[VERSION 2] Definitely-not-cPaneI DirectAdmin Skin / Custom CSS

edited July 5 in General

Version 1: https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/172458/free-definitely-not-cpanei-directadmin-skin-custom-css

I made a few changes since a few days ago to make it look better, since v1 was well received and I have no reason to keep it for myself I'm posting it here.

Github: https://github.com/vovler/definitly-not-cpanel-directadmin-skin-css

How to install:

1) In DirectAdmin's admin settings, inside "Skin Manager", change the skin to Evolution
2) Using your favorite FTP/STFP program, go to "/usr/local/directadmin/data/skins/evolution/assets/"
3) Upload the css file and optionally the icons file (dont forget to clear cache if you upload the icons).
4) In DA's admin settings go to "Customize Evolution Skin"
5) At "External CSS URL" write "/assets/custom.css" and submit.
6) Optionally, change the logo to a logo with white background.
7) Optionally, in DA's admin settings, inside "Customize Evolution Skin" organize the Menu:User / Reseller / Admin to resemble cPanel's.
8) Optionally, remove all unecessary widgets except "WGT_USER/RESELLER/ADMIN_STATS" for a cleaner look in the right widget bar.

Stock Evolution skin:

Evolution skin w/ Definitely-not-cPaneI v2 + changed icons + menu organization

F.A.Q.:

Q) Is this mobile responsive?
A) Yes.

Q) Have you tested this in the reseller and admin panel?
A) Mostly not, 99% of the attention was spent at the regular user panel, including changing the color of user icons. Icons that are not displayed at the user panel have not been looked at, only color edited in bulk.

Q) Will you ever improve the reseller or admin panel look?
A) Eventually™. But you can fork this, improve it yourself and create a pull request.

Q) The widget bar lost some of it functionality, is it intended?
A) Yes. You can remove some of the display:none's to restore the funtionality that you want.

Q) Ewww. Your css code looks terrible.
A) Yes.

    Really good! Hopefully next version changes reseller/admin too. BTW, How do I change the icons?

    @MikePT not sure if we can do this ourselves, but if not can you add this one to the skins? :)

    You won’t be able to add the icon file without adding to /usr/local/directadmin/data/skins/evolution/assets/ but you can host the .css file and icons externally and then add the http link as the External CSS URL and change the image to the external location.

    You're welcome :)
    You can change the icons if you want to as well, the logo so it doesn't match the dark background, and organize the menu to make it be a bit more similar.
    However those are all optional and in the end it's whatever flavor of ice-cream you prefer.

  • Thank you so much for this! I managed to get something similar to this working awhile back and accidently deleted it without any backups recently. I customized mine a bit and it looks better then ever.

    Sure. Allow me a few days. Can't break what is working!
