Over the coming weeks, the next major cPanel update version 60 will be pushed out to our Shared hosting fleet. This iteration of cPanel brings with it the deprecation of the X3 theme we’re all so used to seeing, instead replacing it with the newer, flatter Paper Lantern theme.
Paper Lantern brings with it a bunch of improvements, including a more modern, flatter look, a more consistent user experience that will take users less time to feel familiar with and lastly, it has been built on the Twitter Bootstrap UI kit, making it easier for web developers to create their own custom themes.
For those with separation anxiety, there’s no need to worry. Paper lantern offers a ‘retro’ skin that will take you back to the look you know and love.
If you’re a cPanel user and want to switch to the retro style, you’ll find a complete set of instructions here.
