    I've seen a lot of custom cpanel themes, so I would imagine that its reasonably easy to do. If there is a place to download themes or someone that makes them cheap, Id be interested in knowing.

    Well I've contacted CPanel and they won't release the Cpanel tags. The only way to get started with a theme would be to look into existing ones and create your own. I did one and it took bout a week or two to complete at my own pace - http://www.hostradius.com/cpaneldemo/

    i have developed one. which i will release soon for free, or for an extremely small charge for the time put into it.

    i do not have an image up yet....but i like it, so do others that have seen it.

    basically look at the tags...you can edit an existing skin (recommended as there are 200+ files) or start from scratch. get a HTML editor and edit each page and image. tags are a bit confusing at times but easy enough to get the jist of with trial and error... PHP and other scripts can be used, which gives a great effect...you'll have to wait and see what i have done!

    You need a file called api.txt, which lists all of the cpanel tags. I'm not sure where you find it (ask your webhost), or email me for it. It's just a long list of all of the different variables you can use, i.e.:

    $"os"
    $"kernelver"
    $"sendmailpath"
    $"servicestatus"

    ...and so on... Saves trying to find them among the HTML pages.

    Don't wanna risk it. It was discussed at Cpanel forums bout it being a security hole so a static demo will be sufficient.
