Why is the Paper Lantern cPanel theme already a hit?
Posted by Allison on 05 09 2017.
As you know, Paper Lantern is the latest and the most updated responsive cPanel theme to replace the basic X3 theme that was used previously. Web designers and programmers prefer Paper Lantern over X3 for a number of reasons that have made this a great hit.
Why Paper Lantern is Widely Accepted
Let’s have a quick look at why Paper Lantern is widely accepted and preferred by the users.
- Appearance – The key difference between these two cPanel themes lies in their appearance. Moreover, Paper Lantern is responsive and uses sophisticated Bootstrap framework to develop with HTML, JS and CSS.
- File Manager – Not only with appearance, with Paper Lantern, there are improvements in the File Manager too. The menu icons with the theme are entirely different. But all the changes concern the design part while the functions remain the same only with one or two changes. And Trash and Upload are some of them to name.
- Trash – Trash is a unique feature that belongs to the Legacy File Manager. With this feature, whenever a file and/or a directory will be deleted, the deletion won’t be permanent – they will be stored in the Trash. To restore the content of the Trash, just select the removed file and/or directory and click on the Restore option under main menu. But if you empty this location, you’d have no option left to restore those files and/or directories anymore. You can restore them only if you’ve kept a backup beforehand.
- Upload – With Paper Lantern, file upload form of the hosting account supports uploading of multiple files though it’s not possible to upload entire directories. To upload a couple of files at a time, you have to select the files in a folder on your desktop or laptop and just drag and drop them in the form.
Widescreen Displays & Shared Server
Paper Lantern, the latest version of cPanel has already become a great hit with its exclusive features and compatibility with shared servers. The theme is perfectly optimized to easily accommodate latest widescreen display with allowing more stuff to fit on your display screen and making the icons on the monitor bolder and larger.
Enhancement of Previous Features
Paper Lantern ensures that everything get arranged properly, perfectly and evenly both vertically and horizontally. The new Paper Lantern design keeps almost all the previous navigation tools – but the bars, icons and the graphic elements have got improved notably. It preserves all the functionalities while adding a better look and feel. And these have made Paper Lantern highly popular within a short time span.
