recommend that you use the x theme for WHM, the paper_lantern theme for cPanel, and the x3mail theme for Webmail.

Change a theme

To change a WHM theme, click the link that corresponds to the new theme that you wish to use. If multiple themes do not exist, the interface does not provide any options.


Important:

When you create your own themes or use a theme that cPanel does not provide, you must ensure that the following files exist:

  • /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/$theme/passwd/changepass.html
  • /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/$theme/passwd/index.html

These files control interfaces that the system uses whenever you change a cPanel user's password. If you do not copy or create these interfaces, users cannot change their passwords if the following conditions are true:

  • You used WHM's Force Password Change interface (WHM >> Home >> Account Functions >> Force Password Change) to require the user to change the account's password.
  • The user's password is too old or too weak, as you defined in WHM's Configure Security Policies interface (WHM >> Home >> Security Center >> Configure Security Policies).

Note:

We do not support custom themes or localization for WHM.
